Tscudo are an Aussie made brand dedicated to protecting people and planet. Their sun smart range is designed to have high UPF50+ coverage and long sleaves to prevent fellow Aussies from experiencing what tsudo business owner, Simon did, when he discovered, like many other Aussies, he had a stage one melanoma.
Thankfully Simon has lived to tell the tale, spread the message of sun safety and created this incredible business as a result of his lived experience.
Going one further, tsucdo are keen advocates for making pro-environmental choices. They are doing their bit to reduce plastic going to landfill by using materials recycled bottles – the perfect material for customers to be able to wear the same item above and below water.
