WILD & PACIFIC® is a swimwear brand with its roots in Colombia, the most biodiverse country on Earth. Growing up in this beautiful country made us self - conscious about aware of the importance of taking care of our planet.
As young entrepreneurs and new generation creatives we have the responsibility to protect our Mother Earth by including green practices in our businesses.
Our goal is to become a true brand of the future, achieving sustainable profitability while protecting the best interest of all Wild & Pacific related stakeholders, from our clients, to our producers and manufacturers, and Planet Earth as a whole. We can’t ignore the environmental issues our planet is suffering, this is why we are committed on aligning our business practices with our purpose and values as a Company.
Now, working with ECONYL® fiber, we can achieve our goal of becoming a sustainable brand, creating high end and conscious swimwear, that aims to make sustainability desirable, meaningful, durable and luxurious.
LUXE TECHNO-FIBER MADE FROM DISCARDED FISHNETS
ECONYL® is a techno-fiber made 100% from regenerated nylon sourced from discarded fishnets, industrial plastic and other nylon waste types recovered from landfills and oceans all over the world.
Ghost fishnets represent the 75% of the great pacific garbage patch, which makes it the most polluting and hazardous agent for ocean wildlife.
With ECONYL® we can re-use and re-create high end bikinis without consuming additional resources while simultaneously protecting and cleaning our oceans.
The ECONYL® process begins with rescuing nylon and plastic waste such as fishnets and industrial plastic found on landfills and oceans all over the world. That waste is then sorted to recover as much nylon as possible.
2. PURIFY AND REGENERATE
After a full regeneration and purification process, nylon is back to its original purity, ready to be used again and again.
ECONYL® regenerated nylon is now ready to be processed and turned into the best swimwear techno - fabric we all love.
