SUSTAINABILITY

Our journey to sustainability is one we hold dear.

At TJ SWIM, we are continuously striving to reduce our overall carbon footprint and environmental impact. With conscious consumerism at the forefront, we have been taking active steps towards sustainability, including: researching and sourcing environmentally friendly packaging materials, reducing our overall use of plastic and implementing sustainable practices within our business and supply chain. We may not be perfect, and there is still room for improvement, but we value our planet and are committed to contributing to a better future. We look forward to sharing this journey with you.

PREMIUM QUALITY THAT LASTS

With conscious consumerism at the core of our company values, our mission is to create premium swimsuits that you will look and feel your absolute best in. We work closely with our manufacturing team to ensure that each bikini is delicately hand made to ensure a unique standard of sophistication, longevity and optimum quality. Our suits are designed to be worn comfortably and proudly for an eternity of summers. With TJ SWIM you are investing in quality suits that last!

COMPOSTABLE MATERIALS

Compostable materials are an important part of our journey towards reducing our carbon footprint and contributing to a sustainable future. Our compostable hygiene stickers contain a high % of renewable materials and our compostable branded stickers are made from FCS Certified paper and printed with soy-based inks.

RECYCLABLE PACKAGING

In our efforts to be a more sustainable brand, we are taking steps to ensure that our packaging is recyclable, reusable or compostable! We’ve switched our laminated boxes for a more environmentally friendly option. Now both our tissue paper and branded boxes can be recycled. Just remove the magnets and you’re good to go!

MINIMISING WASTE

Not only do we take waste management seriously at our HQ, but we also work closely with our supply chain to minimise as much waste as possible. Off-cuts or leftover fabric is minimised through smart production techniques however when off-cuts do remain, our manufacturers aim to repurpose them towards the creation of hair scrunchies or, more recently, face masks. We consistently evaluate our stock levels and production orders to ensure that we are not over ordering. When stock remains we donate it to organisations such as the Red Cross to assist those in need.

FAIR WORKING CONDITIONS

We continuously liaise with our manufacturing team in Bali to ensure that their working conditions are inclusive, fair and ethical. Pre-COVID we would make regular trips to visit the workplace to ensure that the working environment was safe and comfortable. As we cannot travel to Bali during COVID, we have instead been checking in with the team via video calls to monitor working conditions and ensure that they are happy and healthy.

CONSCIOUS OFFICE PRACTICES

At HQ we aim to REDUCE wastage, REUSE and RECYCLE wherever possible. We’ve switched to environmentally friendly cleaning products, recycled stationery and compostable bin liners. We recycle everything that can be recycled and have worked with our manufacturers to significantly reduce plastics in our workplace. 

Where to next:

Keeping in line with our 2020 goals (which you can see here), we’ve switched the majority of our packaging supplies to be more environmentally friendly with the intention of having 100% sustainable packaging by the end of 2021. We will continue to work with our supply chain to encourage sustainable practices and fair working conditions. We are also in the process of sourcing eco friendly fabrics to create premium and comfortable swimsuits from recycled materials… Stay tuned!
