To meet consumer desire for eco-friendly activewear, O’Neill, the original American surf brand, has developed a line of women’s swimwear made with Hyosung’s Mipan regen nylon as part of its new O’Neill Blue sustainable collection.
Mipan regen nylon is 100 percent recycled from reclaimed waste, which saves resources from being removed from the earth. The fiber is recognized and certified by the Global Recycled Standard (GRS) of the Control Union in the Netherlands for its energy saving benefits.
O’Neill recently announced its mission to minimize the impact on the planet and become a frontrunner on sustainability. Founder, Jack O’Neill, said it himself: “The ocean is alive, and we’ve got to take care of it.”
In 1996, O’Neill founded the O’Neill Sea Odyssey as a commitment to educating youth about ocean conservation. Today, the company carries on the spirit of its founder in protecting our playgrounds through ocean initiatives, supply chain and expanding the O’Neill Blue sustainable product collection.
