ETHICAL & ECO MANUFACTURING
FOR PEOPLE & PLANET
We take this seriously.
We believe in transparency, exceeding minimum labour standards and adding value to our community & environment.
We Clean Up Our Oceans
With every bikini you make with us, BALI SWIM helps clean up our oceans.
10 cents from every bikini made with us supports the work of Bali’s ROLE Foundation. This contribution comes entirely from our own profits.
ROLE Foundation run a zero waste facility and environmental development programs in Bali. Their vision supports zero waste to oceans, sustainable businesses for coastal communities, and women’s business education and development.
They also regularly educate our staff on how to keep the environment in mind, best doing waste management and so on. Together we also succeeded in banning the plastic water bottles!
In 2019 Bali Swim is also the main sponsor for ROLE's 'Zero Waste to Oceans Conference'. You can read more about that here.
If you are visiting Bali we definitely recommend a visit!
Some of our clients are also matching our donation to the ROLE foundation. We think this is a fabulous idea.
Either way - choosing to work with us results in donation towards the goal of zero ocean waste and healthy oceans.
We Give You the Best Eco Options
The majority of our swim products are made using recycled fabrics from ECONYL® yarns (used in Italian Carvico or Jersey Lomellina fabrics) or American REPREVE®. How the recycling works is shown in the top image.
Aside fabrics we make all fabric prints using eco-ink, we offer paper hygiene liners instead of plastic, use bio-degradable packaging and have other options to make your swim line completely sustainable.
On our end internally we also take further measures. Any of our fabric waste is recycled again externally. We minimise use of single-serving and plastics at our premises, all staff are given free metal water bottles, and as mentioned above we educate staff about waste management at work and home.
