An Adventure Through Bali With Summerlove Swimwear

Over the last few weeks I have been adventuring in Bali, hitting some incredible spots in Seminyak, Canguu, Uluwatu and Ubud. During my trip I partnered with my favourite eco bikini brand Summerlove Swimwear, designed by my great friend and We Are Travel Girls co-founder Vanessa Rivers.

Together we will be announcing a Bestie Bikini Giveaway over on We Are Travel Girls and Summerlove Swimwear. To find out how you can win one of these gorgeous bikinis for you and a friend, make sure to follow our social media pages for the announcement over the next few days!

Summerlove bikinis are manufactured in California and made with ECONYL®, a 100% recycled polyamide fiber that’s made from pre and post-consumer materials such as discarded fishing nets recovered by the Healthy Seas initiative.

Each year, around 640,000 tonnes of fishing gear is lost or left in the ocean. Abandoned fishing nets, known as ‘ghost nets’, are usually lost in storms, snagged on reefs or tangled when boats operate in crowded waters. This gear traps, injures, and kills thousands of sea animals every year. But the Healthy Seas Initiative has given these nets a second life.

Working with local fishermen, they retrieve the nets and instead of sending them to a landfill, they partner with a textiles company who use them to produce a recycled nylon called ECONYL®. This recycled material is then used to make a number of products like Summerlove Bikinis. If you want to learn more, please watch this video and if you are touched by the story you can donate to Healthy Seas non-profit charity here.
