Packaging is important to protect your suit during its journey to you, but can be environmentally costly.
It’s really important to us that we only use as much packaging as is necessary, and with as little environmental impact as possible. All production and printing of our packaging is completed in the UK, using non-toxic and water-based inks.
Knowing the huge problems these single-use plastic bags cause for the environment, we wanted to protect your suit in transit without making the whole situation worse.
Our mailer bags are made from totally biodegradable and (home + commercially) compostable materials like corn starch and PLA. PLA (polylactide) is a bio-based, biodegradable material made from renewable plant material (such as corn husks, rice straw and wheat straw). Inks are non-toxic and water-based.
To protect your swimsuit in transit, we use a cardboard box made using recycled paper of FSC-certified raw materials. The boxes are secured with a colour-free, bio-based sticker with biodegradable adhesive. They’re undyed, natural in colour, and easily folded flat for recycling or future re-use. Inks are non-toxic and water-based.
We’ve included a few notes about us and how to care for your new suit. These are printed on uncoated, FSC-certified, fully recyclable paper inserts using non-toxic and water-based inks. They’re naturally biodegradable.
