Sustainability and responsibility
We're a bit more than a swimming company
At Watery, we’re committed to making the world a safer place. From the materials we use and how we make our products sustainable, to their journey from our factories to you, and how they’re recycled, we’re constantly improving our entire manufacturing process.
By pooling our resources to reduce the environmental footprint of our products, we drive positive change where it matters the most.
Dive into our actions for ocean, swimming and footprint
Ocean clean up by every product
Our impact matters
Our desire in Watery is centered around having fun and make great memories. Seeing the oceans being constantly filled up with plastic is a nightmare. Therefore, we knew from the beginning that we definitely need to be the change and have a positive impact.
We have partnered up with ReSea Project
To make our commitment clear and transparent for you, we have teamed up with the Danish organization Resea to fulfill our pledge against plastic pollution in our oceans. For every sold product on getwatery.com, Resea Project and their local community will collect all types of plastic waste.
About Resea Project
ReSea Project is a community-driven clean-up solution, employing people in local communities in Indonesia to clean plastic waste from oceans and rivers. By ensuring fair compensation to the clean-up team, our support of the ReSea Project contributes to improved living conditions for the clean-up team and their families.

Track your pledge!
After every Watery purchase, you will receive a QR-code with coordinates showing where and who collected your plastic waste. This course of action gives you and us a fully documented, transparent, and trackable trust in our pledge for more clean oceans.
Helping next swim generation by donation
Can you swim? Maybe it's natural for you and us to do so; however, the reality for many children and people around the world is another.
Without the right teachers, the right learn-to-swim gear, and
knowledge about the danger of being in the water can end in a unpleasant situation for everyone.
It's close to our heart to contribute to this matter. With drowning being the third leading cause of accidental death worldwide (and the leading among 0-4 years kids). We have decided to donate our best-in-class, learn-to-swim gear to swimming schools around the world with the hope of preventing the premature death.
Please let us know on firstname.lastname@example.org if a swimming school is in need of new gear. We would love to help!
Reducing our enviromental footprint
With our fabrics
With our fabrics
We use responsibly sourced organic, recycled and regenerated materials wherever possible.
The majority of our swimwear is made out of 88% regenerated polyester. This reduces waste from oceans and landfills by recycling items such as fishing nets, plastic bottles, and fabric scraps.
Oeko-Tex certified & Azo tested fabrics, ensuring that there are no hazardous chemicals used in dyeing the fabric.
We only offer solid-colored fabrics which omit the excessive water usage needed for the process of traditional pattern printing.
With our production
All swimwear is made in Europe, Ukraine.
Life cycle assessment conducted on all products.
We upcycle fabric scraps in the production process to repurpose in a variety of ways.
We transport all our products from Asia to our warehouse by ship - it's the most sustainable way to transport goods.
We don't do collections. This means our designs and products are designed to be timeless and less reactive to fast-fashion fleeting trends.
All our products can be made down to only five pieces per order from our factories. This means we don't need to buy a lot of extra in less-selling sizes or products.
With our packing
80% recycled plastic and biodegradable shipping bags. The bags can also be used for returns, so no need for a new bag for that.
Recycled 4x6 info cards and note cards.
Compostable thermal labels and eco-friendly packing list pouches.
Re-useable packing is vital for us. You get extra value and don't end up with plastic. All our swimwear and googles are packed in wet/dry and cloth bags to be used again and again.
