Summer is approaching and soon enough beaches and pools will be the go-to spots for everyone. While creating memories at sea or on land, what’s better than having fun in style with new waves in the fashion of eco-friendly bathing suits.
The recent trend of upcycling fashion has extended to bathing suits with brands wanting to reverse the negative environmental effects fashion has on the planet. Shopping sustainably can get expensive, but there are many eco-friendly ways to look good and not break the bank.
“Summersault” is a female-led company popular for its inclusive sizing and recycled swimsuits. Their body inclusivity involves receiving measurements from over 10,000 women to create swimsuits that are 78% made out of recycled materials.

“Dippin Daisy” is another great brand founded by women in Los Angeles. This beachwear is made up of 95% recycled materials and uses biodegradable packaging.
