SMALL steps, BIG DIFFERENCE
Here at Dock & Bay we understand how important it is to take actionable steps towards a more sustainable future. Nobody is perfect, including us, but we have begun making gradual changes that minimise our environmental impact & giving back to causes we care about, creating a brand that future generations will be proud of. Since the start of 2021, all our products are now made from 100% recycled materials.

5% OF OUR PROFITS
GO TO CHARITY
GO TO CHARITY
Since March 2020, we have been donating 5% of our net profits to charities we care about.
Our chosen partner for 2021 is WWF - the minimum contribution we aim to donate is $14,000 to WWF. You’d be wild to miss it.
SUPPORTING THE RED CROSS
As an additional part of our charity work in 2020, we created reusable face masks from our towel material and donated 25% of the proceeds to The Red Cross*
Globally, we've donated a whopping $46,000 (so far!) to support their work during the pandemic.
*Donation made to The British Red Cross when purchased from UK/EU and The American Red Cross when purchased from the US.
SO THIS IS
From the beginning of 2021 all of our products and packaging are now made from recycled or biodegradable materials. Just as quick dry but better for the environment - win, win!
& here's a throwback to our first
100% RECYCLED TOWEL
In collaboration with WDC we launched our first towel made from 100% recycled post-consumer plastic in Oct'19. On top of that, 20% of sales from this went to the amazing charity. Did you know? This year we won the Third Sector Business Charity Awards for our collaboration with WDC. We're pretty proud to see the money we raised with your help makes such a difference.
OTHER STEPS WE'VE
TAKEN SO FAR
Our swim shorts are already made from post-consumer plastic with 6 bottles in every pair! And we've already replaced all the plastic bags that protect our products from damage, with 100% biodegradable corn starch material.
