Sustainability sits at the foundation of everything we create. Our highly green vision means that every single part of our sustainable swimwear, from the fabric right down to the packaging, is made from 100% recycled materials.
The accumulation of plastic in our oceans has surpassed crisis point; by 2050 there will be more plastic in our oceans than fish in the sea. So wherever possible, we strive to reduce the amount of plastic in our oceans during our environmentally friendly production process. We take 7 plastic bottles from our oceans and landfills to produce each pair of MARDA swim trunks.
7 reused plastic bottles are taken from our oceans and landfills to create Marda Men’s swim trunks. Everything starts with ocean waste plastic. We collab recycled plastic bottles and post-industrial waste (including our own) to initiate the ethical manufacturing process. The waste material is chopped, ground, washed, melted and reformulated into a high-quality chip that is used to form the fibre. Then, through spinning and air-jet texturing the fibre is formed into yarn. Next, the yarn is taken and after a rigorous quality check, custom made into highly technical Japanese fabric. The end result? Fabric that is, crispy, light, soft, water-resistant and able to dry in few minutes.
Not only is our very identity based on environmentally friendly manufacturing, we also care about the people behind the manufactory. That is why we have teamed up with manufacturers who are, ethically certified through rigorous checks fulfilling extremely strict requirements. We are proud to say that in conjunction with this, they remain at the very forefront of fabric technology. The result? A socially responsible premium quality product.
