Swimwear brand RubyMoon only launched two years ago, but as well as creating bright, fun swimwear, the ethical company has also helped 100 women in the developing world start their own businesses.
RubyMoon founder Jo Godden creates her high quality swimwear collection using fabric that is sourced in Europe and made from recycled fibre. All the prints are designed and made in the UK, and the brand uses chlorine resistant fabric to create swimwear that will stand up to the test of summertime swimming in the holiday pools and on the beach.
The best bit? 100% of the profits made from the swimwear are donated to micro-loans to help women in the developing world set up their own businesses and find a route out of poverty. RubyMoon is aiming to help 1,000 women by the end of 2014.
The current RubyMoon collection includes one piece suits and reversible bikinis with bright, bold and graphic prints.
