Commitment to Sustainability
"Because the world is round it turns me on. Because the wind is high it blows my mind. Because the sky is blue it makes me cry."- The Beatles
A beautiful song and sentiment, and it perfectly describes our motivation for sustainable practice. As a swimwear brand we're creating garments, in essence to experience nature in. Causing undue harm in the process seems, well...wrong.
It’s no secret how polluting "fast fashion" is and how poor the ethical standards often are with manufacturing abroad. We’re determined to do our part and help break that disgraceful trend. Our commitment to sustainability is simple: to always do better, to challenge convention, and through our blog and our transparency- inspire along the way. We believe conscious consumerism is the New Wave.
No detail is too small to consider; from our made in LA pad inserts, recycled hang tags and packaging materials to our everyday practices at the office, we do our best to minimize our negative impact. We have also committed to fulfilling orders and shipping from both coasts in order to reduce our carbon footprint and as a bonus, you get your Gala Maar quicker. The biggest player in the process is our amazing sustainable techno-fabric made of nylon from discarded fishing nets that account for nearly 10% of all ocean pollution. Not only does our fabric have waste-to-wear properties, it's engineered to last a very long time with amazing fit retention. Combine that with our quality construction and you’ve got one long lasting swimsuit.
All of our products are proudly made in Los Angeles, California.
