TRANSPARENCY IN SUSTAINABLE EFFORTS
Here at SLATE, we are committed to long term sustainability in our products and business practices. We choose to continually make conscious efforts in reducing our carbon footprint and protect our natural world. It is our responsibility as a business to strive for the best social and environmental safety for our generation and future generations to come. We are continually learning and growing as we commit to critical change.
Our swimwear is created with longevity in mind. We design our styles to be classic and timeless, withstanding seasons and trends. SLATE SWIM is founded on slow fashion: this process encourages intentional design, ensures quality garments, and slower production schedules. All of our collections are made in limited quantities, effectively minimizing waste. We do not overproduce in order for items to never end up in landfills. With proper care (instructions provided with each order), our pieces will last you countless wears.
FACTORY & PRODUCTION
SLATE SWIM is proud to partner with a production team that parallels our values. Our factory is a small, family-owned and run business that is founded on ethical work practices, ensuring a safe and positive work environment with equal and fair pay. All of our pieces are made with care and with ample time. Our incredible production team is breaking the stereotype of overseas manufacturing and we are so proud to have grown together over the years, from the ground up. Your shopping supports our intentions to help small businesses thrive.
We are now excited to share that orders will begin shipping in mailers made from 100% post-consumer waste. We have made the commitment to use packaging that is not only made from recycled goods, but also created for reuse/to be recycled. Our polymailers are an alternative to mass-produced, harmful, synthetic mailers. Our paper goods (thank you and care cards) are all made from recycled paper as well!
CARBON NEUTRAL SHIPPING
All of our orders via Shop Pay are carbon-neutral deliveries. Carbon emissions from each shipment is neutralized by purchasing offsets from Grassroots. Enjoy all your new bikinis knowing they were delivered to you with care for our planet!

All orders purchased using Shop Pay aid in reducing environmental impact of deliveries.
