SUSTAINABILITY

WHAT WE CARE ABOUT

______________

We all love to be in the ocean. We as surfers and outdoorsy people appreciate and enjoy the raw beauty of nature. We as a brand put goods related to our passion on the market. Therefore it’s self-evident that we carry responsibility to protect what we love in every possible way:

CO2 NEUTRAL!

We offset our CO2 emissions from all kinds of transportation, all shipments, and running our warehouse and devices. Calcs and certificates will be published soon.

solar powered

Our Bali office is 100% solar powered, saving the world one ray of sunshine at a time

1% FOR THE PLANET®

We are a member of 1% for the Planet® and donate 1% of our annual sales to support environmental solutions

plastic-free

Say yay to plastic-free shipments and products! We ditched the polybags and biodegradable options for goold old "unpacked".

SUSTAINABLE FABRICS

75% of our apparel collections are made from sustainable fabrics like organic cotton and others.

Recycled Fabrics

We create at least half of our collections from fabrics containing recycled polyester or nylon.

Waste Management

We work with a waste management organization to handle our office waste to recycle as much as possible

Reduced Waste

We use fabric leftovers to create cute scrunchies and other small items that would otherwise end up on the landfill.

OUR GOALS

______________

We want to continue producing our products under fair conditions with family run businesses in Bali on the one hand – and become even more sustainable on the other!

HOW DO WE WRAP UP AND SHIP?

______________

After years of working in retail, we realized the shocking amount of single use plastic bags and plastic equipment used in the clothing industry. That’s why we wrap up like this:

- Hangtags: biodegradable, no stud / metal ring

- Hangtag strings: from cotton, biodegradable

- Polybags: starting 2021, we completely quit using single use packaging for any of our products

- Boxes for shipments to end customers: biodegradable cardboard boxes for domestic shipments. For international orders we are still using polymailers to make sure that no external environmental factors, such as rain or moisture, can harm the packaging and your products

- Boxes for shipments to wholesale customers and to warehouse: biodegradable cardboard boxes

- Tape (for end consumers): crepe masking tape

- Tape (for wholesale and warehouse): Boxes for shipments to whoesale customers and to the warehouse are closed with adhesive tape made from Polyvinyl Chloride and natural rubber. Aiming to substitude these with paper based adhesive tape
