Black Circularity Top

Educational resources & donation included with every purchase. Learn more.

A racerback crop top with a seamless, reversible design and mid-level support. Versatile and multifunctional for use as a swim top, yoga top, workout sports bra, water sports top, or just for all-day comfort.

Made from post-consumer bottles AND old textiles through our Take-Back Program. We collect your old clothes, put them in a wood chipper (joking…kinda), and convert them into fiber, then fabric, then back into brand new clothing. Because textile waste comes in different colors, the resulting recycled fiber ends up looking brown, like a child finger-painting with ALL the colors at once kind of brown. Yuk! To fix this mess, the fibers are dyed black during the recycling process.

    1. Seamless, reversible design for versatility and comfort
    2. Mid level support- wear for diving, yoga, swimming, lifting, surfing, etc.
    3. Fibers mechanically engineered for quick dry, moisture wicking and breathability

Advocate Apparel Inspired by textile recycling

According to the EPA, 87% of apparel textiles are not recycled annually in the United States, meaning millions of tons of old clothes are piled into landfills every year. While recycling infrastructure exists for things like plastic bottles and aluminum cans, textile recycling is far less developed and accessible. This is a missed opportunity because the raw materials within some kinds of clothing (like ours!) can be used to create entirely new fabric, as long as it’s done carefully. By purchasing products made from recycled textiles, you are financially supporting the infrastructure that enables recycling to happen and signaling to manufacturers that you value circularity.

In the world of environmentally responsible fabrics, we think there are two clear leaders from an end-of-life perspective: those that are entirely made from natural fibers, and those made entirely of synthetic fibers. 100% natural fabrics like organic cotton are beneficial because they are biodegradable and recyclable, while 100% synthetic fabrics are beneficial because they are recyclable. Fabrics that blend natural and synthetic fibers together are not currently biodegradable or recyclable with today’s technology, which is why we don’t make them.

Great swim bra!

I got this to go with some swim leggings under my scuba wetsuit. Good quality. Tight and supportive.

Comfy

It’s super comfy, as described in the description, larger busts aren’t going to be jogging in this, but it’s great for swimming.

Great Quality

I love the feeling of the material and the fit style. I'm a shorter person so it's a tad bit long but I don't mind at all! Thanks for the awesome quality :)
