Speedo launches its most sustainable swimwear collection yet with support from the environmentally conscious female collective
Speedo, the world’s leading swimwear brand, has stepped up its sustainable swimwear credentials with the launch of its latest eco swimwear collection, made from ECO EnduraBrite – a recycled fabric made from plastic bottles & ocean waste.
Representing the collection in Speedo’s latest campaign is a harmonious collective of eco-conscious women living their sustainable journeys and realizing their ambitions to help contribute to a better future for the world’s oceans. These inspirational women include Nikki Hawkes and Sal Montgomery, founders of the Ocean 8 Challenge, an activity that encourages people to take part in a daily ocean swim and beach clean for World Ocean Day last June 8, and Nicole Dulieu and Grace Smith, founders of Dip & Clean, an area that encourages wild swim dips and beach clean in Cornwall.
Also featured within the campaign is Skylar Collins, a sustainable living, marine biology master’s student who contributes to the ocean, a purpose-driven business on a mission to end the ocean plastic crisis, alongside Angel Arutura, an activist for social and climate justice and Pippa Best, writer, sustainable advocate, and ocean swimmer.
Speaking about the campaign, Sal from Ocean 8 Challenge said: ‘We are so excited to be a part of this campaign for such an important cause. It is so amazing that Speedo is tackling the problems around plastics in such a creative way. We wear clothes every day, so why not start putting some of our plastic waste to use -and make some cool swimwear in the process!’
Sustainability advocate Pippa said: ‘When you swim a lot you fall in love with the ocean and all that exists in between. You realize we’re not separate from this, we’re a part of the same ecosystem. The more you understand this, the more you realize we have a responsibility to protect our oceans, which is why it’s great to see a global brand like Speedo tackling the ocean plastic crisis.’
United by a love of the ocean, Speedo’s latest campaign introduces a brand new collection of eco swimwear which has been crafted from recycled yarn made from plastic bottles and other ocean plastic. The collection introduces two new fabrics; Eco EnduraBrite and Eco Endurance+. The innovative fabrics, which feature up to 82% and 53% recycled waste respectively, were created in response to the growing global issues surrounding plastic waste and the devastating impact it is having on our beloved oceans.
Offering an eclectic selection of swimsuits, two pieces, rash tops, and a long sleeve zip suit, the new collection features an on-trend print in vibrant colors.
