Sustainability

At Align Swim, we believe that practicing sustainability is pivotal in aiding the change in our lifestyle which ultimately preserves our environment. We have always been building our brand in an ethical and responsible manner. We want to eventually be able to give back more to society and also collaborate with more environmentally conscious vendors.

Challenged by the fast fashion industry, we advocate the shift to sustainable and ethical fashion. Putting our environment first, we consider the impact it makes and fuelling the choices we do - from production to distribution. 

Our Production



We are conscious about the pieces that we produce. Our swimwear are made from high quality, buttery soft, sustainable fabrics. Our fabrics are more chlorine resistant than any other swimwear fabric and also provides excellent UV protection. In order to minimise wastage, we do not overproduce our pieces.

Econyl 
Regenerated nylon made from waste from landfills and oceans

Repreve
 
Performance fiber made from recycled plastic bottles

Both of these fabrics serve the same purposes - extremely durable & high quality.  We hope to extend the longevity to these pieces as much as possible - to build a new long life for these materials that are given a second chance to be made useful again. 

Who Made Them?

We are working with an ethical factory in Bali, Indonesia. The workers are paid well over the minimum wage, 13 months’ salary a year, receive free medical insurance covering doctors’ fees, prescribed medication & hospitalisation which are extended to their spouse & up to three children. All regulations with Government has been met in accordance with treatment of employees, waste disposal & sanitation. 

In addition, the factory does monthly donations to women & children in need. For leftover fabric scraps - they are donated to communities to channel their purposes into saleable goods.

It is critical for us to find a good manufacturer that are not only excellent in what they produce but also treatment of their employees and working conditions.
