Say hello to our new EcoSplash Collection!July 2, 2018 • Outdoor Ideas
Our new EcoSplash collection is here! Discover these super practical, lightweight jackets and splashsuits in bright prints. They are made from recycled plastic bottles so they’re good for the planet, too.
The lovely new jackets and splashsuits in our EcoSplash range are crafted from cutting edge recycled plastic. They are not only environmentally friendly but also 100% waterproof, lightweight but toasty when needed, equipped with soft fleece lining and cosy Sherpa hoods. We think they make a super practical addition to any little adventurer’s wardrobe and can be worn from spring all the way to autumn. They are also great for layering for the chillier days.
The brand new EcoSplash collection is now available on our website, we hope you’ll like it!
1) EcoSplash fleece lined jacket (£45)
Our new EcoSplash jacket is available in two brilliant colourways – Navy/Red Stripe and Baltic Interstellar. It’s fully waterproof (up to 5000mm) and breathable (up to 3000gm2). Thanks to its practical taped seams, every drop of rain is kept out of this jacket. Good news – the zips are waterproof too! The jacket is fleece-lined for added softnedd, plus, we’ve also added cosy Sherpa lining to the hood to make sure young explorers stay snuggly and cosy! Our Ecosplash jacket is machine washable (we thought about busy mums, too) and has reflective print and zip pulls for better visibility.

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 80 recycled plastic bottles!) We reduce used plastic to thread form which is woven into our brilliant, recyclable and 100% 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.
