We are a sportswear brand crafted from recycled plastic and other sustainable fabrics. We belive in making clothes that are as good for you as they are for the planet.
WHO ARE WE
“We both grew up by the coast on the north side of Dublin. We started Awave in the middle of the pandemic. There was a lot of bad news at the time, and we wanted to do something positive. We both live in activewear but we couldn’t find any brands that were producing without doing damage.
Some were heading towards sustainability, but we wanted to go way beyond that. To be regenerative.”
WHY WE DO IT
Every minute that passes, a million plastic bottles are sold. Most end up in landfills, incinerators and worst of all, in our oceans. Each AWAVE garment takes plastic out of circulation and puts profits back into cleaning our oceans.
It won't fix the problem overnight, but it will show the way, and be part of a change we all want to see.
To save our future, we need a wave of change
- massive change that starts with us.
We're not just a clothing company — we're a people company. We care about who wears our products. And we care about the people who make them, too.
We believe in a world where everyone can find great style and feel good about what they're wearing, and we know you do too. That's why we work hard to ensure that our products are made by people who are treated well and paid fairly. Our manufacturers are based in Portugal, China and Indonesia who help us source and craft our range with sustainable materials.
We’re going beyond sustainability. We want to be regenerative and we want to keep score. That’s why we’re ultra transparent with the impact each piece of clothing makes on our environment. And just to be clear, we mean positive impact. We’ve built responsible supply chains, sourced ethically made fabrics using sustainable and regenerative raw materials and we back it up with transparent, meaningful data. We partnered with BCome who provide us with an analysis on our products.
We're so excited and proud to partner with Ocean Co, an incredible organization that is on the front lines of protecting our oceans from plastic pollution.
The ocean is a beautiful, vast place. It's home to an abundance of life and experiences, and it connects us all.
But the ocean is also in trouble. Over 8 million tons of plastic enters our oceans every year—and that number is growing at an alarming rate. It's not just a problem for the future, it's a problem now.
When you buy an Awave product, you're contributing to this fight and helping create a wave of change in our world.
