15 Sustainable Swimwear Brands That Are Making Maillot Magic Out Of Recycled Materials
·6 min read
We have a hunch that — despite your summer vacation being a little up in the air — you’re still shopping for swimwear. (Because, um, we are.) Just because we’re not traveling far from home doesn’t mean we’re not seeking a water source — it may just be the fire hydrant around the block or the inflatable backyard pool instead of a far-flung white-sand beach. So no matter what, we’re in the market for a shiny new maillot or a hot-off-the-press bikini.
Keep one thing in mind as you browse the (digital) racks for a new bathing suit: a lot of swimwear is made from nylon, which is plastic. And we know that there’s already way too much plastic discarded into the ocean. As swimwear brands are getting wise to this unfortunate fact, more and more are offering recycled-fiber options in the bathing-tog category.
