Who They Are
Shopping for the man in your life can be hard but if your man loves the water and the outdoors, then Bermies is the perfect gift! Bermies is a new line of swimwear born in my hometown of Bermuda. This brand is close to my heart since it pays tribute to the island of Bermuda and its beauty. This line uses bright colors and patterns inspired by Bermuda’s beautiful waters and pink sand beaches. They have a wide range of patterns including sharks, turtles, sailboats, and maps of Bermuda. Their shorts are cut a bit shorter than the classic board short (available in two different lengths) for the confident man to show off. They are flexible, breathable, and quick-drying.
The Bermies man is someone who loves adventure and lives life to the fullest. Men have been seen wearing these awesome shorts all around the world from surfing in Bali to sailing in Bermuda. If you want to follow their efforts and be a part of their community you can follow their Instagram account (@bermies) where customers from around the world are featured.
Sustainability & Giving Back
I really value environmental conservation and I spend lots of my time outdoors. In particular, I think that the ocean’s worth is too often underestimated. From a very young age I have been extremely interested in the ocean and have developed a passion for learning about it and wanting to protect it. The awesome thing about Bermies is that they share that same passion for the ocean! A big problem that faces our oceans is that plastic pollution and debris is being eaten by seabirds, whales, sea turtles, and other marine life. In order to help our oceans, Bermies donates 10% of its profits to help clean up our oceans as well as protect marine life. They work with The Ocean Cleanup, which is a Dutch non-profit organization whose efforts are focused towards reducing plastic pollution. Bermies also works with Ocean Conservancy, which is a nonprofit environmental advocacy group that helps formulate ocean policy.
