Sunseeker and Sustainability
By 2023, we aim to produce more than 20% of our apparel assortment from recycled materials in accordance with the Recycled Claim Standard (RCS) and Global Recycled Standard (GRS). We are working towards this aim by reducing the usage of conventionally-produced fabrics in our manufacturing and production processes. Instead, we are sourcing more sustainable alternatives such as recycled nylon and polyamide made from pre-consumer material to encourage circular fashion. Pre-consumer material consists of waste material generated during the manufacturing process.
According to the RCS and GRS:
Materials are proven to meet the ISO definition of recycled
Identity of recycled material is maintained in the chain of custody
Products contain higher percentages of recycled content
By reclaiming and refashioning scrap material into high quality knitted textiles, every stitch of our swimwear aids in minimising waste generation and preserving space for the next generation. Choosing Sunseeker swimwear instead of swimwear made from new nylon helps to save the earth’s precious resources, one beautifully-made and consciously-bought swimsuit at a time.
Printing that Protects our Planet
Dyeing processes in traditional textile printing consume staggering volumes of water and utilise toxic chemicals which leach into our ecosystem, hurting the environment and polluting drinkable water sources. At Sunseeker, we are keen to keep the ocean pristine for all swimmers. We have thus teamed up with our manufacturers to improve water quality and ensure clean output in our production process.
Prior to discharge, coloured sewage produced during printing must undergo automatic biochemical sewage treatment. Bacteria and microorganisms adsorb and eliminate harmful chemicals and pigments, neutralising hazardous sewage before discharge.Since 2019, we have been using treated wastewater for printing and other water-intensive procedures.
In 2020, we have further reduced the usage of chemicals in production and level of harmful substances in the discharged sewage. By 2021, we aim to achieve our goal of zero sewage discharge by using treated wastewater in all manufacturing and production processes.
In digital printing, fabric runs through the printer at high speeds. Then, the printed fabric is steamed, washed, and dried in subsequent treatments. Compared with traditional printing methods, digital printing does not require usage and maintenance of patterned rotary screens.
Benefits of digital printing include:
Sharp and clear printed designs, accurately positioned patterns, and flexible choice of colour combinations
Reduced water usage and fewer treatments as application of new colours do not require pre-wash treatments
Lower fixed costs as colour separation and screen etching are not required
Shorter printing times for faster sampling and delivery
