Sustainable and Eco Swimwear
Swimsuit season is in full swing and yet we’re still shopping for that new ‘kini! Fortunately, shopping for quality and stylish swim pieces is easy this year. The best part, brands like Patagonia and J.Crew now have eco and sustainable collections which makes shopping for your new favorite swimsuit the best thing ever! This is where looking stylish poolside while protecting Mother Earth come together.
J. Crew has taken some of our bestselling styles, like this vintage-inspired silhouette, and produced them in a special fabric that incorporates 100% recycled polyester. Like this sculpted bikini top—each one saves three plastic bottles from ending up in a landfill. The new eco swim collection has kept 72,325 plastic bottles out of landfills!
Patagonia’s swimwear is built for surfing and swimming. This one-piece swimsuit features a deep V-neck, comes in a fun reversible stye and is Fair Trade Certified™ sewn. Patagonia pays a premium for every Fair Trade Certified item that carries its label. That extra money goes directly to the workers at the factory. The program also promotes worker health and safety and social and environmental compliance, and encourages dialog between workers and management. After years of research, development, and testing, Patagonia is using recycled nylon fibers that are suitable for apparel in addition to recycled polyester.
