The Billy Eco15 Recycled Drybag Tow Float is the most eco-friendly tow float on the market.
The Billy Eco15 Drybag Float is ultralight, has optimal streamlining, and is designed to be better for the environment.
The Billy Eco15 is the first float to use bio-degradable TPU and recycled plastic (RPET) this is much more eco-friendly and can help reduce the impact on landfills.
Typically Swim Tow Floats have been made with PVC applied to nylon (plastic), the Billy Eco range uses Biodegradable TPU a much more environmentally friendly alternative to PVC, which contains toxic chemicals. TPU is very durable and resistant to abrasion, it is also tear and puncture-resistant making it an ideal material for a swim float.
The Eco15 Drybag features a waterproof compartment that is separate from the air chamber. This means the swimmer can take their essential items such as keys or spare goggles with them whilst in the water.
Ultralight and Bright
The Eco15 is made from ultralight material yet also very durable, it’s bright orange to increase the visibility and safety of the swimmer in the water.
All Puffin floats are designed with Optimised Streamlining where the float’s shape, valve position, tow attachment point, and direction of tow are all designed to reduce drag.
The drybag floats behind the swimmer and does not interfere with the swimmers’ stroke.
The Eco15 Drybag is easy to use, the float has an adjustable leash attached to it, this leash then simply threads onto the waist belt.
Puffin floats are designed by swim safety experts Swim the Lakes.
Spare Waist Belts are available. Each waist belt is 127cm max length and 2 can be joined together if a longer belt is required.
NB: We recommend placing electronic items inside a waterproof bag before placing them inside the Eco15 drybag. The Billy Eco15 is not a lifesaving device and is for use by competent swimmers. It is not designed to be submerged.
It’s made with Biodegradable TPU an advanced material that is much more environmentally friendly in its manufacture and management than PVC, the production and disposal of which results in the release of toxic, chlorine-based chemicals.
Most plastic bottles and food containers are made of PET plastic. Recycling and reusing PET helps to reduce land-fill and the production of more plastic. The PET plastic recycled in these floats may be from pre or post-consumer waste.
The Billy Eco15 Recycled tow float is the UK’s first Eco-friendly float made from PVC-free material and recycled plastic (RPET).
