About the founders

STAYWILDWORDEDITFULL.jpg

We, the co-founders Natalie Glaze and Zanna van Dijk, are extremely passionate about protecting our oceans. We grew up scuba diving, snorkelling and exploring the depths of the open water, developing a connection with marine life. We both have a love affair with the sea and have a huge respect for its power and beauty. It is literally the lifeline of humanity producing every second breath we take, and for that we are eternally grateful.

 

We feel a responsibility to give back to the ocean and Stay Wild Swim is our way of doing that. It is our passion project, one we pour our hearts and souls into. It gives us the opportunity to not only fight the marine plastic problem facing our oceans, but actively contribute to the solution.

 

Through Stay Wild Swim we are able to channel our energy into developing a brand which reflects our style as well as our values. Our mission is to produce swimwear with a purpose. Not only are our pieces created using regenerated ocean plastic through the most sustainable practices possible; they are made into beautiful, clean and minimalist styles which flatter every woman.

 

In short, we want to enable you to make the best choice you can without compromising style or substance, and we want you to look and feel incredible while you do it.
