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.
