Sustainability. There is no other topic at the forefront of every conversation at the moment than sustainability. Everywhere you turn, everyone wants to discuss or criticize people, packaging or products for being part of the current epidemic. Instead of really discussing the solution, all we really seem to be doing is comparing each other to find faults in their achievement. I’m not perfect but I do try to eat less meat, I do try to get trains instead of flying and I do try to not to buy single use plastic. Where I do feel like I’m excelling is when it comes to clothing, I try to educate myself on what process a fabric has had to go through, where an item was made and travelling from and what kind of upkeep would it need like dry cleaning. All we can really do is continue to educate ourselves so that the little actions all add up. Which is how I discovered CDLP’s Riva swim briefs when I was grabbing a few last minute necessities for a holiday in the South of France. Created in collaboration with Grand Hotel Tremezzo, these bright and comfortable (as comfy as their underwear) retro style briefs that are actually made with ECONYL® — a regenerated premium nylon fibre made from recovered nylon waste from oceans and landfills, such as fishing nets from oceans, fabric scraps from mills and carpets destined for landfill and transformed through a radical regeneration and purification process allowing the nylon waste to be recycled right back to its original purity. Which means the regenerated nylon is exactly the same as virgin nylon and has the potential to be recycled infinitely, without ever losing its quality. Now we just need more brands to follow suit and offer product that is equally as long-lasting and not just for some brief moment.
