Together with our SWIISH Tribe, we are committed to creating a more sustainable future when it comes to our industry, our planet, our people, and our business.
SWIISH was built on our mission of helping women feel amazing inside and out. This extends beyond the individual, to our planet and all people. This is what we as a team stand for – it drives our goals and daily decision-making processes.
Our business is on a journey to become more sustainable, by having both a positive social and environmental impact. We are continually developing and refining our approach to reflect our commitment to environmental, ethical and social issues, combined with an ongoing approach to circularity, plus giving back to the community and the planet as a whole.
Our path includes working with suppliers and manufacturers who ensure that their supply chain is ethical, and are committed to a sustainable future. The suppliers we choose to work with adhere to a strict code of conduct in relation to their terms of governance and ethics. This includes, but is not limited to, adhering to all relevant local and national laws.
Through our supply chain, we have developed and maintained strong working relationships with our suppliers. We care deeply about the people in our community and make it a priority to support them.
We source our clothing from a variety of local and international suppliers from across Australia, Asia, America, Europe and the UK. Alongside them, we are working on ways to reduce our carbon footprint and create a more sustainable business that is constantly evolving.
As we are committed to working toward a more sustainable future, the concept of circularity requires us to be smarter about how our products and packaging are produced for their next phase and use. We select clothing that is appropriate for multi-season wear all year round, with the goal that our customers can enjoy and utilise each piece for the long term. In addition, we partner with the charitable organisation Dress For Success, to provide excess clothing to empower women to achieve economic independence by providing professional attire to help them thrive. We also proudly partner with The Beauty Bank, a group that provides women & young people in need with the little luxuries – toiletries, beauty & skincare products – that most of us take for granted
We have partnered with a specialist packaging supplier to create packaging that is eco-friendly and made from recyclable materials, as far as possible. In addition, we are aiming to eliminate unnecessary materials where we can.
We have eliminated paper receipts altogether as standard practice and our SWIISH community have embraced this decision.
RECYCLED CARDBOARD BOXES
We use recycled cardboard boxes for product storage and these are re-used on an ongoing basis.
You know we love our wellness powders and in a mission to encourage others to avoid single-use plastic bottles, we proudly stock a range of glass jars and BPA-free drink bottles in our online store.
