SAVING THE PLANET JUST BECAME IRRESISTIBLY PROVOCATIVE
It’s time we recognised the inherent ugliness of the fast fashion industry’s impact on our planet, and begun to shop for the future.
ZERO WASTE MINDSET
Globally, the fashion industry is responsible for up to 10% of our total greenhouse gas emissions, compared to the miniscule 2.4% contributed by aviation, typically considered one of the most substantial polluters. A significant source of these emissions is in the up to 20% of fabric discarded during manufacture, before a product even hits the shelf.
Inch Bikini takes these otherwise discarded fabrics to create scorching sustainable bikini styles, each designed to flatter and celebrate the many variations of the female form.
We make styles in limited-run quantities, producing only what’s possible with what would otherwise contribute to our growing climate crisis. This gives you something exclusive and unique, while also helping to save our planet's resources.
In line with our sustainable ethos, all of our packaging is plastic-free and environmentally conscious.
Sustainability is prioritised from the factory, to our Melbourne studio, right up to your door. Each bikini comes in its own garment bag, made from dead-stock cotton that would otherwise go to waste, and we use certified biodegradable Hero Packaging to send your new recycled swimwear to you.
Our sustainable swimwear is designed by women, for women of all shapes. Each piece designed in Melbourne, Australia by an all-female team, and are made ethically in India by a female-led factory.
All workers receive fair, equitable and safe conditions, along with living wages.
Jyoti heads up our manufacturing team in India, and established her business to set a shining example for women — especially mothers — in business. She prioritises supporting single mothers, while also providing employment for local women and men and supplying them with a valuable technical skillset.
EVERY SALE PLANTS A TREE
We partner with One Tree Planted, so that each bikini you buy plants a tree.
Why love trees? They absorb carbon dioxide — the most significant greenhouse gas — contribute to ongoing soil stability, filter the water we drink, and provide habitat for wildlife around the world.
