Jake and Caroline Danehy, Founders of Fair Harbor

Fair Harbor, the fastest-growing sustainable apparel brand in the United States, announced its B Corp Certification, which distinguishes companies that meet the highest social and environmental performance standards and transparency and accountability. B Corps use the power of business to do more than seek profit; they use their profits and growth to positively impact their stakeholders.

“After a 2-year process, we are honored to be B Corp certified,” Jake Danehy, CEO and co-founder of Fair Harbor. “We started Fair Harbor with the mission to mitigate the use of single-use plastics and are committed to continuing to push forward and honor our commitment to environmental, social, and governance factors.”

Fair Harbor also encourages its customers to recycle their bathing suits through its Round-Trip Initiative. As community members are looking through their drawer of old swimwear or finished using their bathing suits, they simply fill out a form, pack it up with a prepaid label and send it back. Fair Harbor then sends the beachwear to 2ReWear, who gives them a second life as insulation and material for rugs.

Fair Harbor beachwear was born out of deep care for our waterways and a desire to preserve our shorelines for future generations. The company makes all of its signature beachwear from recycled plastic bottles, organic cotton, and recycled nylon. Since its founding, Fair Harbor has recycled more than 27 million plastic bottles, preventing waste from entering the ocean. Additionally, the company implements ethical manufacturing practices, using only WRAP-certified, socially responsible factories.
