Sustainability

In today's world, people are more aware than ever of the importance of being sustainable. Without change, there won't be a livable planet for future generations. We want to be part of that change, which is why sustainability is at the heart of everything we do.

  • Packaging

    To send the swimwear to you, we use boxes made of recycled paper. No trees have to be cut down for this. Plus, we seal the boxes with paper tape so you don't have to deal with separating tape and cardboard :)

  • Production

    Having our production mostly in Portugal means we keep CO2 emissions low from transportation. Besides that, companies in Europe have to comply with environmental and ethical regulations, ensuring workers are paid fair wages and work normal hours in safe environments.

Goals

Being an eco-conscious brand is so much more than just offering swimwear made with sustainable fabrics. There are lots of things around it that have to be considered as well. Our company is only getting started, we know we don’t have it all figured out yet. But we have made some great steps already and we will continue to improve!

Some things we are working on:
  • We are looking into an alternative material for our logo label, which is the only item in the shorts that is currently not made from a sustainable yarn but from virgin polyester.

  • Possibly the most important thing we want to work on is digging deeper into our supply chain to understand how our items are made, how they are dyed, and where the raw materials come from. With this information, we can optimize our supply chain and make it more sustainable. It is a difficult and slow process, especially as a small brand, but we are working on it!

  • We are looking for a mesh lining that is also 100% biodegradable. The options that we have found so far were not good enough, so we will keep looking and also keep an eye on new technologies and developments.

Greenspark

For every order we receive we donate to Plastic Bank® and Ripple Africa. We are able to do this with the help of Greenspark. Every order results in the removal of 5 plastic bottles from the ocean and offsets 5 kg of carbon. Below you will see the impact that we have made so far:
