The 2018 Guide to Ethical + Sustainable Swimwear

Are you ready to hit the beach in an ethical suit? We've gathered together some of our favorite sustainable choices for swim season 2018. Our list includes a variety of price points, styles, and selections for men, women, and children. Each one was chosen for that company's emphasis on sustainable materials and fair production practices.

We are impressed by the number of companies who are choosing to use "real" women in their marketing, and portraying them in their natural beauty rather than retouching every photo. This is a great advance from having to treat women as sexual objects to sell products. We vote yes for female dignity!
