Recycled Sustainable Swimwear For The Eco-Friendly Crowd

Open water swimmers can do their part to help the environment. While recycled racing swimsuits or biodegradable goggles have not yet been developed for the market (other than the wood goggles of the South Pacific), several eco-friendly companies make different types of swimwear from recycled materials.

Eco Swim makes a strapless one-piece from recycled nylon and polyester.

Handmade to order from vintage and re-purposed fabrics, California HotMama makes cool swimwear with a one-year warranty for alterations and repairs.

Vitamin A’s Green Bikini lineup with mix-and-match tops and bottoms are made from Repreve, a 100% post-consumer recycled nylon.
