For the past 30 years founder Kirsten has been searching, mostly unsuccessfully, for decent, ethically-made women's board shorts. Struggling to find fun prints or flattering shapes, and determined to clad the kids in clothing that helps the planet instead of hindering it.
South Beach Boardies are made from recycled fabrics that save thousands of plastic bottles from landfill, or from incineration causing damaging, toxic gases. They work with ethical, socially responsible manufacturers who provide safe working conditions, training, and fair pay. When you choose to buy South Beach Boardies, you're looking good and doing good. They donate 5% of their profits to ocean conservation charities. This financial year they are supporting the Australian Marine Conservation Society.
