Fabrics, packaging, and logistics
Repreve and TopGreen
All of our swimwear is made from Repreve and TopGreen fabrics that are made from recycled plastic bottles. Although spandex needs to be added for stretch, all of our cossies are 85% recycled PET and our boardies are 90%.
Collectively, these companies have recycled over 40 billion plastic bottles (and counting) and prevented them from entering our oceans and landfills.

Recycled Card, Hemp and Cornstarch
All of our hang tags are made from recycled card and attached with hemp strings - no (plastic) strings attached.
Furthermore, our postage bags are made from cornstarch and are 100% biodegradable. Bury yours in soil and see it compost fully in 180 days!
Production & Logistics
Small Batches, Minimal Waste
All of our swimwear is produced in small batches in fantastic working standards. We do not throw away any unsold items ever, and we do not work to the fast pace of fashion that has led to a crisis of overproduction and waste.
We have come up with a system to eliminate 80% of plastic used in the logistics process, and are working hard to make that 100% by the time of our next delivery.
Education and Community
As part of our aim to educate people about the impact of single-use plastics on the environment, we organise beach cleanup events. This allows for people to experience firsthand just how much plastic is affecting our eco-systems, as well as effectively removing it from the premesis.
