10 Eco-friendly Swimsuits From Brands We Can’t Get Enough Of
You’ve probably noticed a rise in sustainable swimwear from brands you already know and love. As far as trends go, this is easily one of our favorites–and we hope it sticks around forever. You may be thinking: Why should I buy eco-friendly swimwear? If not for the incredible styles (see for yourself below), you’d also be taking part in limiting the negative impact of swimwear on the environment. Seems like a win-win, right?
Many brands are working towards sustainability: whether that’s through the use of recycled plastic bottles or fishing nets recovered from the ocean for their fabrics, or consciously focusing on sustainable practices within their manufacturing and packaging. We applaud the dedication and consideration, so we want to do our part by supporting these amazing brands who are creating products we’re excited to wear.
We’re total suckers for a bikini with sleeves, and this one comes in the most beautiful colors. If you weren’t already convinced solely based on the style, the fact that the fabric is eco-friendly might help seal the deal. The brand, which we fell in love with right after discovering, gives off ~zen~ vibes and is dedicated to sustainability, using recycled materials for all of their swiwmear and even eco-friendly packagaing. So, even if this style or color isn’t for you, it’s worth checking out their website to find something that is. Follow Toast on Instagram
We were drawn to this swimsuit based on it’s unique color, but the style isn’t something to scoff at either—overall, this is a staple set. You can feel less guilty on this splurge since you’re helping the environment–thank you, recycled nylon fabric! P.s. this swimsuit was also made in the USA, so if you like to support small businesses (that are also environmentally conscious), look no further. Follow Araks on Instagram
SIE Swim Logan One Piece (Eco Rose Garden) $178
Warning: if receiving compliments from everyone on your next vacation is something you’d like to avoid, this is not the swimwear for you. We think we’ve hit the jackpot on one piece styles… As if it couldn’t get better, this one piece can be worn 7 different ways—so you’d basically be losing money by not buying it. Who knew recycled water bottles could turn into something so effortlessly chic? Eco-friendly swimwear is clearly not a trend you want to sleep on. Follow SIE Swim on Instagram
Not going to lie, we truly can’t imagine this swimsuit not looking amazing on everyone. You’d never know by looking at it (or wearing), but this masterpiece is the byproduct of recycled fishing nets and carpets.

Tropic of C
Love at first sight. Honestly, we’re wondering where this bikini has been our entire lives. Our first thought when discovering Tropic of C was, “Am I cool enough to pull this off?” The answer is probably no, but we’re a firm believer in wearing whatever swimsuits speak to us, and this one just screamed our name. Ah yes, and we can’t forget to mention the brand’s dedication to reducing their environmental impact, from the creation of their products to the materials they use. Follow Tropic of C on Instagram
Do polka dots always look this good? We’re ready to book our next vacation and pack this set. Bring on the perfect tan lines! Peony reminded us that we often forget about the lining of swimsuits, but shockingly it makes up 50% of swimwear fabric consumption. Not to worry, every single swimsuit they create is made from recycled and sustainable fabrics, even the linings. Follow Peony Swimwear on Instagram
Akoya Ellanora One Piece (Black) $178
We truly have no words for this one piece—if the photo doesn’t convince you, we don’t know what will. There are several reasons why we featured this swimsuit, besides the obvious. It comes in 8 different sizes (plus sizes included), it’s Italian fabric is made from regenerated Nylon called ECONYL and you can wear the straps two ways to flatter your bust. Yup, we’re sold.

We love this one piece style and print, but we’re even more in love with the brand. Not only does PALM use materials from regenerated post-consumer waste and fishing nets, but each piece is made-to-order. To reduce waste and leftover stock so they only make what they need, you can feel special (and environmentally conscious) as your order is made within days after your purchase.
