We’ve previously presented you with the best sustainable activewear brands and loungewear brands, but 'tis the season to shop for swim, so now we’re bringing you our sustainable swimwear roundup. The market is saturated by greenwashing and false claims of “eco-friendly” materials, and while factors like manufacturing practices, energy usage, and fair treatment of workers are all important things to consider when purchasing from a brand, for the purposes of this roundup, we’ve looked predominantly for brands that use sustainable materials.
From ECONYL — a regenerated nylon created from post-consumer waste (such as used fishing nets) — to other materials that meet the Global Recycled Standard (a system which verifies that recycled products have been processed in a climate-friendly way), many of the sustainable brands we found use materials that offer traditional swim qualities and features (stretch, water absorption, etc.) without being so harmful to the environment. And while many also include trace amounts of synthetic fibers that aren’t truly sustainable or recyclable, cleaning methods like handwashing or using microfiber-filtering laundry bags can all help prevent shedding.
While we hope this list will continue to grow, for now, here are 10 sustainable swimwear brands that deserve your attention (and hard-earned money) right now. Read on to learn more and shop stylish swimsuits for the summer.
