Doing Our Bit

Here at Dock & Bay, we understand that nobody is perfect, including ourselves. We don’t all have the ability to make large-scale changes to help our environment, however much we may want to. But that doesn’t mean we can’t play our part. And so we’ve introduced the ‘Doing Our Bit’ campaign.

We're doing our bit for this amazing planet. Without it, our Instagram wouldn't be as fun!


As our towel business continues to grow we want to begin to make those small tweaks that minimise our environmental impact and help create a better world for us all, both today and in the future. Allowing us to continue to share this earth with so many awesome forms of life. Andy & Ben not included.

In June 2017, we replaced all the plastic bags that we use to protect our towels during transportation to our customers, with 100% biodegradable material - that’s even more biodegradable than you are. This will bring 200,000 (and growing) single-use plastic bags out of action by us each year


What can be hard to imagine is that small day-to-day changes from us all can come together to make a big change towards the sustainable future of our earth. We have plans as we continue to grow to manufacture our towels, ponchos and towel bags from recycled materials. Just give us some time. The first step – our new Active collection is made from 30% recycled plastic bottles. Sounds painful but feels great.
