SeaPigs Love Our Tiny Blue Dot
 

Our mission is to find a fairer way to do business

 
Mick and Amanda SeaPigs
 

“SeaPigs are going to find a fairer way to do business that balances the needs of the people, the planet and the organisation.”

Mick Armstrong - Head of the Herd

“To make a truly sustainable product, our customers must love our products, our products must love our customers and we all must love Mother Earth. 

Amanda Mitten - Herd of Operations

Co-creation - YOU SPEAK WE LISTEN.

When we say co-creation we mean that we listen to YOU and your needs, while also considering the needs of the planet. On top of that we also use various experts to guide the product; foot specialists, physiotherapists, product engineers, environmental specialists, sustainability experts, designers, engineers and we listen to their advice. We take all this information and make the best product we can using a myriad of advice.

Balance is the key to success.

We know that our customers must love our products, and our products must love our planet. These are the two key components required for us to make a profit and to be able to balance the needs of everyone and everything.

Leaving Positive Footprints

We have always believed in the circular economy and being carbon neutral - essentially, putting back in everything we take out, while reducing our carbon footprint - and we have found a way to do this that celebrates the beauty of nature inspiring our products in the first place.

The tail of Pig Island

"A family of pigs were shipwrecked on an uninhabited island in the Bahamas. The clever pigs learned to mould and adapt to their environment. The fun and clever SeaPigs swim in the ocean and live on the beach, and it’s now become known as Pig Island.

Pig Island

The Bahamas

 

Our brand is inspired by the tale of Pig Island, whereby a group of pigs escaped a shipwreck in the Bahamas by swimming to the shore of a tiny, uninhabited island that they adapted to, and remain on to this day. We see this tale as a beautiful example of nature and a story that embodies our light-hearted take on the more serious issue of humanity’s effect on Our Planet.
