If you’re really looking to become an ethical and eco-friendly brand, then you've come to the right place! You can partner with us at Bali Swim to ensure that you put your brand in a position to succeed.

Here at Bali Swim, we give our customers the very best eco options. The majority of our swim products are made using recycled fabrics from ECONYL yarns or American REPREVE. And aside from fabrics, we make all of our prints using eco-ink. And with that, we offer paper hygiene liners instead of plastic, our packaging is 100% biodegradable, and we offer a number of other options that you can choose from to truly make your brand stand out.

We also automatically donate proceeds from every bikini, design and starter kit that you order with us to grassroots organisations that support the environment, women's access to education and those in need. And we have also implemented business development and hiring practices that raise the standards for women, health and income in our industry.

We believe in transparency, exceeding minimum labour standards and adding value to our community & environment.

Here are some graphics that illustrate what we do to support our principles. For much more information please scroll down.

WHY DO WE CARE?

Our co-owner Anita has an extensive background in sustainable design, women's health and humanitarian aid; and so understand the importance of the principles and integrating them into our work is integral to how we've grown as a business.

WHAT WE DO FOR SUSTAINABILITY AND COMMUNITY

With every step that you take with us, BALI SWIM helps to clean up our oceans and create a better future for women and our communities.

With every bikini, design or starter kit that you order with us - we donate proceeds to ROLE Foundation and BALI WISE. In the times of COVID we are additionally supporting the work of SOS Indonesia, who are helping to feed those in dire need. 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 through BALI WISE - women’s business education and development. They also regularly educate our staff on how to keep the environment in mind, around waste management and more. Together we have succeeded in banning plastic water bottles on site! In 2019 Bali Swim was 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 donations and we are so grateful for their commitment.
