Sun Protection

We are passionate about sun protection and educating on the dangers of prolonged exposure to harmful UV rays. 

We come from a country with the highest rate of skin cancer in the world so our mission is to protect and help people to take care of themselves and their families in the sun.

Recycling & eliminating plastic

We use as little paper and plastic as possible in our business and always recycle where able. We don’t print invoices unless requested.

We’re strong advocates for the REDcycle scheme and recycle all of our soft plastics. https://www.redcycle.net.au/

(you can see our baby pictured with some of the bags we recycled)

We’re proud to announce that from 2021 we will be using 5 times less plastic by way of eliminating the number of polybags used in packaging of swimwear sent to us from our supplier, saving thousands of polybags from entering landfill each year. 

Polybags used in the textile industry contribute significantly to environmental pollution globally so we’re happy to be able to make this positive change.   

Giving Back

We donate $1 of all website sales of our Lady Elliot Swimsuits, Mon Repos Rash Tops and Bargara Board shorts to conservation of endangered loggerhead turtles at the local Mon Repos Turtle Centre

We regularly support local Australian charities and donate to dozens of events annually.

We were proud to be part of an event earlier this year which donated over $22K to the Currumbin Wildlife Hospital on the Gold Coast, and will also be part of another major charity event in end-2022 which will donate funds to an Australian children’s hospital.

We proudly donate to Kiva Charities also, to support different people in need.

Recycling & clearing rubbish from our beaches are brand values but also family values - you can see our children pictured with some of their recent findings.

Family & adventure

We value family time, traveling, exploring and having adventures with our kids!

We are big advocates for family travel and believe that traveling is a time for people to connect away from the day-to-day chores and the 'to do' list of every day life.

"In the end kids won't remember that fancy toy you bought them, they will remember the time you spent with them" - Kevin Heath.

Travel often, adventure always!
