6 SUSTAINABLE SWIMSUITS TO ROCK THIS SUMMER

We all know that fashion is an extremely polluting industry, with swimwear being a particularly bad culprit – pieces are often made from synthetic and non-biodegradable materials because they stretch and dry well. However, there are swim brands who take sustainability seriously by using innovative recycled materials and ethical manufacturing processes. Here are six of our fave sustainable swimsuits, perfect for your next wild swimming dip…

Youswim

Youswim specialises in high quality, ethically produced swimwear, made and packed in England using European-sourced materials. This Eva seamless ribbed one piece stretches to fit seven sizes, so you can adjust it for the coverage you want.
