Created in 2018, OCIN is a lifestyle brand and swim label that exists to connect human beings to their most open and free selves, to positively impact our communities, our earth and our oceans.
At OCIN we want to inspire a global openness amongst the curious, the creative and the conscious that we live into every day.
By leading with more open minds and open hearts we give ourselves the space to lean on and support one another. We allow ourselves to feel and be more thoughtful about the choices and individual actions that we take — individual actions that although seem small, are still steps forward to inspiring change for our collective future. And we can start first, right now, with saving the oceans together.
We donate a % of proceeds to our non-profit partner every Chapter. Last Chapter was Surfrider Foundation Vancouver, this Chapter is with Sustainable Coastlines Hawai'i. We also donate to charitable organizations throughout the year including charity:water, Red Cross, WWF, Canada Helps Black Advocacy and Solidarity Fund, and many more.
We use recycled and regenerable ECONYL nylon yarns in our men's and women's collections.
We host beach clean-ups and other initiatives to give back to our environment in a proactive way.
We share the stories and knowledge of humans that are experts in eco-conscious living and ocean protection on our social media and on our OCIN Magazine online.
We set up a recycling program so that when our community is done with their suits they can send it back to us to be recycled and disposed of correctly, with an incentive of a % off their next purchase with us for a new suit.
We collaborate with local artists and creators to make special and unique products, including candles, artist bandanas, and our latest OCIN Sweatsuit program.
We partner with resorts and hotels, boutiques and other retailers that share the same values and ethos of protecting our earth and humanity.
