For the production of ECONYL® yarn, old fishing nets rescued from the ocean, together with other pre-and post-consumer nylon waste are transformed into ECONYL® raw material which performs and looks exactly the same as standard nylon. Then, an Italian Company makes an elastic fabric using this yarn. The technical weave produces a fabric with natural density that together with the addition of Xtra Life Lycra® creates an extremely soft, durable and UV resistant swimwear fabric.
SunTrooper® commitment to minimal waste
Your SunTrooper® UPF50+ swimwear will arrive packaged in a reusable swimwear bag. Since January 2019 we use compostible recycled cardboard boxes for all deliveries.
Shipping of our SunTrooper® products is PLASTIC FREE.
In Germany, Europe and worldwide, so much packaging waste is produced as never before. We want to work against it and do our part to prevent waste and reduce plastic. For this reason, we have tried to reduce the amount of packaging waste generated during shipping to a minimum. We use the fabric left-overs from production to create additional accessories, like the Scrunchie and creating our new reusauble swimwear bag, for packaging, so eliminating the need for all plastic.

Why is Ultra Violet UV Sun Protection so important for your child:
"The rise in the incidence of skin cancers over the past decades is strongly related to increasingly popular outdoor activities and recreational exposure. Overexposure to sunlight is widely accepted as the underlying cause for harmful effects on the skin, eye and immune system. Experts believe that four out of five cases of skin cancer could be prevented, as UV damage is mostly avoidable.
UPF = Ultraviolet Protection Factor
