It's our vision to become the most ethical, transparent and sustainable swimwear line out there. Therefore, we are committed to sustainable manufacturing and educating consumers on how to buy less and buy better. We believe that it's the responsibility of brands and manufacturers to acknowledge our impacts and be leaders in driving solutions.
We are proud to officially announce that we are Climate Neutral Certified. That means that we measured our 2020 carbon footprint, offset the entire thing and are working to reduce future emissions. We are excited to be a part of Climate Neutral because reducing global carbon production is one of the critical drivers in stopping climate change.
While we have instilled elements of sustainability from the outset, starting in 2020, we are measuring, offsetting and reducing our carbon emissions.
Why is this important?
We're serious about climate action because science says we have just nine years to make the changes needed to tackle climate change. Overwhelming? Yes. An opportunity? Also, yes.
Solutions to climate change exist, they just need funding. If we can drive investment into these projects, we can cut our emissions and get on the right path to a zero-carbon future and a balanced, healthy climate.
We've spent the last three months working with Climate Neutral to measure our 2020 carbon footprint. We've calculated all of the emissions that it takes to make and ship our products to your doorstep. We then offset all 84 tonnes of carbon by investing in climate change solutions, including Columbia River keepers.
But the work doesn't stop there. We must reduce our future emissions to limit climate change. Over the next few months, we'll be hard at work reducing our supply chain waste and finding partners to help divert fabric off-cuts and scrap fibers from land fills.
Climate change requires immediate action - there isn't a minute to waste when it comes to decarbonizing our planet. If every company were to measure, offset, and reduce their emissions right now, we can accelerate this journey.
Look for the Climate Neutral Certified label every time you shop to support the companies that are taking immediate action on climate change. Tell your favorite companies that you want them to #beclimateneutral. Together, we can solve the climate challenge.
