O’Neill Eco-Friendly Surfwear Launch
Californian lifestyle brand O’Neill launches its first eco-friendly women’s activewear line,
O’Neill Active, with an extensive collection made from recycled beach plastics. Featuring sports bras, shorts, leggings, vests and swimwear, the new line is made from high performance eco-threads by Bionic. Priced between £29.99 – £79.99, the collection will be available online from mid-March at www.oneill.com
Exploring new dimensions and injecting additional product categories, O’Neill Active blends style and function. Forming an integral part of the brands new global initiative, O’Neill Blue – Our Ocean Mission, to produce sustainable surfwear, the new range combines technical features and performance materials. Working alongside New York startup Bionic, the producers of durable and adaptable threads developed from recycled plastic bottles, O’Neill has created a multifunctional collection that takes the wearer from land to water.
With a focus on performance across a variety of disciplines including running, yoga, surfing and stand up paddle boarding, O’Neill Active merges technical properties such as UV protection, quick-drying and wicking. Complementing the high performance styling, the colour palette is popped with pinks, greens and purple, giving the collection a bright, fashionable feel.
Key pieces in the range include the flattering zip-up one-piece, slim-fit leggings, lightweight shorts, mesh-insert bra top, as well as the reversible top and matching bottoms.
ACTIVE REVERSIBLE TOP
Ready for summer, the O’Neill Active Reversible Top is the perfect fit for an on-the-go lifestyle. Taking the wearer from a morning yoga class, to a day on the beach, this versatile piece benefits from UV 50 and an unreasonably fast drying time thanks to O’Neill Hyperdry technology.

Our Ocean Mission launched back 2016 in an effort to help reduce the estimated 12 million tons of plastic flooding the world’s seas. Despite being a drop in the ocean when it comes to eliminating marine litter, O’Neill hopes the upcycling-plastic practice will inspire consumers and others in the surf industry to take another step toward bringing about real change for the planet.
