Plastic in our oceans
Plastic in our ocean is continuing to be a big problem globally, with plastic bags being found at the absolute depths of the ocean already.
Further, all stretchable bikinis are made from man-made fibres and these are essentially made from plastics. Whether it be nylon, polyester, rayon, it's all a plastic of some kind. Sadly fibres from the clothing industry are turning up in places like Sydney Harbour due to fibres detaching in washing machines and going down the drains to the waterways.
What can you do?
We are aware that people change their bikinis regularly, perhaps as often as every season or holiday or more. Regardless of when you change your bikini, it's important to realise that you should keep it away from the water as soon as it appears to be shredding fibres. Once it gets to that stage, it needs to be preferably recycled and you can return it to us for that process) or send to landfill*. Whatever happens, it must not find its way to our oceans or waterways.
Return your goods for a discount
Bikini Ink offers the purchaser a $10 store credit for returning goods before they start shedding fibres. Hit us up for more details.
Cleaning up the beaches of Bali
Together with our return credit initiative, Bikini Ink are committed to helping clean up the Big Blue and want to start with beaches of Bali from the plastic menace that pollutes them by financing a beach cleaning machine from profits that will help remove the plastic that is saturating the beaches of Bali. We will update our progress.
*Non-organic waste to landfill is actually better for global warming that organic waste. Due to the extreme heat and pressure that is generated by organic waste at landfill, Methane is released to the atmosphere instead of Co2 and methane is 25-30 times worse for global warming that Co2.
