Swim Trunks Made From Plastic Bottles Curb Pollution In Ocean

By

Every year, about one million sea birds are harmed by plastic that ends up in oceans around the world. Around 100,000 marine mammals are also negatively impacted by plastic waste annually. This stems largely from excessive plastic usage and pollution. New Yorkers, for example, throw away 24 million plastic bottles every week and many of those items never find their way to recycling facilities.

Business partners, Isabella Cisneros and Ramiro Carranza, were concerned about the environment and wanted to make a lasting positive impact. The idea for a sustainable swimsuit line first came to them while vacationing in Tulum, Mexico during 2016. After living sustainably and connecting with nature at an eco-friendly hotel, the couple began thinking about meaningful ways to tackle the issue of pollution in the environment.
