10 eco-friendly bathing suits you’ll love

Summersalt

Summersalt embraces sustainability in its products and process. Recycled materials are used to create the designs and the suits are delivered in reusable packaging. Plus, all of the swimwear is under $100 (hooray!). 

Vitamin A

“Sustainability is sexy,” is the motto of Vitamin A swimwear. We couldn’t agree more! The suits are made from recycled nylon fibers and the company is dedicated to using recycled and organic packaging materials. Added bonus: they donate a portion of profits to help protect the ocean.

Madewell

This year Madewell launched its first sustainable swimwear collection — SecondWave. The suits are made out of recycled plastic (about four to eight plastic bottles per suit) and come in a variety of styles like patterned one-pieces and bandeau bikinis. 

Peony

If you’re looking to splurge on a high-quality suit that’s also good for the planet, Peony is for you. They use recycled materials for both the main fabrics and linings. As for the packaging, all of the online orders are shipped in 100 percent recycled mailers with compostable packaging.

Fair Harbor 

Recycled plastic bottles are put to some serious good use at Fair Harbor. The swimwear line uses a four step process –bottles, shred, spin, and weave — to create their cute and affordable bathing suits. They also have a “Round Trip” program where they’ll send you a prepaid shipping label for you to send back old suits. You’ll get a discount and they’ll give your suit a second life (win, win!).  

Alyned Together 

Suits made from recycled material? Check. Colorful designs? Check. Alyned Together even takes it a step further by donating a percent of sales to environmental nonprofits. The sizes also range from XS to 3X making them not only sustainable, but also body-inclusive. 

Lole

Lole suits are made from recycled materials like used fishing nets and other post-consumer products. And you can swim in peace knowing your suit is OEKO-TEX® Certified, which means it’s free of harmful chemicals. 

Patagonia

Patagonia may be known for its hiking gear, but don’t overlook their swimwear collection. The suits and rashguards are made from recycled nylon or polyester. Looking for a little something extra for a beach day? Even some of the coverups are made from organic cotton and hemp blends. 

Reformation

Chances are you’ve heard of Reformation a time or two (or three). But even more exciting than their comfy fits and fun designs is their commitment to the environment. They use sustainable and deadstock fabrics, plus eco-friendly manufacturing practices. 

Woodlike ocean

A husband-wife duo started Woodlike Ocean, which is dedicated to creating “feminine eco-friendly swimwear with a perfect fit.” The suits are made from regenerated nylon and they donate a portion of profits to the Healthy Seas Initiative. #CoupleGoals.

Tips for washing your eco-friendly bathing suits 

Clothing made of recycled plastic can break down when you wash it, releasing microplastics. Enter the Guppyfriend Washing Bag. Pop your swimwear (or any clothing made from recycled materials) in the bag to prevent microplastic shedding.
