Oceanview is now stocking this new range of swimwear…
To celebrate World Oceans Day, Fourth Element are launching a new concept in swimwear!
OceanPositive is made using recycled nylon from “Ghost” fishing nets, abandoned by fishing vessels after snagging on reefs and wrecks. These “Ghost Nets” continue to fish, often ensnaring marine life and posing a hazard to divers. The Ghost Fishing Project enlists teams of divers to remove these nets and bring them to the surface, where they are recycled.
OceanPositive uses finest quality Lycra® fabric made with these recycled nylon yarns to turn the traditional product development model of “Cradle to Grave” on its head, as we create a line of swimwear from marine waste.
OceanPositive takes dangerous fishing gear, sourced by divers, and makes a practical product line, designed by divers, to be comfortable under a wetsuit.
We meet divers from all over the world who are passionate about the health of the oceans. This is a product designed for them: one which is genuinely good for our environment and helps to clean up our seas.
“We believe that everyone has a responsibility to protect the ocean environment which we love, and need.
It’s World Oceans Day and today we are launching our new concept, OceanPositive – swimwear and rashguards made using recycled nylon from “Ghost” fishing nets.”
Please help us to spread the message by taking a minute to like and share our video which explains ghost fishing and how we plan to be part of the solution.”
