Summer may now be over in the U.K, however as I have just moved to Australia, purely for the fact that I don’t have to put my bikini away, I thought I would share some of my favourite brands.
Shopping sustainably is so important and it is becoming so easy to shop ethically!
Journe swimwear is made ethically and sustainably using luxury Italian fabric woven from ECONYL®. ECONYL® is 100% regenerated nylon fibre from fishnets and other nylon waste.
All of their swimwear is made with love and light on the sun kissed shores of the beautiful Gold Coast in Australia.
If you haven’t already make sure to read my full blog post on Journe.
Peony swimwear is also made from recycled and sustainable Italian fabrics are made by regenerating discarded materials, such as fishing nets recovered from the bottom of the ocean.
“This process results in cleaner oceans and swimwear that’s good for your soul.”
Ruby Moon is another fantastic brand who are making a difference in so many ways. The garments are made from fishing nets taken from the ocean.
Also, 100% of the net profits they make are given to women across 13 different countries as a micro-loan to launch their business generating an income for them and their family to find a path out of poverty.
Baiia is one of my new favourite brands. The name alone is everything I believe in. In means one who has the capacity to change the world for the better.
They use only the highest of quality recycled synthetic fabrics. Such as; soft & durable recycled nylon which is constructed in Italy and made from industrial and post-consumer waste such as fishnets, carpets, plastic bottles and textiles that would otherwise pollute our beautiful land and oceans.
They also only use water based inks that have been proven to be a much more eco friendlier dying option compared to the usual Plastisol inks. These contain PVC and phthalates that are harmful to the environment, and have been linked to numerous medical disorders.
Shapes in the Sand is another small and independent swimwear brand, that hand make their beautiful pieces using soft, durable Italian fabrics derived from ECONYL.
Their fabrics are printed locally using a printing method that does not require water or any harsh chemicals. Through this printing method they promise rich, vibrant colourfast colours.
These are just a few of my favourites at the moment, however I will be sharing a lot more very soon so make sure you come back 🙂
