What is Sustainable Swimwear?

In the world, there are few things we as humans can control. You can’t control the weather, you can’t control time, and you certainly can’t control what other people do. Most of life is about things that are out of your control. The good news is, there are a few things you can control, like what you consume or produce. The less we consume, the less carbon emissions we are responsible for, and the healthier we and the planet becomes.

With the culture of consumerism seemingly multiplying year after year, it’s important to take a long look at how we, as consumers, can limit our intake of the world’s limited resources. This is sustainability.

As far as swimwear, this isn’t just another word for itsy bitsy, teenie weenie yellow polka dot bikini. Swimwear can include one pieces, tankinis, bandeaus and more! You combine the two and BAM! You’ve got sustainable swimwear.

We at Body Love Swimwear take great pride in not only bringing swimwear to the world that allows women of any size to feel comfortable, but also producing something that gives back to the Earth instead of taking from it.

Our swimwear is made from “waste-to-wear” material. This means we take the “waste” of nylon from fishing nets and repurpose it into “swimwear.” No, these aren’t what you usually think of when you hear that a woman is wearing fishnets, but you’ll look just as sexy!

Discarded fishing nets account for nearly 10% of the oceans’ pollution, so we’re proud to be doing our part to make our oceans clean and save our planet. One beautiful swimsuit at a time!

In addition to our repurposing of waste materials, we are also proud to donate 5% of our profits to the preservation and restoration of the human race and environment. Recycling wasteful materials is an important step in sustainability and environmental responsibility, but guiding, shaping and educating are also vitally important steps to saving the planet. We’ve only got one world and we aim to save it.

Our sustainable swimwear is made for women of all shapes and sizes. Nothing in this world is truly one size fits all (unless we’re talking extra large mimosas!) so why should we expect swimwear to be?

When shopping for swimwear that’s inclusive of all body types, it can be hard to find something that’s right for you specifically, let alone having to worry about the swimwear being ethically constructed. We’re happy to show that it’s not only possible, it’s possible to do it extremely well!

We feel that our commitment to helping the Earth is important, but we also feel that our inclusion of all beautiful body types is also an important part of what makes our company truly great.

Wearing swimwear from BLS helps not only to empower women, but also does a small amount to save our one and only planet! Check out our lines of fashionable, sustainable swimwear here.
