About Amity Blue

Made with Recycled Plastic Bottles
Creating A Brighter Future

The name Amity Blue means Friends of The Ocean.

It’s a name that encompasses who we are and why we get out of bed every morning. After spending a life by the beach, myself and my husband have seen a frightening amount of plastic rubbish accumulate in our oceans and we wanted to do something about it.

Each year more than 8 million tonnes of plastics are dumped into the sea. To put that into perspective, it’s like dumping a garbage truck full of plastic into the ocean every minute for every day of every year.

We have the ability to change the way we dispose of our rubbish right now.

Dumping is a thing of the past - recycle and re-use is our future and Amity Blue is proud to be part of this exciting movement.
After many months of research, we found an amazing product - sand-resistant beach towels made from a fabric that is 80% recycled plastic bottles. It just made sense. The towels offer so many benefits. They are antimicrobial, odour free, ultra-absorbent, quick-drying, and super compact. It is a fantastic opportunity to create a beautiful, quality product that is also environmentally friendly.

We are passionate about delivering a luxurious high-end product that uses waste plastics. Recycling and reusing are our future and Amity Blue is now proud to offer a selection of beautiful towels in varied sizes, patterns, and indigenous designs.

Over the past year or so more than 140,000 water bottles were intercepted and recycled to create our range of quality towels.We want to double that figure in 2022 and then double it again until plastic water bottles become their own threatened species.
We are in the process of expanding our range and new ideas are always presenting themselves.

We look forward to a bright and exciting 2022.

Thanks for being part of the change

The Process

How They Are Made

Our towels are designed in Australia and manufactured offshore. We use a yarn called Repreve that was invented by Unifi, a company based in North Carolina in the United States. Whenever you see the Repreve logo you can rest assured that these products contain recycled plastic bottles.

We care about you and our planet. It's time to be the difference, it's time to BE THE CHANGE!

Our products are made from a yarn called Repreve.

Put simply, Repreve is made by breaking down recycled plastic bottles and turning them into thread. This thread is then made into the fabric used to make our products. Although an involved process, it is far cleaner than using natural resources, and to date, over 23 Billion plastic bottles have been turned into materials. In fact, Repreve is now manufactured in several major textile-producing locations around the world. Using this cutting-edge technology means we reduce waste with every product we make.

Look for the Repreve tag whenever you shop and know that you are making a difference.

Are Amity Blue towels a healthier option than cotton?

Yes! Our towels are antimicrobial which means they kill or slow the spread of bacteria, odours, viruses, and germs. This makes them ideal for using in your home, at the gym, yoga studio, the pool, boat, absolutely anywhere.

How long do the towels last?

Our towels are long lasting and made to the highest standards using 390gsm fabric and double stitched seams. This makes them one of the highest quality towels on the market. We are confident that your towels will outlive any regular towel and you will get many years of enjoyment from them.

How do I clean my beach towel?

Our towels are so easy to clean, a cold machine wash is all that’s required. They will dry on the clothesline in half the time of an average towel and we’ve added a hang tag to easily hang up your towel on a hook if you can’t get to a line.

Where are Amity Blue towels made?

Our towels are designed in Australia and manufactured offshore. We use a yarn called Repreve that was invented by Unifi a company based in North Carolina in the United States. Whenever you see the Repreve logo you can rest assured that your products contain recycled plastic bottles.

Can you put Amity Blue towels in the Dryer?

Our towels dry in half the time of a regular towel. Hanging them on the clothesline to dry is all that’s required. We do not recommend putting them in the dryer.

What are sand free towels made of?

Our towels are a waffle weave microfiber. We use 80% recycled plastic and 20% polyamide to make them. The fibres of our fabric are so fine and loop free that sand cannot get caught in them and falls straight off.

How absorbent are sand free towels?

Our sand free towels are super absorbent and hold three times their weight in water.

We love our customers, and they love us

What our customers say

“Love these towels. Great for our environment and a wonderful reuse of materials. Really love the way they are light and sand free!”

Joseph M Corbin

“Love these towels! They are super absorbent and I love that I can drive home after a surf with one wrapped around my waist and the car seat stays dry, which doesn’t happen with normal towels. Sand flicks off even when it’s wet and they dry out so quickly ready for the next use. I find I don’t need to wash them as often too as they dry quickly and stay fresh smelling. They fold up much smaller in my bag, so great when carting a heap of kids stuff to the beach. Really such a good investment and worth every cent. And they look awesome too, I want one in every colour!”

Sharon Groves

“Took my new Amity Blue towels on a multi day scuba dive trip! Compact & super absorbent dry off quick ready for the next day of fun! Relaxing on the beach after a great day one shake & the sand is gone! Hard to believe they are made from recycled plastic bottles saving the planet.”
