Healthy Seas is our partner when it comes to cleaning the oceans of litter and waste nets. The organization was founded in 2013 and since then has been operating under the motto: "A journey from waste to wear." Through its large network of volunteer divers and in cooperation with stakeholders from the fishing industry, it ensures that ocean waste becomes a sustainable resource. The company Aquafil turns this waste like e.g. rescued nylon fishing nets into ECONYL® yarn.

At bekeen we are proud to source the fabric for our products from this reliable and environmentally responsible partnership. Together with Healthy Seas, we can show you some impressive figures from their internal data pool below.

Do Good Things and Talk About it

Healthy Seas not only uses its reach to clean up the seas, but also creates an improved awareness of their environment among young people. Our partner does this by organizing educational programs and beach cleanups as well as participating in school fairs.

A Mission with Great Impact

Since 2013 to date, Healthy Seas has collected a gigantic, almost intangible amount of marine litter. Comparing it to the world's largest mammal makes the number a little more understandable, but no less impressive.

One Net Makes Many Swimsuits

One ton of nylon waste is enough for 23.000 pairs of socks or a lot of swimsuits. Now multiply that by 773 and you will see the huge potential in cleaning up our oceans. Potential for sustainable swimming and a slightly better world!
