Ethical Sustainable Swimwear | Plastic Free Hygiene Liners

by Erika Togashi August 29, 2018 1 min read

SEPTEMBER the Line is doing our part to end single-use plastic.  We are so excited to share a project we've been working on since before we launched - new plastic free biodegradable hygiene liners! It's one many steps towards creating more ethical swimwear in our line.

Plastic hygiene liners have played their part in increasing environmental damage from plastic waste, but for us it is yesterday's news.  This change may seem small but every action matters when it comes to protecting our Mother Earth from more plastic.

How it works

We are extremely committed to becoming as sustainable as possible - we use high performance recycled Italian fabric, recycled paper and PVC for our swing tags, and now we have developed biodegradable hygiene liners.  Each step helps bring us closer to eliminating single-use plastic.  When it comes to our design, business decisions, and environmental impact, we believe that less is more.  We see sustainability as not only an addition to our practices but our responsibility, identity, and the core of everything we do.

How to Noseride

by Erika Togashi October 21, 2022 3 min read

Noseriding, you’ve seen it on YouTube, in photos, and probably at your local spot. It’s a playful move in a longboarder’s repertoire. While the noseride seems as simple as shimmying to the front of the board, most fearless riders who give it a go uninstructed—and some instructed— will find themselves nosediving before they’re noseriding.

Inspired by a story of hope and comfort amidst a time of prolonged conflict, and a beautiful design that derived from this historical event five decades later. Lauren drew her creativity from the stories told of a small group of US soldiers who found solace in surfing during the Vietnam War.

We teamed up with Elizabeth to design a range of swimwear that includes sizes up to 2XL. Being a single woman-owned and small-batch production brand, up until now we did not have the resources to expand our sizing offering. Our sizes only went up until large. However, we are so excited to be able to break down the barrier to size-inclusive swimwear and offer more sizes.
