Welcome to Legacy
We care deeply for the wellbeing of our planet and taking care of it the best we can. Our mission is to help clean the ocean of waste and repurpose that waste into beautiful recycled swimsuits. A portion of every purchase goes towards coral reef restoration with our friends at Mote Marine Lab in Sarasota, FL.
Below are the key components that make Legacy who we are!
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 donating a portion of every purchase to help Coral Reef Restoration!
