Can you believe the official start of Spring is later this month? With the changing of seasons comes warmer weather and that means it’s time to find the perfect swimsuit for all of your upcoming beach or pool days! A great brand to turn to for both stylish and planet-friendly women’s swimwear is 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 and polyester 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 4 tons of trash! Below are some more great facts about ECO SWIM:
*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.
*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.
*Trims are all made of recyclable materials.
*Eco Cell foam is used in bra cups, which is a biodegradable material made from plant oils and recycled materials.
*Aqua Green’s resource supplier reclaimed over 629 million recycled plastic bottles last year which were reborn in to an ECO SWIM by Aqua Green swimsuits.
