Sustainability and Compassion

We are proud to be an independent brand designed with love in Hawai‘i and made ethically in Bali.

 

Authenticity

We strive to be a brand that uses creativity and brings different and exciting ideas to the table while creating pieces that are wearable. Our signature is in elevating everyday swim staples that make the wearer feel something more. As an authentic swimwear brand we value remaining true to creative and design processes to create thoughtful, original pieces of quality. When you purchase a Those Seen Dancing piece, you’re getting much more than a swim garment; you’re getting hundreds of hours of experimentation, creation, and collaboration.

 

Sustainability

Because of our love affair with the sun and Mother Nature, there's no question that sustainability is a core value. Fashion is one of society’s most personal forms of self-expression, yet the industry's impact on Earth and her inhabitants is in direct opposition to our vision for a sustainable future. Therefore, for us sustainability must be continuous; it is our responsibility to constantly improve our materials and processes in order to do the least harm while still creating and doing what we love.

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 use minimal packaging on our orders to reduce unnecessary waste, and we're committed to eliminating single-use plastics from our supply chain.

 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.

 

Mahalo for loving each other and our planet.

Our Sustainability Partners

Those Seen Dancing x Aquafil

Since our founding, we have partnered with Aquafil to create swimwear made from ECONYL® 100% regenerated nylon yarn from pre- and post-consumer waste. The sustainable fabric is also less likely to leave microfiber waste in our water systems.

Those Seen Dancing x One Tree Planted

An official reforestation partner of One Tree Planted, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization committed to global reforestation, Those Seen Dancing plants one tree with every item purchased in regions of the world where trees are needed most.

Those Seen Dancing x Planet

As an online store, we proudly invest in sustainability initiatives to counteract the environmental impact of shipping. All of our deliveries are carbon neutral through our partnership with Planet.

Each month we calculate total emissions generated, and that number determines our monthly contribution to high-quality carbon removal projects to neutralize our shipping footprint.

Those Seen Dancing x noissue x EcoEnclose

We partner with noissue and EcoEnclose to provide 100% recycled/recyclable packaging with every order. Mailers are made with 100% recycled content with a reusable tear strip, and are 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.
