Ethics & Sustainability

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 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!

Our Manufacture

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 3 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. 

 

All of their workers are of legal working age (16+ years old), and work in a safe, clean, and well-lit environment. They prioritize treating their workers with respect, and ensure quality for their products. Employees are paid fair, livable wages and work regular 40 hour weeks, receive time off for major holidays, and have benefits such as sick and maternity leave. We treat them with love and respect, and they treat us the same. 

 

 

 

Our Office

Our warehouse 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! 

 

Sustainability

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! Swimsuits are sent in canvas bags inside the plastic bags. We're also in the process of finding more sustainable mailers to send them in-so keep an eye out for that!

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!
