Eco Swim by Aqua Green: Sustainable Swimwear for Women

Summer is quickly approaching which means it’s time to find the perfect swimsuit! Eco-friendly options for women’s swimwear are few and far between which is why I was very excited to learn about ECO SWIM by Aqua Green. This brand’s vision is to reduce their carbon footprint in the sand as they commit to providing high quality, eco-conscious, and fashionable women’s swimwear.

ECO SWIM
has several characteristics that make it the optimal choice for green swimwear. Unlike many other brands of swimwear, ECO SWIM is manufactured entirely in the USA, which reduces fossil fuel up to 96.9%. They also make every effort to choose eco-conscious materials in the design process. Recycled nylon, polyester, and cotton are used to create the swimwear line as well as Eco Cell foam bra cups, dry natural rubber elastic, and FSC certified recycled tags.

ECO SWIM not only values sustainability in the creation of their swimwear line, but they also are involved firsthand in beach cleanup efforts to help restore ocean and waterways to health. With their partners, Aqua Green has removed over 50,000 pounds of trash!

Below are some more great facts about ECO SWIM:

*Locally sourced fabrics are their first option

*Linings are made from post consumer waste (i.e. recycled plastic water bottles or plastic bags)

*Dry Natural Rubber (DNR) is used as the elastic in the suits which is made of 50% recycled materials and is less allergenic than the alternative. Additionally, the supplier for DNR is less than 30 miles away from their factory and actively participates in a progressive recycling program.

*Their textile dye house adheres to Okeo-Tex standards ensuring safe dyes as well as using new state of the art machinery resulting in less energy consumption as compared to old fashioned dying machines.

*Zippers, grommets, and snaps are all made of recyclable materials and drawstrings are made with organic cotton.

*Eco Cell foam is used in bra cups, which is a biodegradable material made from plant oils and recycled materials.
