Sustainable Swimwear to Splash Around in This Summer

Summer is a feeling, not a destination. Whether your months ahead are scheduled to be spent snoozing on the banks of Hampstead Heath Women's Pond, wild swimming in countryside streams or further afield in a Greek cove, reading Circe and other great mythologies, might we suggest allowing a sustainable swimsuit to embrace your body?

Do you love the ocean too? Join us on our quest to take summer seriously by making an impact, but leaving no trace. Take a peek at these ethical swimwear brands, many of them created by upcycling fishing nets and cleaning up the beaches.

Let the good, clean fun commence!



One of our favourites; Fisch is a beautiful blend of ethics & aesthetics. Designed in St Barths and made in Italy from regenerated fishing nets, the brand was born from the desire to create statement swimwear with a great fit and design that helped to keep waste out of the ocean by up-cycling. FISCH’s entire collection is made from ECONYL- a 100% regenerated nylon fibre crafted from abandoned fishing nets and other types of nylon waste.

Conscious Swimwear    

Conscious Swimwear is exactly that. Conscious. In every aspect of their business. Their fabrics are made from regenerated nylon (Econyl), thereby they are helping to turn trash into amazing high-quality swimwear. They produce with as little waste possible and make sure that their workers are ethically treated and paid. Also, their packaging is all recycled. And as the cherry on top, their swimsuits look amazing.


I would buy a Batoko swimsuit just for their slogan ‘We're rubbish. Literally’. Genius. If that didn’t push you over the edge, their fun and playfully printed swimsuits will. We love this lobster print swimsuit made from recycled plastic waste, and if that wasn't enough, they also contribute to lobster conservation.

Woodlike Ocean 

Woodlike Ocean was born out of the ocean: its swimwear is made from recovered fishing nets and other recycled materials. Do you love the ocean? Treat it right. Buy sustainably. They are also part of the fantastic initiative, 1% for the planet.


If you are dreaming of summer along the French Riviera (keep dreaming for another year, when hopefully that will be possible again), but also take a look at Sezane for a collection that will make you feel like you are right there. Not only do they sell feminine and beautiful swimwear, but they also have gorgeous dresses, denim and jewellery that will give your wardrobe a sustainable upgrade.
