A few weeks ago Animal launched their eco-friendly summer collection. 400 new sustainable products for Summer 2021, including classic Organic Cotton T-shirts and Hoodies, and Recycled Rash Vests.
Animal® – Brand’s History
Outdoor retailer Mountain Warehouse acquired the brand earlier this year from previous owners. The new Animal in-house design team have taken inspiration from Animal’s board sports heritage to create a range of authentic, trend-led, and most importantly, eco-friendly products. The Spring/Summer 2021 collection includes over 400 products across categories including men’s, women’s, kids-wear, accessories, and footwear.
The relaunch of Animal comes at a time where appreciation for the environment is at an all-time high, with lockdown encouraging the public to take solace and inspiration from the outdoors. As part of Animal UK’s evolution, the brand has embarked on a bid to become kinder to the planet, starting by using responsibly resourced materials across the range wherever possible and using more sustainable packaging.
Featured in the range are well-established sustainable fabric partners such as ECONYL® regenerated nylon, TENCEL™ branded lyocell fibers and LENZING™ ECOVERO™ branded viscose fibres, as well as the use of Organic Cotton. Animal UK has also partnered with reGAIN, who help divert product from landfill and contribute to a circular environmental retail model.
The new eco-friendly summer collection
The range features some of Animal’s historic bestsellers with an environmentally friendly upgrade such as flip flops, slogan tees, and hoodies, alongside a wide range of new and exciting lines. Sizes range from 6 – 20 for womenswear, XS to XXL in menswear and 5-6 to 13 years for kids-wear. All products will have a 365 day guarantee, promising to deliver on product quality and last the ride.
Mark Neale, Founder of Mountain Warehouse says: “We are delighted to welcome Animal to the Mountain Warehouse family. My surfing days may be over, but I still have a few classic Animal pieces from the brand’s heyday. We are now hugely excited about introducing Animal to a new generation of enthusiasts and I’m sure that our use of recycled and organic fabrics will appeal to today’s conscientious consumer.”
This year we as many others will also not be heading abroad for a beach holiday because of the current uncertainty of the travelling situation. Maybe that is all happening for a reason to explore the UK more, and hopefully the weather will be on our side as it has been for the past few super hot days.
When Animal® have launched their new eco-friendly summer collection, I have been offered to review a few pieces. I could not resist to add this absolutely stunning tie dye Riviera Bikini Top & Bottoms to my summer wardrobe! I have actually never order bikini online as usually struggle with the sizes, but was very pleased that the size 12 both bottoms and top fit me perfectly. Love the feel of the recycled fabric and the print looks stunning on my tanned skin. Shame I cannot rock this set on a beach or by the pool in Spain, but there is always next year!
- Composition – 80% Recycled Nylon 20% Elastane
- Removable Cups – For adjustable shaping and comfort
- Quick Drying – Thanks to the fabric composition, water dries quickly making it great for holiday wear and washing
- Quality Print – Our high quality print will not peel or fade after wear and washing
- Adjustable Fit – Adjustable cuffs, hood and hem for a great fit
My daughter really likes the Jenna Organic Cotton Bottoms, and enjoys wearing them while “chilling” in our swing chair in the garden.
