In our latest Business Impact Leaders Series, gain insights from business experts committed to giving back. These individuals will candidly share their journey, why they care to ‘be the change’ and how their business is being a force for good.

On the 27th of May 2024, we welcomed Bond-Eye, a sustainable swimwear brand that commits to creating change for the environment, women, and those in need.

“We want to make a statement. We want to make a change. We are honoured to be able to donate $1 per sale to help women and children in need.” –  Bond-Eye Group CEO & Founder, Steve Philpott

Key insights

Discover the Bond-Eye impact

At Bond-Eye, we’ve built our brand around sustainability efforts to create a culture. We’re a people and product-led business.

The origin of Bond-Eye

Started with a belief to start a journey in 2011, CEO & Founder Steve Philpott let Bond-Eye revolve around a business with a purpose, continuously developing. He believes that the soul of a business ultimately means a business needs to exist for a bigger purpose, and the people at Bond-Eye reflect it.

The sustainability commitment

Bond-Eye as a brand believes in leadership with a degree of humanity in business, and for Steve, it has always been easy to give back, without a question, and just a line in the business model. i=Change is the perfect platform for them to fulfil their commitments with multiple projects from their brands like ‘Protect a woman‘, ‘Restore the reef‘ and ‘Provide life aid‘ projects.

Being on the journey

“…A business can be quite cynical and businesses can pretend to be doing this. But I think, with time, people will vote for businesses that actually do care. And we’ve seen that bear out in the data… because people essentially care…” –  Bond-Eye Group CEO & Founder, Steve Philpott

The impact continues

Raising almost $170,000 and counting from its brands, Bond-Eye Group continues to empower women and girls, as well as the planet. Join Bond-Eye Group in becoming an i=Change brand.

 

“…There is a net positive for what we’re doing. Even if they don’t choose for us to donate something at the checkout, they know we’re doing that and they say that we’re committed to that. That’s definitely a net positive.” –  Bond-Eye Group CEO & Founder, Steve Philpott
