A young businesswoman started her swimwear company when she was just 15-years-old.
Brittney Kevric, now 20, created bikinis by using recycled plastic bottles.
Her environmentally-friendly project took the waste from the world’s oceans and used them for something practical.
While juggling her jobs as a cheerleader and receptionist, the entrepreneur worked to ensure the fabric feels soft and not plasticky.
She also worked to create funky patterns for her cossies – and they soon reeled the customers in.
After years of hard graft, the Australian woman is now raking in hundreds every week.
In an interview with news.com.au, Brittany said: “I worked Saturday, Sundays and during the week at my local cafe to save extra money, so I didn’t really get to socialise on weekends unless it was after work.
“I’d take any shift possible.”
After saving more than £5,000 from waitressing, the savvy teen channelled as much as she could into her business.
She used the funds to bulk order products, create a website and secure the domain name “Kornati Swim”.
Creating a logo and sorting storage were also costly.
The investment, paired with a lot of hard work, has helped Brittney achieve her dreams.
Her brand now has thousands of followers on Instagram – and she can earn close to £900 a week when business is good.
The entrepreneur said: “In the early days I would go weeks, even months, without making a single cent.
“It was extremely hard and upsetting, but I kept pushing to reach my goals.
“Now I roughly make $500 a week. I earned $1700 just last week as one of my good weeks.”
