Swimwear Line Invests 100% of Profits in Women Entrepreneurs

Maybe it’s too early to think about bathing suits, especially considering it was snowing here just yesterday and about 0 degrees Celsius this morning, but I’m sure it’s warm somewhere, and in my head, I’m sipping an ice cold lemonade, on a sandy beach in Hawaii.

RubyMoon is swimwear company based in the UK which donates 100% of its profits to micro loans facilitated by CARE International UK’s website lendwithcare.org, with the goal to provide loans to over 1000 women entrepreneurs throughout the developing world before 2014.  As the loans are repaid, the company reinvests in their own business.

RubyMoon’s dedication is rooted in their belief that empowering women to gain an income through micro credit not only means more can be spent on nutrition, medicine, and housing to benefit their children and families, but that entrepreneurship can protect them from abuse by achieving a higher level of respect within their communities.

Working with micro finance for over twenty years, CARE, RubyMoon’s partner in this venture, currently has 131 micro finance projects in 31 countries that offer financial tools and training to those living in poverty, helping to increase their incomes for a more secure future.

Need more reasons to think of RubyMoon for your next one piece or bikini for the beach? Printed with limited edition, exclusive designs by graphic designer Sam Hextall, the high quality outfits are made and materials ethically sourced in Europe – with suppliers expected to comply with their national employment laws and regulations that ensures workers and communities benefit through fair wages. RubyMoon also has  a commitment to the environment, which includes:

  • striving to make their operations carbon neutral – sending no operational waste to landfills and helping their suppliers reduce waste
  • digital printing to order to reduce ink and fabric waste
  • using packaging only where necessary
Maybe it’s not too early to start dreaming about days lounging on the beach after all. Take one step closer and buy a bathing suit today!
Thank you RubyMoon for making our world wonderful.
