Volcom Releases Women’s Swimwear Made From Recycled Fishing Nets
Volcom, a lifestyle brand that produces board-sports oriented products, has introduced its first-ever ocean friendly women’s swimwear collection.
The Simply Solid Swim Collection consists of 78% ECONYL® yarn, which is produced by up-cycling the Nylon, contained in discarded clothing, carpets and fishing nets, into raw material without any loss of quality.
After the release of Men’s Mod-Tech Boardshorts made from recycled plastic bottles earlier this year, Volcom took another step in turning its sustainability commitments into action.
Volcom’s first step was to establish responsible manufacturing program that ensures that company’s products are made responsibly and are compliant with the highest global social and chemical regulatory practices. Since 2014, Volcom has also been a member of Fair Labor Association.
Volcom continuously measures and monitors the impact of its business on the environment, paying special attention to areas of operations that require improvements.
Recently, Volcom also updated its 2020 sustainability targets. To meet these targets, company plans to increase the amount of recycled material in its polyester and nylon and boost the usage of organic, recycled and/or better cotton in its products by 2020. Volcom also aims to create an internal employee and leadership New Future sustainability certification program that will allow at least 90% of employees to complete certification.
