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.
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.
We are proud to have released our first sustainable swim collection in 2021; made from premium, recycled polyester. We have continued to release more collections made from natural fibres and fabrics with recycled and biodegradable components, ensuring we are doing so with the least amount of water, treatments and energy as possible. Our latest 'Oasis' collection is crafted from Amni Soul Eco®, the world's first biodegradable yarn. This fabric decomposes ten times faster than other synthetic fabrics. It's a recyclable and reusable nylon that is as resistant and high-performance as traditional polyamides.
All of our packaging is now recyclable (thank you cards), reusable (drawstring bags) or compostable (mailing satchels and branded stickers). Compostable materials are an important part of our journey towards reducing our carbon footprint and contributing to a sustainable future. Our compostable branded stickers are made from FCS Certified paper and printed with soy-based inks.
Our hygiene stickers are compostable; containing a high percentage of renewable materials
We 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 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 Thread Together where we also volunteer.
We continuously liaise with our team in Bali and PRC 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 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.
At HQ we aim to REDUCE waste, REUSE and RECYCLE wherever possible. We’ve switched to environmentally friendly cleaning products, recycled stationery and compostable bin liners. We consciously recycle everything that can be recycled and have worked with our manufacturers to significantly reduce plastics in our workplace.
Keeping in line with our goals, we will continue to work with our supply chain to encourage sustainable practices and fair working conditions. We are also looking forward to introducing more sustainable fabrics into our upcoming ranges with the goal to use sustainable fabrics in all future collections.
