While we all love our fashion, looking and feeling great, the industry is not without its problem. Namely, the fashion industry is the third highest polluting industry in the world. In fact, according to a McKinsey report in 2016, three-fifths of all clothing items will end up either in an incinerator or a landfill within a year of being produced. That’s astounding! Luckily, there are ways to turn these statistics on their head, and in addition to focusing on clothing swaps, thrifting, and cutting back, there’s another way to help reduce fashion’s carbon footprint.
Shop smarter! Sustainable fashion is trending and we hope that this “trend” only continues to grow, and eventually, become mainstream. With summer heating up, the clothes are shedding and people are donning their swimsuits to stay cool. In support of smart fashion, we’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite sustainable swimwear brands to shop this season.
