Bettersoul's Pick for Swimwear Made from Eco-Friendly Textile

Millions of tons of plastic and waste is dumped into the oceans every year, harming wildlife that get caught in discarded waste, like fishing nets, and mistake small pieces of plastic for food. This threatens entire ecosystems and wildlife that inhabit the oceans. Many swimwear brands are recognizing an opportunity and their responsibility to source more sustainable materials like ECONYL® – a sustainable nylon yarn made from regenerated fishing nets, fabric scraps and industrial plastic. Here are some of our favorite swimwear pieces that are made using sustainable materials that are kinder to the oceans we swim in.
