    Sustainability

    I am thrilled to be starting a sustainable journey with the new AquaDash brand. 

    Having developed a range of sustainable products as well as incorporating sustainable packaging and labelling, I want to know that while AquaDash offers customers a great choice of products we are also doing something good for the environment.

    Our entire swimwear range will be made from discarded plastic bottles that are sadly found floating in our oceans.Starting in 2021, the outer-shell of our swim parkas will follow suit!  And yes, even the smallest details matter so we strive to be as sustainable and ethical as possible in all areas.

    A frightening estimated 60 million plastic bottles are discarded EVERY day.   Upon collection of the bottles, manufacturers are able to melt them down and create the recycled polyester yarns that we use to make our garments.  The process removes all foreign substances, making it almost like a “new again” raw material.  It takes more time and effort to produce sustainable fabric compared to non-sustainable textiles, and I hope you think it is as brilliant as we do.

    As an Australian owned business, we are simply trying to do our part in making our oceans a cleaner place for our marine life and for the benefit of those who come after us.
