By Agne Gaidyte
SUSTAINABLE swimwear is trending right now, and for all the right reasons.
It’s durable, helps to safe-guard nature, and looks fabulous. Here’s some shopping inspiration.
Keen to be more eco-friendly? You might want to invest in swimwear made of recycled fabric.
The most common materials used include plastic, regenerated ghost nets and textile waste, meaning you’re doing good for the environment when you choose such products.
That doesn’t mean items aren’t high quality or carefully designed for style and comfort though.
More brands are offering sustainable swimwear as shoppers are becoming increasingly aware of ocean pollution, resulting in a greater variety of styles.
Have you decided now is the time to invest in eco-friendly swimsuits, bikinis and swim shorts? We’ve done the hard work for you and found the best options to snap up to elevate your beach and swimming pool looks.
