Plastics play an important role in almost every aspect of our lives: we now use around 20 times more plastic than we did 50 years ago. This is becoming a hude problem for the environment and adding massive strain on marine eco systems. Naeco has decided to optimise the lifespan of plastics by reusing and recycling them items as many times as possible to avoid them entering landfill or our oceans.
At the core of everything we do here at Naeco is a desire to fight the scourge of plastic pollution that blights our oceans. Whether that involves designing and making swimwear with as low an impact as possible from 100% recycled and recyclable plastic fabric, arranging beach clean operations, or using our voice to encourage others to consider how they can reduce their reliance upon single-use plastics.
Each pair of NAECO swim shorts are made from 15 plastic bottles. We offer free shipping and returns so it really is a hassle free, risk free purchase. Click the link below to get your NAECO swim shorts and save our oceans.
Plastic bottles, straws and other plastic waste is collected and passed through a series of steps of cleaning and crushing to obtain plastic flakes which, through a mechanical process are converted into rough polyester spun fibre that is manipulated to obtain the final quality. This recycled yarn is then used to develop our fabrics.
Naeco was born out of a need, a need to rid the ocean of the terrible plastic contamination mankind is pouring into it daily. As an avid kite surfer and scuba diver I spent a massive amount of my time in the ocean. Over the years I saw more and more plastic in the ocean that was spoiling the ecosystem. This is a huge problem, that I knew I had to try and fix. Naeco symbolises what I believe the fabrics of the future should be and what I believe a luxury fashion brand of the future needs to be. Using state of the art recycling methods, textile research and technology we are able to make fabrics re-born and repurposed for new lives as luxury clothing made to last.
Our aim is simple; to create a luxury brand that shows the world that there is no need to carelessly use our worlds natural resources. We can make clothing from sustainable materials that have a positive impact on our planet.
