So how can you avoid adding to the mess? Easy, with lifestyle hacks and sustainable brand below, you can enjoy a guilt-free day at the beach this summer
Eco-friendly VS Sustainable swimwear
Environmentally friendly: The practice of taking into consideration the impact that manufacturing garments will have on the environment, the workers and the consumers using them.
Sustainable: The practice of creating garments using biodegradable materials from natural or recycled fibers. Because these materials grow with no pesticide or fertilizer, they consume less energy and water and therefore have a much lower carbon footprint.
Lifestyle changes for sustainable swimwear:
Sometimes we want new swimwear, but that doesn’t always mean we need it. Doing a self-audit to see if you really need that cute new bikini can be a cute way to avoid adding more waste to the environment while also saving yourself money.
- Swimwear swap
Swap meets have been around for as long as I can remember and can be a fun way of getting some friends together with the benefit of also walking away with some beachwear for yourself and again, you wouldn't even have to spend money.
It’s quickly become a hot trend but for the OG thrifters, you’ll know that all it takes is some time and patience to find some true fashion gold. With them being so popular, there might even be a thrift market in your area where you could score some beautiful, sometimes high-end swimwear for less than half the price!
