Swimwear made using recycled plastic bottles!

26 June 2019

 Pandaddy
New Funky Trunks and Funkita swimwear made using recycled plastic bottles!

Innovation is in the DNA of Funky Trunks and Funkita, and not just for creating crazy prints but to be part of the solution to the complex environmental issues that we all must face. With the launch of our latest collection, Pandamonium, we are proud to be offering an exciting new range of environmentally conscious swimwear that is made using recycled plastic bottles.

The process

The Eco C-Infinity fabric used for the new eco range is made by collecting used plastic bottles, washing and chopping them into flakes, melting the flakes to form a chip and melting the chip to make the recycled fabric fibres that are knitted to create the yarn. This process emits fewer greenhouse gases and conserves water and energy compared to the process of creating new virgin fibres. As well as giving new life to waste and reducing their environmental impact, the Eco C-Infinity swimwear fabric retains the superior quality, exceptional colours and chlorine resistance that Funky Trunks and Funkita are known for.

"From the first pair of Funky Trunks sewn 17 years ago, we have always wanted to be part of the solution to combat throwaway fashion by producing garments that are high quality and durable. With new technology it's exciting that we can now use throwaway plastic bottles in our production process to make our long-lasting swimwear," explained Duncan McLean, Funky Trunks and Funkita founder.

 Pandamania

"From banning single use coffee cups in our office to reducing our use of single use packaging, we are constantly seeking ways to reduce our footprint in the production and delivery of our products. Where plastic packaging is required, we are trialing a technology that converts plastic into materials which degrade and then biodegrade in the environment leaving nothing more than CO2, water and biomass for fungi to feed on. This oxo-biodegradable plastic could be part of the solution to our war on plastic waste, especially the millions of tons of plastic that end up in our oceans."
