CapeCali just launched Eco-Tails!

Exactly how that sounds, CapeCali mermaid tails are now made of eco-friendly fabric! Let’s take you on our journey into creating this exciting new collection!


CapeCali launched their first mermaid tails and matching divewear in 2020, in the middle of the pandemic crisis that still gives us goosebumps just thinking about it! We thought “this is the MERFECT time to make tails” as a way to add more magic to our audience and our customers in such a difficult time. We chose the Mahina Monofin to accompany our tails because of its sustainability and power. Made of recycled rubber, our monofins sport a beautiful ample mermaid-style shape which helps us avoid using a plastic casing or inserts to maintain the tail’s shape. As an ocean-inspired brand since its beginning in 2018, CapeCali was already on the way to a more sustainable mermaid brand. Now, in 2022, we are launching Eco-Tails, which includes our mermaid tails (SirenaTails & DiveTails) made out of recycled materials! We are so tail-flipping excited to make this happen! But how does it work?


The process involves transforming plastic bottles that have been recycled into certifiable, traceable, high-performance yarn using sustainable technology to collect, decontaminate and transform this plastic waste into fabric. This process uses less carbon and non-toxic products. It reduces global warming potential compared to conventional virgin polyester. Humans use about 1.2 million plastic bottles per minute and only 56% are recycled. So thank you to those who recycle; and those who do not…please do! It is because of this planet-conscious mindset we are able to reuse and repurpose our waste and create sustainable beautiful art, sport and fashion items, rather than it ending up in our landfills or our oceans.
