Fishing nets. iQ-UV clothing for water sports consists of 78% recycled fishing nets. About ten percent of all plastic waste in the sea are the so-called ghost nets. Utilizing these fishing nets for iQ-UV products reduces their quantity and protects marine life from the life-threatening effects. In the metaphorical sense, with every iQ-UV shirt you remove a piece of plastic from the sea.

Each IQ-UV shirt reduces plastic waste by up to 40 tubes of sunscreen and saves thousands of litres of precious fresh water compared to cotton.
