Sustainable Swimsuits to Wear All Summer Long
Nine swimwear brands offering up modern styles that are eco-conscious *and* stylish.
The tide is turning on swimwear, with modern options that are both eco-conscious and runway-worthy. One-shoulder and bandeau tops are among this season’s ethical choices, but there are sporty tank bathers, classic trunks, and teeny bikinis — all made from sustainably-minded materials — in the mix, too. Sustainable swimwear brands like Jade Swim offer up sleek bathing suits made from responsibly sourced organic, recycled and regenerated materials wherever possible, with most of their collection made from ECONYL, a fabric comprised of 100 percent regenerated nylon. Galamaar’s Los Angeles-made swimwear also uses the eco-friendly nylon fabric, which reduces waste from oceans and landfills by recycling items like fishing nets, plastic bottles and fabric scraps. And one pair of Fair Harbour’s colour-blocked shorts is made from 12 recycled single-use plastic bottles. (We love to see it!) Here, we round up nine sustainable swimwear brands to shop now for a summer of feeling as good as you look.
