EG DAMGAARD is a Danish swimwear company that uses only ECONYL fabrics, which are created from ocean waste such as fishing nets and other plastic waste. This plastic waste is then recycled into strong nylon which becomes the luxurious Italian fabrics they use.
As well as being a solution to waste, ECONYL regenerated nylon is also better when it comes to climate change. It reduces the global warming impact by up to 80% compared to using oil. The fabric is made of 80% ECONYL and 20% elastane.
