OUR PROMISE TO DO OUR PART
Our oceans play a part in every single aspect of life including: the air in our lungs, the food in our bellies, and the delicate balance of our ecosystems. To survive and thrive, we all need healthy and uncontaminated oceans. At Shaka Swim we do our best to minimize our footprint by avoiding single use plastics, using sustainable materials for shipping, and generating our communications to a paperless capacity. Additionally we have joined 1% For The Planet as a member! This means that each year, at least 1% of our annual sales are donated to environmental nonprofits. We hope to help spread awareness on the issues plaguing our waters! Let's do our part!
We know that purchasing 100% sustainable clothing is not attainable at this time. This fact is especially driven home in the swimwear industry, where synthetic material is almost unavoidable. While research is currently being conducted on how to produce more sustainable fabrics, there is not yet a readily available solution for swimwear. In an effort to complete the circle, we have partnered up with Quilts for Homeless to offer a temporary solution, and repurpose our swimwear fabric. Quilts for Homeless is a small charity that collects donated fabric to make quilts, and distribute them to those in need. We donate 100% of our swimwear scraps from Shaka Swim, and will offer a 10% discount off your next purchase to our customers who also donate. It is our mission to ensure that, while synthetic material is still being used for swimwear, we find a way to repurpose it, and encourage others to do the same! You will not find OUR fabric in the landfill; can you say the same for yourself?
