Our Commitment to Sustainable Fabrics and Materials
At WAVE, we've made it our mission to create exceptional sustainable products that combine quality, design, and affordability. We understand the urgent need to address environmental challenges, particularly the alarming amount of plastic polluting our oceans. With hundreds of fish being taken from our seas and marine wildlife facing increasing threats, it's clear that action is necessary to protect our precious marine ecosystems.
We're driven by a vision of a better future for generations to come – a legacy of respect for our oceans. This vision has led us to focus on finding sustainable fabrics that not only align with our values but also seamlessly integrate into your everyday life. To offer a wide range of options, we've carefully selected different fabrics for our clothing. Here's an insight into the materials that comprise our products.
Recycled Polyester: A Sustainable Choice
The majority of our products are crafted using recycled polyester, also known as rPET. This innovative material is derived from recycled plastic bottles, diverting plastic from landfills and oceans. By using recycled polyester, we contribute to reducing our environmental footprint significantly. This process requires fewer resources compared to creating new fibers, resulting in reduced CO2 emissions.
Organic Cotton: Naturally Cultivated and Chemical-Free
Cotton is a versatile and natural fabric that we utilize with a sustainable twist. Our organic cotton is grown without synthetic agricultural chemicals like fertilizers or pesticides, ensuring a more environmentally friendly cultivation process. By using organic cotton, we support a cleaner, healthier ecosystem and contribute to the reduction of harmful chemicals in our environment.
Recycled Nylon: Versatility Meets Sustainability
Nylon is a versatile fabric, especially suited for activewear. Our choice of recycled nylon diverts waste from landfills and oceans, while its production demands fewer resources compared to virgin nylon. This means less water, energy, and fossil fuels are consumed, contributing to a more sustainable production process.
Confronting Microfiber Concerns
The issue of microfibers poses a challenge in the fashion industry. These tiny threads are released from synthetic fabrics with each wash, contributing to microplastic pollution in our oceans. WAVE takes this issue seriously and recommends washing your clothes only when necessary. We suggest using a fiber filter bag to capture these microfibers and prevent them from entering waterways, thus helping to keep our oceans clearer.
