Why Buy Ethical and Sustainable Swimwear

Are you a socially conscious consumer?

Do you care about the environment, ethical production, diversity and inclusivity, gender equality, poverty eradication?

Do you consciously support small businesses?

Do you want to know what you pay? 

If you answered "yes", COCOLILI is your answer.

In December 2022, COCOLILI introduced the Swim Shop, an independent swimwear line offering sustainable and ethically produced bikinis and one pieces. 

We did so because we wanted to actively show our commitment to being more environmentally responsible.  Even though this decision was to ultimately increase our production costs, it was important for COCOLILI to be a part of the global sustainable movement.  

By the production choices we have consciously made, we support 8 of the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals - no poverty, zero hunger, good health and well-being, quality education, affordable and clean energy, decent work and economic growth, reduced inequalities, responsible consumption and production. 

When you buy COCOLILI swimwear, you partner with us to make a difference in a "shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future".
