INITIATIVE 2017-04-16T05:41:01+00:00

Inspired by the beauty of Earth comes Petite Terre,
born with a commitment to the environment and an active engagement with our beautiful planet and its cultures.

It’s all in our name : Petite Terre. A Small World.

Forever conscious of the current climate change, our Initiative is to design everything we do in the best way so that all our products and packaging can be reused. We believe in a world where, as in Nature, nothing is wasted.

In the past century, world population has reached 7.5 billion generating massive amount of waste. Approximately 4 million tons of waste are produced every day including fashion industry as being the second worldwide most pollutant industry.

This amount of waste produced everyday ends in landfills, oceans or incinerators threatening natural resources, wild and marine life around the globe.

As designers, we play an important role in creating a “closed loop” system of production and reduce the impact of clothing being part of a real environmental change.

  • “Reducing” the volume of worldwide waste by turning old waste sitting in our landfills and oceans into high quality product. We also cut unnecessary packaging and our plastic consumption by using only natural, biodegradable or recycled packaging.
  • “Reusing” : Petite Terre is turning old waste into new and beautiful swimwear in collaboration with ECONYL. Our fabrics are made from 78% recycled polyamide produced from old fishing nets and plastic bottles.
  • “Recycling” : We make sure that all our products and packaging are designed to be recyclable avoiding anything to end up in landfills. Petite Terre would like to encourage YOU to be part of our global movement and get a discount coupon every time you send back an old swimsuits to ECONYL or to our head office (contact us via initiative@petiteterreswimwear.com for more details).
