HAPPY EARTH DAY! It’s officially been a year since I first starting blogging, which feels crazy. I went on a hike this morning and it was so sunny out I thought it was time to do a post about swimwear! I’ve been wanting to share sustainable swimwear brands for a while now, and I feel like it’s finally justifiable to do so.
I have always struggled finding swimwear that I actually like. Surprisingly ever since I’ve started focusing on sustainable swimwear brands, I’ve had no trouble finding bathing suits. I mentioned a suit I’ve been wanting in my March Favorites post, but wanted to share several more options as well. So here are ten sustainable swimwear brands for you to check out!
Shapes in the Sand
The fabric used for Shapes in the Sand‘s swim suits is made from 100% regenerated materials. They also use a printing process that doesn’t require water or include any harsh chemicals. I also love how transparent they are about their manufacturing. They have plenty of information as well as a detailed chart on their site!
There are several ways Vitamin A is making efforts to put sustainability at their forefront. They use recycled nylon in their suits and incorporate techniques that lessen waste and water. They also ensure that their supply chain is ethical and they donate a percentage of profits to environmental organizations.
Lingerie isn’t all that Azura Bay is known for! They also have a great selection of swimwear. After learning about the negative side of fashion, Azura bay founder Ashley wanted to make a change. The site is a hub for finding ethical and sustainable pieces. The brands they carry focus on ethical production, artisan made pieces, and eco-friendly fabrics.
I’ve mentioned Free Bella in my March Ethical Favorites post and thought I’d include them again! They manufacture their bathing suits in Los Angeles with sustainable materials. They’re also very transparent about production and pricing on their website.
Another brand that carries both lingerie and swimwear, Le Buns uses only luxe organic and regenerated fabrics. They manufacture their pieces ethically in Bali, with carefully sourced fabrics to ensure sustainability and longevity.
We all pretty much know Reformation for their ethical and sustainably made clothing, but they just recently released their swim collection! And the hype surrounding it is definitely well deserved. Not only do the pieces come in cute prints and styles, they’re also made from 85% recycled material.
I’ve also mentioned Baiia before in one of my sustainable wish lists. Baiia’s bikinis only use recycled materials which uses less water, less energy, and less carbon emissions. Their bikinis include materials such as fishnets, bottles, and textiles that would otherwise be excess waste for our planet!
Now_Then was inspired by all aspects of the ocean. They make their suits with sustainability in mind, and from recycled ocean plastic.
Born out of research on our polluted oceans, OceanZen bikini focuses on cleaning our oceans while creating practical swimwear. They create each piece from ocean pollution such as recycled fishing nets or plastic bottles. They’re cleaning our oceans and giving us fun swimwear!
While they didn’t always focus on sustainability, Mara Hoffman has made changes to put an emphasis on responsible production. Their swimwear is made in the U.S. using printing techniques that reduce waste and water. They also use eco-conscious and sustainable materials.
So there you have it, ten sustainable swimwear brands I love! If you’re in the market for a new swimsuit this sprint or summer I would definitely recommend checking these out. All these brands have plenty of cute options and you can feel confident knowing they’re made sustainably!
