I was only talking about this on the blog the other day! More companies are branching out in to more sustainable products and materials. This summer Frugi is join that too!
We have been testing out some of the new products from Frugi. The weather is warming up and holidays will be happening very soon too so it is time to get the kids some new swimwear as I imagine that they have out grown their sets from last year!
I have some water babies though so I have been hiring out a local pool to get them used to swimming regularly. Swimming has so many benefits and living near the sea, I want to make sure the kids are know what do around water and water safety.
The new Frugi swimwear is made using used plastics. Doing this stops so much waste ending up in landfill and in the oceans. It is an advanced process and it has a much lower carbon footprint than regular polyester.
Not only is the new range sustainable but the designs are bright and colourful. They are available in newborn to 10 years. The swimwear meets British standards for sun safety by providing a UPF 40+ rating, this protects from UVA and UVB rays.
As well as the swimwear, we have also been using the swimming nappies for Brody and the sunhats for Elsa, Cleo and Brody. Sunhats are essential for sunny days and they are reversible and just like the swimwear, bright and colourful!
The TotBot swimming nappies are available in 2 sizes. Every year 3 billion nappies are thrown away and Frugi is trying to cut that number down. Using swimming nappies helps lower that number and the materials used to make the nappies are also recycled plastics. TotBots come in 5 different designs, they are neoprene free and do up simply using velcro around your childs waist. TotBot reusable swimming nappies are priced at £10.95.
When it comes to the swimwear, Elsa and Cleo wanted matching so they both have the 2 piece reef tankini which is priced at £20 – £21 and Brody has the board shorts in the crocodile print. These are priced at £20 – £22.
All of these products are available from Frugi.
I would highly recommend Frugi swimwear. It is comfortable for the kids, it fits them well and it is available in a wide range of sizes. The bright colours are amazing for the pool. Brightly coloured swimwear is actually a safety feature as you can see your children in the water more clearly. The TotBot swimming nappies were used on Brody and they fit him very well in the bigger size and they kept everything in the nappy. We won’t be buying disposable swimming nappies again!
