Since Geode Swimwear began in 2018, we've always wanted to do our part to make the world a better place.
If we're being candid, its hard! We know we could be doing more, and wish we were able to do more! But what's most important, is we're constantly looking for areas we can improve in to have a more positive impact on this earth. We're always trying to be better!
That being said, here's some things we're already doing!
All of our swimsuits are ethically sourced. This has always been a priority to us! Our manufacturer is located in Liaoning, China, and we've worked with them for almost 4 years. We love them! They've been with us since the beginning to help bring our designs to life, and we couldn't be more grateful for them. The facility has about 500 employees and has been in business since 2008.
Our headquarters is based in the East Phoenix Valley, in Arizona (United States). We always strive to have a safe, fun, and healthy work environment! We abide by all labor laws, and pay our employees above minimum wage. They are all treated with love and respect, and have become dear friends to us!
All of our orders are shipped out from our warehouse in Rockwall, Texas, United States. Again, all employees in this warehouse are treated with respect and paid fair wages. Employees int he warehouse work a regular 40 hour week, from 9am to 5pm Monday through Friday.
Sustainability is one area we're still working on improving in as a small business, but we're getting there! Here's what we're doing currently-
We aim to send our orders with minimal plastic! Orders with two or less swimsuits (or sets) are mailed in a recyclable paper bag.
Any suits that are defective are donated to our good friends over at Ruby To Blue, where the fabric is up-cycled into beautiful earrings. We love recycling the fabric instead of sending it to a landfill, and we get to help out another small business! (Be sure to check them out!)
Our office also recycles, and does what we can to limit wasting electricity. It may not seem like much, but every little bit helps!
Again, we are always looking for areas to improve in, but we're proud of the steps we've taken so far and promise to continue to improve as our business grows.
Thanks for being here for us!
