Sustainability


Not just a brand, it's a lifestyle thing

THE MISSION

Path to Nirvana was born based on a concept from the Buddhist teachings, The Eightfold Path (Dharma Wheel as some may call it). In a nutshell, it’s to do right by anything and everything you do. Needless to say that us humans have damaged our planet with global warming, excessive consumption of everything, then littering them to places where we can’t see - our ocean.

So I wanted to turn this Path around - to slow down, reduce waste, use less and make Earth a Nirvana again. It is after all our only home, and look let’s be real, you ain’t gonna find a beach in Mars or the Moon and you won’t wanna wear a spacesuit everyday cause that ain’t cute.

WHY WE NEED TO #SAVETHEREEF?

Based on current trends, all coral reefs may be dead by the year 2050. This will directly affect hundreds of millions of people and will be an enormous loss for the planet.  Almost half of the world’s reefs have been lost in the last 40 years. The main cause is a warming climate, in addition to overfishing and human pollution.

REDUCE
All swim pieces are made in small batches and locally stitched at in Sydney, Australia. A small step towards ending fast fashion and reducing the mass amounts of pollution caused from it. 

REUSE

We are incorporating post-consumer recycled (PCR) material with all of our packaging. We try our very best to source recyclable materials ranging from production to packaging.

RECYCLE

All of our packaging is fully recyclable and/or compostable. We really hope to be able to offer products to customers that are looking to make a difference and to encourage people to support the movement of slow fashion, brand transparency, ethical fashion, and less waste.

We are always open to suggestions & recommendations to improve our vision.
