Sustainable Swimwear: Manakai Swimwear

"The Maui based company uses sustainable techno-fabric created from regenerated nylon—they’ve partnered with Carvico and Econyl® to ensure their materials are top-notch. Econyl® creates the yarn from 100% regenerated nylon fibre from fishnets and other nylon waste and Carvico weaves the yarn into soft swimwear fabric. When compared with traditional fabrics, Econyl® yarns used 2/3 less energy, less water, reduces global crude oil extraction, reduces air, water, and soil contamination, and recovers nylon waste from around the world." - SUP Examiner

Manakai Swimwear was recently contacted by Rebecca Parsons, a seasoned writer and longtime ocean lover. She was curious how our swimwear held up in the surf so we sent her our best active bikini and off to Belize she went.
