Ethics & Sustainability
We are doing our best to produce and deliver ethical, and quality products to our beautiful customers. Salté Designs focuses on slowing down the fast-fashion trend & encourages conscious consumerism.
In 2019 we decided that the ultimate goal is to ensure our customers to feel amazing wearing our products, inside and out. We want our customers to feel proud about their choice, knowing that the fabrics, and materials used in the process are thoughtful chosen in response to our acknowledgment of our responsibility to minimise our impact on our beautiful earth.
Sustainability has been a huge focus the past year. We are making changes both big and small. We take pride knowing that our products also serve as purpose for the greater good & are creating a positive impact on our environment and global community
As part of our commitment to sustainability Salté Designs:
- Swimwear is now made from recycled plastic. Read more about our fabric here
- Discourage ‘fast fashion’ by focusing on small production runs of well made, lasting pieces to encourage women to buy quality rather than quantity.
- Use compostable garment bags and mailing satchels.
- Ship plastic free parcels.
- Recycle, or reuse any plastic sent to us during production.
- Support small suppliers.
We work closely to our makers in both China & Indonesia for several years. Our beautiful sewers are paid above the minimum wage and their working environments are safe and clean. They are free to work from home so they can be with their friends and family.
We will always be on the look out for sustainable fabrics and printing options, while still creating high quality garments.
"We don't need a handful of people doing zero waste perfectly. We need millions of people doing it imperfectly."
We will continue to do our best. We pledge to be kind to fellow humans & of course, our precious planet. We want our beautiful customers to leave, feeling proud of their purchase.
We endeavour to be 100% transparent in our practices so if you have any specific questions please feel free to send us an email.
