SUSTAINABILITY

At NAVY RAY, we create beautiful designs with flawless fits that inspire women to feel confident and beautiful. And we do that with a commitment to the environment. We put eco-consciousness at the heart of everything we do, from using mostly recycled textiles to packaging materials.
​FABRIC
Our swimwear fabric is made with 78% ECONYL® regenerated nylon. By using fibre made of pre and post-consumer waste such as fishing nets, fabric scraps, and carpet fluff, we slow down the production of new plastic. 
ECONYL® regenerated nylon has the same qualities of regular nylon but can be recycled, recreated, and remolded again and again. This means garment manufacture could potentially become a closed-loop system where nylon could forever be reused and recycled! All ECONYL® yarns have the STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® certificate, class I (products for babies) to prove the maximum safety of products
PRODUCTION
We produce locally. Our pieces are designed and manufactured in Toronto, Canada. Using local workers allows us to be involved in the whole production process as well as ensure that there's the least possible waste in materials. We have a close relationship with our workers and we make sure that they are ethically treated and paid. This close relationship help us ensure the most high quality items are produced without compromising work ethics.

 

PACKAGING
We research and source the most sustainable materials we can find and we never use more than needed. All of our swimsuits come in a flap and seal bag made from plant-based pla and certified compostable.  Durable and tamper resistant, they are easy to recycle. There is no plastic involved in the process, even when shipping.
FOR THE OCEANS
We aim not only to reduce our impact but also use our voice to raise awareness for the beauty and fragility of our oceans.  We donate 3% of our profits to "Parley for the Oceans" an environmental organization and global collaboration network. Visit www.parley.tv to learn more.​​
