June X MEC - Made from recycled bottles with love
Made for your countless adventures, filled with sunshine whilst chasing the waves. This capsule offered in exclusivity online and in the Mountain Equipment Co-op stores is entirely made with recycled fabrics from plastic bottles and garbage recovered from Mediterranean sea. Designed for you and approved by the planet, these styles will follow you wherever the day takes you…
It was a project for us for quite some times now to work with recycled fabrics, we have decided to make a difference for our planet by introducing this capsule in every Mountain Equipment Co-op stores. All the swimsuits from this exclusive collection are eco-friendly. Plus, they are entirely made in Canada. Are you ready to catch your next wave with us?
Here's how we make a difference for our planet...
The fabrics used are made of 85% recycled materials. These are actually bottles of water and plastic waste recovered in the Mediterranean Sea. This waste is first recovered, then sorted and recycled to create fabrics that will become our eco responsible swimsuits. What's better than soaking up the sun in a swimsuit that helps and support the environment?
The energy consumed during the printing process of our fabric prints’ is generated by a solar panel installed on the roof of our fabric supplier. Plus, the amount of water that is used during the printing process has been reduced by 100% compared to standard processes.
Also, let’s not forget that Mountain Equipement Co-op and June Swimwear are both Canadian companies and that by buying our swimsuits you support local businesses, you know where your bathing suits were designed and under what conditions they were made.
Making a difference one step at the time is a small effort that will takes us to a new journey!
