Sustainability and Compassion

We take pride in being a boutique brand designed with love in Hawai‘i and made ethically in Bali.
 
We don't like to call ourselves an "eco-friendly" brand because we believe being environmentally and socially responsible should be a core value of all brands. We're far from perfect, but we're constantly striving to reduce our impact on the environment. We use minimal packaging on our orders to reduce unnecessary waste, and we've nearly eliminated single-use plastics from our supply chain. To help offset our carbon footprint, we plant one tree for every item purchased and include carbon-neutral shipping with every order.
 
We believe in slow fashion – thoughtfully designed, timeless garments made with high quality materials constructed with expert workmanship to ensure excellent fit, feel, durability, and originality. We do not believe in trend-focused, fast and cheap knockoffs that bypass the design process at the cost of the time and energy that true designers put into the creative process.
 
We are committed to utilizing responsible production methods to the greatest extent possible, such as low-impact printing on recycled nylon fabric and working with materials that are sustainable and locally available. Our Eco Range is designed with premium Italian fabric made from ECONYL® 100% regenerated nylon yarn from pre- and post-consumer waste and less likely to leave microfiber waste in our water systems.
 
We provide, and only partner with organizations that provide, fair wages and healthy working conditions for all levels of staff. We stand for safe working environments for all models and industry workers, and have a zero tolerance policy for racism, discrimination and sexual harassment/abuse.
 
We absolutely love a good vintage find, especially when it pairs perfectly with a Those Seen Dancing piece. We encourage our customers to never throw away previously-loved garments – we hope that you repair garments if necessary, and donate, give away, or recycle unwanted or no longer used clothing and swimwear.
 
Mahalo for loving each other and our planet.

Partnerships

Those Seen Dancing x Aquafil

Since our founding, we have partnered with Aquafil to create sustainable swimwear made from ECONYL® fibre.

Our eco range is made with their premium Italian fabric made from ECONYL® 100% regenerated nylon fibre/yarn from pre- and post-consumer waste. This fabric surpasses maximum standards for durability, resistance to chlorine, sunscreen, chemicals and oils, and meets the highest UV resistance standard of UPF+50. It is also pile-resistant and unlikely to leave microfiber waste in our water systems.

Those Seen Dancing x One Tree Planted

We are proud to be an official reforestation partner of One Tree Planted, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with a focus on global reforestation.

Through this partnership we are able to plant one tree with every item purchased to offset its carbon footprint. At the end of each month we select a different region of the world to plant trees.

Those Seen Dancing x Pachama

As an online store, we proudly invest in sustainability initiatives to counteract the environmental impact of shipping. We offset 100% of the carbon emissions from the delivery of your order through the purchase of carbon credits from Pachama.

Pachama's certified projects comply with the best-in-class carbon offset protocols and standards. Each month we calculate the total emissions generated by our shipped orders, and that number determines our monthly purchase of carbon credits to neutralize shipping emissions through one of Pachama's verified projects.

Those Seen Dancing x noissue x EcoEnclose

We partner with noissue and EcoEnclose to provide sustainable packaging with every order.

Our 100% recycled/recyclable mailers are made with 100% recycled content, 50% post-consumer content, with a reusable tear strip, and recyclable in thin-film bins.

Our tissue paper and packaging stickers are Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified, which means that these paper products are sourced from a forest and supply chain that are managed responsibly and sustainably. They are acid-, lignin- and sulfur-free and printed with soy inks.

Eco-Packaging Alliance
noissue also parters with One Tree Planted, so with every order trees are planted not only by us, but by noissue packaging as well.
