By Madison Feller
There might still be weeks of winter ahead of us, but if you’re anything like me, the cold has you dreaming of warm summer days and the cute swimsuits you’ll inevitably Instagram yourself wearing poolside. But if you’re one to consider sustainability when shopping, check out one of these 15 eco-friendly suits that will look great and are nice to the planet. While many are made with recycled and sustainable materials, they’ll still hold up in the water, so you don’t have to sacrifice your look or your favorite beach activities. A very green win-win.
As a brand, Reformation is dedicated to sustainability and strives to limit its environmental footprint in terms of waste, carbon, and water usage. These swimsuits are made with 78 percent ECONYL® regenerated nylon, which is made from nylon waste from landfills and oceans.
All of Mara Hoffman’s swimsuits are made using recycled nylon or recycled polyester; the brand also uses ECONYL®, the regenerated nylon mentioned above, that’s made from things like fishing nets, industrial plastic waste, and fabric scraps.
