Make a Splash in Re-Loved Swim – our New Recycled Range
Posted in: product

Don’t just look cool by the pool this summer, make a statement in our first ever range of recycled swimwear, Re-Loved Swim. Made from a minimum of 80% recycled polyester fabric offcuts and PET bottles, Re-Loved Swim helps to reduce what might otherwise have ended up in landfill.

Textile waste and plastic pollution are a huge problem in our industry and beyond. That’s why earlier this year we launched our Re-Loved Sweats range, which uses a minimum of 30% recycled cotton to transform fabric off-cuts into men’s and women’s hoodies, trackies, pullovers and tees. With summer right around the corner, you can continue do good, look good and feel good in Re-Loved Swim.

“We know our customers are worried about waste - we are too. As a big company, our commitment to sustainability has the power to help make the future better for everyone. Re-Loved is only the beginning when it comes to minimising our impact on the environment, we've got big plans,” says Kelly McBride, Bonds' Head of Marketing.

Available in on-trend one and two-piece options for women, including the sun-smart Paddlesuit, full brief bottoms, triangle tops, bandeaus and more, you’ll find the perfect look to suit your beachside style in basic colours and pretty prints.

5 Ways You Can Help Protect Our Oceans This Summer

Feel even better jumping into the ocean on a hot summer’s day (in your recycled Re-Loved Swimwear, of course) and by following our top 5 tips for protecting our waters from waste.

1. Cut down on plastic use: An easy way to do this is by remembering your reusable bottles, cups, and bags when you're out and about this summer. 

2. Volunteer your time to clean up: Whether you put your hand up to help a cause like 'Clean Up Australia', get in on the 'Take 3 for the Sea' initiative or create your own clean up challenges with your family and friends, take some time to pick up the rubbish you see by the sea this summer and save it from ending up in the ocean and harming our fragile ecosystem. 

3. Donate to an ocean charity: Some great charities to donate to include Green Peace's Help Save the Reef, Australian Marine Conservation Society and Clean Up Australia Day

4. Keep up to date on the latest environmental news: The more you know about the issues facing our oceans and get familiar with expert advice on how to best protect our oceans from waste and deterioration, the better you'll be able to hone in your approach to help. 

5. Share what you know with family and friends:
You don't necessarily have to preach to get your tribe on board, you can set an example via your actions instead. e.g. If you use your reusable coffee cup, say no to plastic straws when you're out, choose sustainably sourced seafood and/or share interesting ocean conservation articles you read on social media, you'll notice that your friends and family will naturally become interested in the making a difference too.
