As summer starts to approach and we take time to do the very desperate wardrobe change into our sexy summer numbers, plan holiday trips or simply make time for a sunbathing day, we begin to consider what new swimsuits, bikinis and beach attire we might need to replace.
In this day and age, we have become more conscious and environmentally aware of what the fashion industry is doing to our planet, and the best option we can do this summer is to implement more sustainable approaches to our swimwear wardrobe, therefore, here are the top sustainable, fashionable and simply beautiful swimwear brands that cater to everybody with minimal harm to our environment.
Award-winning British brand and advocates for a positive and sustainable fashion industry, Paper encapsulates cool, contemporary luxe within each one of their pieces, which have all been made from recycled fishing nets and production waste that is found floating in our oceans. ‘Look Good, Do Good, Feel Good’ is PAPER’s mantra.
Fisch’s designs are bound to make you stand out from the crowd at any pool party, their bright colours and printed eighties-inspired styles, matched with their use of Econyl in every piece make this brand, not only young and playful but also extremely ethically and ecologically conscious. Everything is made and woven in a mill in Italy just two hours from their factory, allowing Fisch to minimise its carbon footprint.
With their brand-new swimwear range making a mark, and all their pieces using ocean waste and post-industrial plastic that would have otherwise ended up in landfill, the brand is balancing all the water and waste used to create the pieces and is 100% carbon neutral. All of the swimwear lines are made from a combination of deadstock, textiles made from renewable plant materials, and recycled and regenerated fabrics like Econyl.
Using Econyl fabrics made from regenerated nylon for their swimwear pieces, Jade Swim incorporates a minimalistic aesthetic and innovative silhouettes to all their collections, creating easily transitional pieces which are great to double up for layering. They also offer 100% recycled plastic and biodegradable shipping bags and constantly have sustainability at the forefront of every business decision. Jade Swim is a completely female-run company, from its owner to its warehouse team, and supporting young women is a huge focus for the brand’s charity work.
With the launch of their new swimwear collection, girlfriend collective is taking the world by storm. Including tops, bottoms, and one-pieces made from recycled fishing nets, this inclusive brand offers extended sizing, vibrant colours, and affordable prices.
Patagonia’s passion and commitment to ethical production and sustainability are world-renowned, so there is no shock that their high-performance bikinis and boardshorts have been a sensation. Made from fair trade recycled fabrics, the collection is both stretchy and secure. And Patagonia has pledged one per cent of its sales to the preservation and restoration of the environment. We love it!
