Welcome to Legacy
Welcome to the Legacy Family! Every bikini you buy is helping to:
SAVE OUR PLANET: clean up the fishing nets left behind that are fatal to marine life
BE ETHICAL: we believe that how your suit is made is just as important as what it is made of. Our manufacturer ensures fair wages, health insurance, paid OT for working over 40 hours, as well as opportunities for employees to grow.
LESSEN WASTE: every detail from using paper hygiene liners instead of plastic, to ensuring all of our packaging is biodegradable, to using recycled materials as fabrics was done to ensure we are doing right by the planet
USE A MORE ECO- FRIENDLY PRODUCTION OF FABRICS: ECONYL uses less water and nitrous oxide emissions than creation of virgin fabrics
REPURPOSE: Turn discarded plastics into fashion
GIVE BACK: Coral reefs are home to a quarter(!!!) of all marine life and give over 500 million people a source or protection from erosion, a source of income and food. However the reefs are in danger due to climate change, over fishing and pollution. That is why we are donationg a portion of every purchase to help Coral Reef Restoration!
Turning Fishing Nets into Fashion
Each year thousands of marine animals become tangled in discarded fishing nets and die. In order to combat this Legacy Swimwear is created with recycled ocean waste (i.e bottles, fishing nets, etc.). The plastic pollutants are removed from the ocean then regenerated into plastic chips which are transformed into our ECONYL fabric. This fabric is then used to make your new swimsuit!
