Nylon waste, otherwise polluting the Earth, is transformed into ECONYL® regenerated nylon. It’s exactly the same as brand new nylon and can be recycled, recreated and remolded again and again. That means you can create new products and buy new products without having to use new resources.
With the release of our first product utilizing recycled nylon fishing nets over a decade ago, Fishpond made a promise to build a better tomorrow for the environment. On our 20th anniversary, that meant continuing to search for alternatives in an effort to develop new products without using new resources. For this reason, we decided to use ECONYL® yarn, a 100% regenerated nylon fiber made from nylon waste otherwise polluting the Earth, like fishing nets, fabric scraps, carpet flooring and industrial plastic rescued from all over the world. By choosing to integrate ECONYL® regenerated nylon into our product line, we are redefining the way resources are consumed in the production of our gear. Together with our line of Cyclepond and NewStream recycled fabrics, we continue to measure the success of our business by the degree to which we create positive change for the future of the environment. This is not the end of the journey, just a step along the way.
