Working Sustainably

From our coastlines to our forests. From the colours we select to the designs we print. We care about sustainability, not only for our environment, but for our minds as well. We’re baru, we’re for the conscious kind.

Recycled Polyester

We’ve used recycled polyester to create our swimshorts range.

From waste to wear. Each pair of swimshorts has been manufactured with 10 used plastic water bottles. This is recovered ocean waste that’s been collected, cleaned and melted into workable fabric.

This means that every pair of shorts we’ve created has helped reduce both landfill and ocean pollution. How good is that? We’ve also added 8% spandex to keep the fabric light and stretchable, making it perfect for the hustle of an active life.

Organic Cotton

We’ve used organic cotton to create both our t-shirts and long sleeved linen shirts.

Our t-shirts and shirts are 100% certified organic cotton. It has been grown without the use of pesticides or other chemicals and it’s GMO-free!

We’ve kept our promise when it comes to quality and comfort – our cotton has all been pre-washed and feels great. A linen weave has been used for our shirts, ensuring they feel both light and breezy, whilst our t-shirts have been produced in a tight weave so they feel tailored without being too tight.

Sustainable Business

From ethical manufacturing to reuseable plastic-free packaging, we’re trying to ensure that we leave as small a negative footprint as we can. We’ve also partnered with factories in China that are dedicated to guaranteeing worker rights and entitlements.

Sustainable Finances

As Australia’s first bank to be certified ‘responsible’, Bank Australia believes that a truly ethical bank can make society better, and that where people and organisations put their money has a big impact on the world. That’s why they only choose to work with ethical and sustainable organisations.

Sustainable Delivery

Postage and delivery of our products shouldn’t cost the earth. That’s why we’re using Sendle. It’s Australia’s first 100% carbon-neutral delivery service (and a B-Corp!).
