Ocean Positive | Recycled From The Sea

Ocean Positive - What If You Could Wear Something That Was Good For The Ocean?

OceanPositive swimwear and hydroskin rashguards are made using recycled nylon from fishing nets which have been abandoned by fishing vessels having snagged on reefs wrecks etc.

These "Ghost Nets" amount to over 600,000 tonnes of lost gear every year. The main hazard is to marine life - from invertebrates to large marine mammals. The "Ghost Nets" continue to fish, long after they have been abandoned, and account for countless lives. The netting, very slow to degrade, scrubs coral, creating a desolate seascape where they are dragged over the reef by shifting currents.

Now, all over the world, dive teams are removing these "Ghost Nets" from the wrecks and reefs, often at great depths, and bringing them up to the surface where they can be recycled and spun into nylon yarn.
Fourth Element's Ocean Positive range uses fabric made from ECONYLl®, the recycled yarn, combined with Lycra® to make a line of active swimwear.

A "Grave To Cradle" Product

"The OceanPositive range is a statement of what we feel is our responsibility to protect the environment which we love, and we believe we should protect." Jim Standing, co-founder of Fourth Element.

This concept reverses the traditional Cradle to Grave product development model to deliver a Grave to Cradle solution, to produce a product designed by divers, made from marine waste, sourced by divers.

All the styles are designed to look great, but also practical, especially for wearing under a wetsuit. Some bikini styles have no clasps, others have a single clasp or tie, to be more comfortable under a wetsuit. At the same time, the simple minimalist designs are flattering and comfortable, with several padded styles available.

The result is a practical stylish and functional range of swimwear ideal for active watersports users and use under wetsuits etc that is beneficial to the marine environment and helps to fund the clearing up of marine debris and ghost fishing nets!
