Clothing manufacturers creating sustainable swimwear through material sourced from ghost fishing nets.
The sustainable brand that offers vibrant, high-quality, affordable swim and active wear for women who want more design, functionality & ethics. Whilst being ethically manufactured and made from cutting-edge sustainable materials, RubyMoon also helps women set up and grow businesses across the globe.
100% of the net profits generated by RubyMoon are lent out as small loans, to empower women entrepreneurs in eleven nations.
Why? Women are seen as the ‘change’ agents of the family and spend a larger amount of their income on improvements in the health, nutrition and education of the whole family but particularly children.
RubyMoon loans through lendwithcare.org and to date, RubyMoon has made over 200 loans. Case studies showcasing some of the women we have helped can be seen on our blog.
In addition, RubyMoon chooses sustainable materials – ECONYL® nylon yarn from used fishing nets and other waste material is used in our quality swimwear fabrics. The fabric also contains Xtra Life Lycra and is chlorine resistant for more than 100 hours of exposure. RubyMoon swimwear is validated to produce 42% less emissions compared to other high street swimwear by The Princes Accounting For Sustainability Project conducted by Ecodesignbloom.com
What does that mean? Unlike others, RubyMoon don’t use petroleum to make our swimwear. We use waste nylon and plastics that would eventually find their way into our food chain – turning pollution into something beautiful. And our swimwear lasts longer, meaning you can enjoy it for longer!
Lastly, RubyMoon ensures that all our products are manufactured in an ethical and transparent supply chain that means that no one is exploited bringing you these lovely products.
