We chatted with Hannah Patten, co-founder of the eco-friendly bikini line, Hülya Swim. As someone who basically lives in her two-pieces year round, Hannah breaks down the different uses for her suits that don't involve water.
A new week of my series #WCW is back with my friend, entrepreneur Hannah S. Patten of Hülya Swim! I’ve known Hannah for a really long time and watching her entrepreneurial journey progress has been not only inspiring but exciting for me to watch. I asked Hannah 5 questions about what launching her recyclable swimwear line Hülya has been and how she plans to run the company while in college!
She was wrapping up a successful week at the Kentucky National Horse Show, where she won nearly every class she entered. Hannah described her current line of show jumpers as some of the best horses she’d ever had the chance to compete in her lifetime. But as she sat on her tack trunk in the barn aisle, looking at her horse standing in the crossties, she decided this show would be her last.

Today we’d like to introduce you to Hannah Patten and Christina Firestone.
Hulya Swim stands for a new, innovative and eco-friendly swimwear brand, which uses a high tech recycled fabric made out of recycled ghost nets and other ocean debris. Hannah Patten and Christina Firestone, the founders, have produced a high-quality swim product in an eco-friendly manner.
Hannah and Christina believe that there is still time to make a difference, but we have to act now to make a difference. They believe in a cleaner and more stable ocean.
Hannah connects with Lou Diamond on Thrive LOUD and shares how Hülya is cleaning the ocean one bikini at a time.
"Don’t be too hard on yourself when things don’t go well: I have a really bad habit of overreacting and overthinking situations and when things go south I tend to blame myself for what went wrong. But, in reality most of the things that don’t go my way are completely out of my control which is totally okay and I just have to find ways to accept and understand that."
Hannah Patten and Christina Firestone founded Hulya Swim, which recycles sea trash into swimsuits.
Hannah and Christina joined Liam Martin on CBSN Boston to discuss their company.
