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. The next milestone is moving all our products over to our 100% recycled material made from post consumer plastic, by early 2021.

5% OF OUR PROFITS
GO TO CHARITY
GO TO CHARITY
From March 2020, we have been donating 5% of our net profits to charities we care about. Our chosen partners for 2020 have been Whale and Dolphin Conservation and One Tree Planted - both causes close to our heart.
You can read more about the incredible work they do below...
We will be revealing our 2021 partner very soon. Keep your eyes peeled, it's gonna be wild!
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*
So far we've donated a whopping £35,000 to support their work during the global 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
By early 2021 all our products and packaging will be made from recycled or biodegradable materials. We're already on the way & we promise it'll be just as quick dry but better for the environment - win, win!
Microfibre catching laundry bag
A not for profit product in partnership with Whale and Dolphin Conservation, launched in October 2020. Designed to prevent up to 2/3 of microfibres released when washing synthetic textiles and to help introduce sustainable steps into our daily lives.
& HERE'S 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 towel go to the amazing charity.
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.
