MOVES
FOR
A
HAPPY
PLANET

WeAreNativ is a movement for positive change, every step we take on our adventure as a brand is made with the preservation of the planet in mind. These Green Credentials are a map of our sustainable journey, and our plans for the future.

All of our swim and activewear is made from ECONYL® yarn - 100% regenerated nylon from pre- and post-consumer waste - and produced by ethical and eco-friendly manufacturer King Trading in Bali. The WeAreNativ team visit King Trading on a regular basis, it is a clean and well maintained factory where the staff are treated like family. The pay is far above minimum wage and all staff plus their families are provided with full medical insurance.

All t-shirts are Earth Positive, manufactured solely with renewable green energy from wind and solar and made with 100% organic cotton.

ACTIONS FOR GOOD

Along with our friends and colleagues, we have so far organised a beach clean and tree planting day. This is just the beginning, we will be planning many more events like this where we can come together with our tribe to help clean and nurture Mother Earth, and give back in a very real, hands on way.

Earth Girls with a Passion for The Planet is an event series started in June 2019 and once we make it through these extraordinary global times and can mix with our tribe again, we will be planning a follow up gathering. These events are designed to leverage the power of a conscious community, to support, educate and influence each other on an eco-friendly path.

We have recently partnered with One Tree Planted to plant one tree for every single garment sold - so even in these times where we cannot organise events, trees are still going into the ground.

POSITIVE PARTNERSHIPS

Awareness is one of the most impactful ways we can make a difference. We are actively finding ways to amplify this message by joining forces with those who have a bigger voice, to positively influence a wider group of people to change their habits for the better.

TRANSPARENCY & PLANS

There are many ways in which we are doing our bit for the planet, but we also recognise that the only way to perform as a conscious brand is to be fully transparent, to accept our flaws and acknowledge our journey towards reducing our impact on the environment.

We are not carbon neutral - yet! Although our operation is fairly small, we realise that shipping our pieces overseas, and our own travel comes at a cost to the environment. We are working towards becoming fully carbon neutral by offsetting these emissions, and we are also reducing our travel by working remotely with photographers and crew for our photoshoots, and with our factory and other partners overseas

Our swim and activewear pieces are made of nylon, this means that when they are washed, harmful microplastics are released into the environment. We have been looking into ways in which we can reduce this waste, and we are considering partnering with a laundry bag brand such as Guppy Friend, a bag which is designed to catch microwaste. We are also looking at using more organic materials, although this option would compromise the strength and durability of the pieces. So it’s tricky. It’s a challenge. But we continue to search for answers.
