Santos Swim's Seminyak One Piece can be seen in Condé Nast Traveller's March 2021 edition! This issue is fittingly all about sustainability and we're thrilled to be showcased in the Luxury Gift Guide alongside other incredible international brands.
The excerpt reads: "Santos Swim is a globally-conscious swimwear brand creating destination-inspired designs using luxury, eco-friendly fabrics. The bestselling Seminyak One Piece can be worn both as swimwear or beyond the beach as a bodysuit. By focusing on sustainable practices, this women-owned company inspires its community to live consciously."
Condé Nast Traveller is known for giving the inside scoop on global destinations, but this issue's first ever Green List shifts the focus to conscious changemakers around the world. Among those mentioned is California's own Leah Thomas, an intersectional environmentalist who is a major force advocating for justice for people + the planet. Her platforms shed light on how social justice + sustainability are unarguably connected and how anyone can be an environmentalist.
They also highlight Ronald Akili, the co-founder of one of our favorite eco-conscious Bali hotspots, Desa Potato Head. This creative village has been years in the making, fusing together sustainable practices, educational meet-ups, global musical talent, eco-luxury accommodations, clean eating and more. Their new Sustainism Lab is an innovative workshop examining Bali's waste problem and experimenting with transforming that waste into new materials + products.
Lonely Whale's co-founder Adrian Grenier, an actor + UN Environment Goodwill Ambassador, brings attention to the alarm statistic that "by 2050 the ocean is expected to contain more plastic than fish" and continues to fight against plastic pollution through his foundation's initiatives. These include pushing for new innovations for plastic alternatives and working with large corporations such as Ikea to incorporate plastic waste into their supply chains.
Hailing from Hilo, Hawaii, Dr. Cliff Kapono is a UCSD Alumni, chemist, pro surfer, and journalist bringing attention to the complex environmental issues surrounding our seas. This includes advocating for the protection of coral reefs around the world and analyzing how time spent in the ocean can influence human gut health on a microbiologic level.
There are so many other brilliant voices highlighted and we're honored to share the same issue with these inspiring humans. We hope to continue to see big publications lift up these voices for positive change and normalize the need for a more sustainable world.
