This UV suit is made of 78 % recycled polyamide, which has been manufactured by using mostly residual fishnets, old carpets and clothes. Over 600 000 metric tons of fishnets end up in the world’s oceans each year and everything from dolphins to seals and smaller fish get caught in these abandoned nets. The nets drift with the strong currents and scrape the bottom surface, destroying the coral reefs of the oceans. These reefs are essential to the survival and health of both the world’s oceans and human beings.
The UV suit is made of yarn that has been spun using what is collected from these drifting garbage patches, melted down and recycled into materials that can be used to make new clothes. This sustainable UV suit is part of the process that helps clean up the world’s oceans.
