“When our great grandfather started this company 72 years ago, the oceans and beaches were cleaner places. Four generations later, in a world with polluted water and dirty beaches, Eco Swim by Aqua Green is answering a call to restore our oceans’ health. By making our swimsuits using fabrics made from recycled materials, we are reducing our carbon footprint in the sand so that our beaches can be enjoyed by the next four generations,” explained Samantha Waldman.
Eco Swim by Aqua Green is a swimsuit manufacturer where sustainability meets cutting-edge design. Its swimwear are made from sustainable materials as its employees participate in beach and waterway clean-ups that remove tons of trash from the oceans. Eco Swim by Aqua Green is a company that aims to create great swimwear while building a better world.
It is a fourth-generation family-owned swimsuit manufacturer in Pennsylvania that participants and leads various ecological initiatives to reduce human’s carbon footprint in the sand. Some of these initiatives include simple changes such as a corporate ban on purchases of styrofoam, recycling of all paper, plastics, light bulbs, and color cartridges. More complicated efforts include asking its fabric supplies to use sustainable fabric.
With a long-term goal, they keep getting better. “Our vision is to be the most sustainable swimwear manufacturer on the planet. We’re not there yet, but with every sunrise we try harder.”
