Our company was founded in 2019 with a vision to make a sustainable athletic line made from recycled material, with a dual-purpose mission of raising awareness and funding for our oceans.
SEAAV Athletics started with our founder Mckenna Haz combining her love for the ocean and passion for athletics. Living on an island her entire life she's grown up by the sea. Unfortunately, our single use plastic pollution problem is ever growing, and our beaches are filling up with waste. She thought, “How cool would it be to up-cycle recycled bottles into something functional?” This is where the idea of SEAAV Athletics formed.
We currently sell women’s leggings, sports bra tops, and tank tops with recycled plastic bottles spun into our apparel. Our first collection of designs are on trend, butter soft, moisture wicking, and have multiple color options.
In addition, with every purchase, through ocean clean up, one pound of waste will be collected from the ocean. #makewavesnotwaste
How do you turn recycled plastic bottles into athletic apparel?
Almost all activewear is made from plastic. We choose to make our athletic apparel with materials that would typically add to the single-use plastic problem. We take recycled plastic water bottles and crush them into flake, chip and then fibre. This fibre is spun into a soft, recycled yarn that diverts plastic bottles from landfills and is instead re-purposed into SEAAV apparel.
How do you ship sustainably?
We use the company Noissue. "Out with the old and in with the new. The perfect alternative to plastic poly mailer bags is here, and it's completely compostable. Our 100% Compostable Mailer is a great step towards sustainable packaging, and can be composted both at home and commercially. Break it down with us."
