At Nudie bumm we are committed to creating and developing long term partnerships with factories that share a common vision of sustainability, accountability and transparency.
ETHICAL MANUFACTURING AND TRANSPARENCY
This means ensuring that our workers are treated with respect and dignity, can earn a fair wage, and that they are provided with opportunities to foster their skills. We are in the business of slow fashion our orders are small and thought our, our seasonal make is once a year and with that all of our patterns are hand drafted and fabric use calculated to the T, to create little to no wasted fabric at all.
We’re committed to cultivating change through investing in marketing activations and sustainable practices with social, political and environmental impact. From transparency in supply and design, our business ethics, design innovation, building like-minded communities that share the same goal of a more sustainable way of life and business.
1% FOR OCEAN CONSERVATION
As part of our business operations it is important for us to give back where we can we are starting this by donating 1% from our yearly sales to Ocean Conversation. As lovers of the ocean and the very inspiration for Nudie bumm swimwear we want to help undo the damage that is being done with plastic waste entering our oceans at an unfathomable rate and harming our sea life and ecosystem we plan to expand this into many other areas that need our help as the business grows.
Our supply chain
The suppliers that we choose to partner with are all certified regarding working conditions and social responsibilities as well as certificates in use of eco friendly fabrication. We do not believe in demanding the cheapest price from our suppliers as it can affect the quality of our garments and put pressure on suppliers to outsource to a less accredited factory. Our relationships with our factories and their employees are important to us and we work hard to maintain them.
We believe that every person in our supply chain is an equal and a friend and should be treated in kind. All workers deserve a fair, living wage and high-quality working conditions. Our workmates in China are all highly skilled in their roles and we respect them greatly for this.
Our philosophy is to "Reduce, Re-use, Recycle” wherever possible. This approach expands from working with our friends in China to recycle and re-use as much waste as possible from fabrics in our swimwear to reducing our plastic use tag hangers shipping bags from manufacture to our HQ to delivering online orders in biodegradable compost Bag, recycled paper thank you cards This small effort literally saves trees every day!
The truth is, we all have a responsibility for the planet, and on our Sustainable Future journey one big part is that we're all about giving back to the environment through local non-profits that align with our values. When people come together and make small changes, the impact can be tremendous. This is why we're so incredibly proud to give 1% of our revenue towards ocean conservation organisations that help to protect the natural environment. They understand that profit and loss are directly linked to its health and are concerned with the social and environmental impacts of industry.
