SUSTAINABILITY

Why make products sustainable?

The days where businesses are not held accountable for their decisions, values and impact are gone, and rightly so. Our world needs changing, and business methods must adapt alongside that. When you are buying from a business, you want to invest your money in a product that matters and values the balance of nature. Our world cares for us, let’s care for our world now!

How is Fenzi swim sustainable?

We started out our search for a manufacturer in Europe in 2019. We can definitally say it wasn’t easy nor cheap, but very worth it. Our very first Fenzi swim collection came out just the way we hoped and we couldn’t be more proud of that. The sewing factory we work with only delivers products of high quality made with care and a lot of patience. The hard working employees get paid fairly and work in a clean and save environment. 

In 2020 we started designing our just released Fit collection. This time we have taken the production even closer to home, in Amsterdam. A big step for Fenzi swim, because when doing so we have reduced the CO2 emissions that are released during transportation by almost 90%. How? By always taking the train :)

Our hang tags and string - The hang tags are made from paper and the strings are made of 100% natural hemp.
Our blotting paper and stickers Are plastic-free.
Fenzi swim bagOur eco bag is made of 100% cotton. It’s made by using environmentally friendly processes and under safe and socially responsible working conditions.
PackagingWe send all our products in cardboard boxes made of 67% recycled paper and that are 100% biodegradable.

 

 

Our future goals

In our 2021 swim collection we will be introducing Econyl. A 100% regenerated nylon yarn derived from pre and post industrial waste such as discarded fishing nets, carpet fluff (the top part of Nylon carpets which have got to the end of their useful life), tulle etc.: all such materials, once they have reached the end of their useful life, instead of being disposed of in the landfill, are recovered and regenerated by means of a complex chemical-physical process.

Our goal in the future is to make all our products from Econyl.
