Summer is here and I am SO ready for it! Looking for a swim suit? Why not make it sustainable!? There are many options out there right now. I’ve listed some of my favorite sustainable brands below —
ORGANIC BASICS makes clean, timeless essentials that are made for feeling good. Their swim suits are made from industrial plastic, fabric scraps, plastic ocean waste and ghost-nets – for a healthier planet earth. Made from the ocean, for the ocean.
I have partnered with ORGANIC BASICS to get my customers a 10% discount on their purchase when using code SUSTAINABLEOBC.
VITAMIN A designs their collections using recycled and plant-based materials. They use the most sustainable fabric options out there. Every purchase prioritizes the health of our planet. Through their partnership with 1% For The Planet they give back a portion from every sale to organizations that protect our oceans.
SUMMERSALT swimwear is made from a luxurious fabric that is crafted from 78% Recycled Polyamide. These fabrics are made from post-consumer materials and nylon waste—like old fishing nets—that are literally pulled from our oceans. All of their factories have outstanding certifications. Collectively their factories have over a dozen international certifications acknowledging their sustainability measures across categories like biodiversity, recycling and water neutrality.
PRANA uses ECONYL regenerated nylon for their swimwear. They also use Fair Trade certified factory partners for their manufacturing. They believe that when you choose sustainably made clothing, you’re casting a vote for social and environmental responsibility, for transparency, and for a fundamental change in the way clothing is made.
GIRLFRIEND was started with the goal in mind to be as transparent as possible. You can see this on their website. They go into detail on all the fabrics they use, where everything is dyed, cut and sewn. Their swimwear is made with ECONYL – fabric made from discarded fishing nets (essentially regenerated ocean trash!). GIRLFRIEND is also size inclusive with sizing ranging from XXS to 6XL.
