PROJECT IN THIS TOGETHER
When faced with adversity we, at AZYÄ Swim, lean in. We have launched an initiative to keep our community socially connected whilst we practice physical distancing. AZYÄ Swim are sending interested members of the community who are self-isolating with an AZYÄ Swim Face Mask Kit, including necessary instructions and resources needed to make beautiful face masks.
Given the current shortage of masks in Australia, as a result of panic buying in the midst of the COVID-19 Pandemic, AZYÄ Swim’s ‘Project In This Together’ was formed. “Community is one of the pillars of AZYÄ Swim; therefore, community needed to be central to our project. We wanted to facilitate community engagement and embrace our collective power. This is where our real strength lies - in us together” stated Fatima and Marina, Co-founders of AZYÄ Swim.
All of AZYÄ Swim’s face masks will be made from the same premium and sustainable fabric (made using regenerated ECONYL® yarn) that is used to make their swimwear. “We wanted to maintain our commitment to sustainable fashion. Now, more than ever, we need to care for the Earth which is the home of our future generations” added Fatima and Marina.
There have been 760 Face Masks pledged to-date. These sustainable masks will be donated to essential workers within our community. Should you have any recommendations on community groups who are in need of these beautiful masks please email us your suggestions at firstname.lastname@example.org
