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 all of our pieces come in polybags 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 again. Our polybags are an alternative to mass-produced, harmful, synthetic packaging - plus they're amazing for storing and organizing your bikini drawer! All paper goods are made from recycled paper as well.
NEXT UP FOR SLATE
SLATE SWIM is determined to continue researching and implementing change in our business practices and products. We will work towards consistency in creating a net positive future for our planet's sustainability.
