New this season, Frugi swimwear is made from recycled plastic!
We’ve been working behind the seams to create an even more sustainable swimwear collection and we’re so excited to share it with you! From this summer onwards Frugi swimwear will be made from recycled post-consumer plastic. So, you could be wearing the plastic drinks bottles that you throw into your household recycling in the shape of funky Frugi swimwear! How clever is that?!
REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE!
We're always looking for new ways to innovate our designs and explore techniques to create the best sustainable products that are kind to people and the planet. We love the planet we live on and we do our best to protect it! Our outerwear collection has always been made from recycled materials, and we felt our swimwear needed an upgrade to match!
Introducing our NEW Spring/Summer 21 Swimwear collection made from recycled post-consumer polyester.
"But how does this magic happen?" we hear you ask... well ponder no longer, read on to find out just how we turn single-use plastic into something truly Frugitastic!

It was a big deliberation considering how to make a swimwear collection that was functional, fit for purpose and would last for generations, enabling it to be handed down - all while being a sustainable choice for our customers! Using the recycled post-consumer polyester (PET) route was really important to us as we discovered we could make our beautiful Frugi Outerwear while also helping to tackle the worldwide plastic pollution crisis. Sustainability is high on our agenda here at Frugi, so we felt we wanted to improve our Swimwear offering and ensure it was created using the same process. Wherever possible we always use 100% recycled fabrics.
HOW DO FRUGI MAKE SURE THE MANUFACTURING PROCESS IS ETHICAL AND SUSTAINABLE?
We use GRS (Global Recycle Standard) certified yarns in all of our recycled Frugi fabrics, and visit our supply base regularly to conduct our own audits.
The team visits our partners in China regularly as we firmly believe in working with them to help them grow as we grow.
WHAT CAN WE DO TO REDUCE MICRO-PLASTICS AND HELP THE ENVIRONMENT?
We can all do our bit! From sorting your own household recycling to making more thoughtful choices when shopping. We recommend using the GuppyFriend bag to wash your clothes in as both cottons and man-made materials shed fibres when they're washed. The bag acts as a barrier keeping the tiny fibres from going into the water system and polluting the ecosystem. Find out more about the GuppyFriend here.
London-based vlogger and blogger Emma Ross (@Mamalinauk) is an advocate for living and parenting slowly and sustainably. Her 3 boys, Jack, Sonny and Abe have put our sustainable swimwear to the test with an adventure to their local beach. See them making a splash in our fab Frugi Swimwear collection!
