Better for the planet

Elsi is the very first Finnish swimwear company to use revolutionary fabric that supports the removal of marine debris from our oceans. Our swimwear fabric starts its journey as fishing nets, carpet flooring, fabric scraps and plastic from landfills and oceans all over the world. This waste is collected through different initiatives and projects managed by the Healthy Seas organisation.

After a regeneration and purification process the nylon waste is recycled right back to its original purity: it’s not just as good as new, but better for our planet. By regenerating waste and not using any virgin materials we are saving finite resources and energy whilst also reducing carbon emissions.


Elsi is always striving to improve to be more ethically responsible in all stages of our business. We will always make sure that all parties we work with align with our core values of sustainable and ethical practices. This has been of paramount importance to us since our inception and we;ll make sure to continue to better our practices.
