The 2021 Guide to Ethical + Sustainable Swimwear

Are you ready to hit the beach in an ethical suit? We've compiled some of our favorite sustainable choices for swim season 2021. 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 and filtering the photos. 

This year's favorite? The Bella Crop from Albion...she's the one in the photo. Could this top be any cuter? From the delicate ruffle sleeveworn on or off the shoulderto the blue pinstripe detail, it’s a beachy dream come true. With more coverage than a typical bikini, this Albion Fit suit gives you the confidence you need to be carefree, while still turning heads and dropping jaws. LOVE.

    Some beautiful brands here! But missing one of my faves Styelle Swim – they are 30% biodegradable, ethically sourced and HAF with fabric so soft it is to DIE FOR!

    Also check out SLO active, a social enterprise dedicated to protecting our ocean. They focus on oceanwear and activism. For every piece bought, SLO donates to one of their ocean charity partners of the customers choice, and they plant one mangrove tree for every piece made to offset its carbon emission.
