♻  WHAT MAKES KAI SWIMWEAR SUSTAINABLE 

FABRICS

All our swimwear fabrics are extremely soft which provides smooth skin contact and great comfort during use. All our fabrics also have 50+ UV protection against ultraviolet radiation and are free of toxic chemicals to human skin according to international standard OekoTex 100 Class I. While producing the fabrics, they make sustainable use of industrial water in the process of dyeing and printing, while allowing the use of reusable water and avoiding the consumption of drinking water. As we continue to grow our brand, we always want to offer our customers unique and original suits. We have started working with our manufacturer on custom colours that are dyed on a similar fabric that you all LOVE but that unfortunately isn't biodegradable. With that being said, we always want to look for sustainable options and invite you to read on this 'new' fabric we will be using for some of our upcoming collections. 

Our suits are made with a knitted fabric produced with elastane and microfiber biodegradable nylon. This allows our fabric to quickly decompose after disposal in landfills. Our fabric who once took decades, now takes less than three years to fully decomposed.

SWIM POUCHES

Kai Swimwear is getting into apparel! We have so many ideas for 2022 and we wan't to make sure we produce and partner with ethical manufacturers using sustainable fabrics. All the information regarding our apparel will be under each product as they aren't produced by the same manufacturers.

PACKAGING

All your orders are packed in a compostable poly mailer made of corn. We have added a smaller poly mailer size to accommodate smaller orders. These poly mailers disappear in just a couple months in the compost.

POLY MAILERS

We have also added COMPOSTABLE shipping labels which means you no longer have to cut the shipping label when throwing your package in the compost! We are so excited about this new product ♻



SHIPPING LABEL



We have transitioned to a recycled kraft tissue paper which will have our logo added to with a self-inking stamp.












TISSUE PAPER


We now have stickers to spice up our poly mailers which are 100% biodegradable from a small etsy shop owner in the UK. Our shipping packaging is now officially 100% compostable.





BIODEGRADABLE STICKERS

TO COME

Once we finish our current inventory, we will switch to postcards printed on recycled paper at a local printing company here in Ottawa in order to reduce our ecological footprint.




THANK YOU CARDS

Once we finish our current inventory, we will switch to a compostable adhesive sticker that keeps your bottoms protected in case of returns or exchanges.



ADHESIVE STICKERS

Once we finish our current inventory, we will switch to hand tags printed on recycled paper just like our apparel.





SWIMWEAR TAGS

Once we finish our current inventory, we will switch to a 100% biodegradable sticker just like the ones on our poly mailers.
