Ethical and Eco Friendly
At Banane Palm, when designing our SWIM collection, it was our mission to ensure the process and end product were both ethical and eco friendly.
We chose a factory in Bali that has the same vision as us. For every bikini we have made they donate proceeds to ROLE FOUNDATION and BALI WISE. In the times of COVID they are additionally supporting the work of SOS Indonesia, who are helping to feed those in dire need.
ROLE FOUNDATION run a zero waste facility and environmental development programs in Bali. Their vision supports zero waste to oceans, sustainable businesses for coastal communities, and through BALI WISE - women’s business education and development.
The majority of our swim products are made using recycled fabrics from Italian Carvico Vita ECONYL® and we use paper hygiene liners instead of plastic.
ECONYL® yarn, a 100% regenerated nylon yarn derived is from pre and post industrial waste such as discarded fishing nets, carpet fluff (the top part of Nylon carpets which have got to the end of their useful life), tulle etc.: all such materials, once they have reached the end of their useful life, instead of being disposed of in the landfill, are recovered and regenerated by means of a complex chemical-physical process.
