The brand new EcoSplash collection is now available on our website, we hope you will love it as much as we do!
These mid-weight, super waterproof and versatile jackets made using recycled fabrics are perfect for all kinds of outdoor activities come rain or shine. Our new EcoSplash jacket is available in two brilliant, vibrant prints – Mustard Raindrop and Teal. It is fully waterproof (up to 5,000mm which makes it perfect for all-day play in moderate to heavy rain), breathable (up to 3,000gm2) and offers fantastic protection from sudden downpours without overheating. Thanks to its taped seams and secure hood, every drop of rain is kept out of this jacket. Good news – the zips are waterproof, too! The jacket is fleece-lined for added softness and super cosy. We have also added soft Sherpa lining to the hood to make sure young explorers stay warm on colder days. Our EcoSplash jacket is machine washable (we thought about busy parents, too) and has reflective print and zip pulls for better visibility when it gets dark outside. Plus, it is unisex and designed to be passed on to younger siblings and friends.
The new EcoSplash puddlesuit crafted from recycled fabrics is available in two fun and bright prints – Red Raindrop and Teal (a perfect match to our EcoSplash jackets!). It is made to protect little adventurers from the elements throughout spring and autumn. Just like the jackets, our all-in-ones are fleece-lined, fully waterproof (up to 5,000mm) and breathable (up to 3,000gm2), with taped seams, extra long, waterproof zips and contrast elasticated binding to finish the sleeves, hood and hem. They are made from flexible fabric for easy movement. We have also added practical fold over hand warmers and removable feet for 0 to 12-month-olds as well as elasticated cuffs and adjustable stirrups for the bigger explorers from 12 months up to 6 years old. Our puddlesuits are machine washable (and so easy to clean before the next outdoor adventure) with reflective print and zip pulls for better visibility on dark, gloomy afternoons. Plus, they are unisex and can be easily passed down to younger siblings and friends.
Our reliable, fleece-lined EcoSplash trousers made using recycled fabrics are super waterproof (up to 5,000mm) and breathable (up to 3,000gm2). They are designed to keep the cold wind outside, and provide an additional layer of toastiness. Thanks to their comfortable, elasticated waist, they are easy to take on and off and perfect to tumble around in all day long. We have added elasticated cuffs for extra dryness and waterproof protection. Our EcoSplash trousers are machine washable and perfect for all types of outdoor adventures, whatever the weather.
4) EcoSplash jackets and puddlesuits in Blue Raindrop are back!
Good news – our popular, best-selling blue raindrop EcoSplash jacket and puddlesuit from our last year’s EcoSplash collection are now back in stock! Much loved by our Customers, these super protective waterproofs will brighten up a rainy day thanks to their lovely raindrop print (it always makes us want to jump in puddles!).
How do we turn plastic bottles into lovely waterproof outerwear
Our EcoSplash range is made from used plastic bottles (good to know: one jacket is made from around 20 recycled plastic bottles!) We reduce used plastic to thread form which is woven into our brilliant, recyclable and fully waterproof outerwear for the bold, young explorers.
So how is our EcoSplash range made? Plastic bottles are gathered up and compressed at the recycling centre and sent to a fabric mill. The clean, clear plastic flecks are sent through hot pipes to melt down and create thread. The thread is then turned into fabric used to make our EcoSplash collection. The process is certified by Oekotex to make sure it complies with stringent environmental standards.
