What is sustainable swimwear?

Sustainable swimwear is designed to be more environmentally friendly than traditional swimwear. It is usually made from recycled, regenerative, biodegradable fabric, and/or renewable materials, with an emphasis on sustainability and ethical production practices. Ethically made swimwear production process is often focused on reducing the use of petrochemicals, using small-batch production, locally made products, and shipping in compostable bags. The best sustainable swimwear is designed to be long-lasting and timeless, reducing the need for frequent replacement of swimwear and reducing the number of swimwear pieces ending up in landfills.

Sustainable swimwear is made from materials that are eco-friendly and ethical. This type of swimwear is often made from recycled plastic bottles or bamboo fiber. Sustainable swimwear is also made to last longer so that it does not end up in landfills.

How swimwear can be sustainable?

Consider the materials used to make the swimsuit. Look for materials that are recycled, regenerative, and renewable, such as Econyl recycled nylon. Check the certification of the swimsuit. Look for organic or B Corp certifications, which ensure that the material is produced in an ethical and sustainable manner. Buy from local and small-batch brands. These companies are more likely to use sustainable practices, reducing their environmental impact. Opt for shipping methods that are 100% compostable. This helps to reduce the amount of plastic waste produced in the shipping process. Invest in quality. Sustainable swimwear often lasts longer than its synthetic plastic counterparts, helping to reduce the amount of waste generated over time.

What is the most sustainable swimwear brand?

Choosing a sustainable swimwear brand can be a challenge, but there are several eco-friendly options available. To make the decision easier, it is important to compare and evaluate the various brands based on their materials, certifications, production processes, and shipping methods. One of the most sustainable brands is Summersalt, which uses Econyl recycled nylon fabric and is certified by the Global Recycled Standard (GRS). Ookioh and Anemos are also good options; they are working to completely eliminate plastic from their production process. Other sustainable brands to consider include BOLDSWIM, Araks, SLO Active, and Bondi Born, which all adhere to responsible practices, use non-harmful fabric choices, and support ocean charities. Whichever brand you decide to go with, make sure to check their sustainability efforts and certifications to ensure you are making the most eco-friendly choice.

California Transparency in Supply Chains Act

The California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 became effective on January 1, 2012. This law requires retailers and manufacturers doing business in California to disclose any actions or efforts, if any, to eliminate slavery and human trafficking from their direct supply chains.

Bold Swim takes seriously its responsibility to uphold ethical business practices and social responsibility; as such, they have made it a priority not condone or knowingly support forced labor within their own supply chain or with partners they work with.

To comply with requirements of the Act, BOLD Swim discloses the following information:

1. Risk Assessments. BOLD Swim performs assessments of suppliers on various risk factors, including suppliers’ labor practices and reputation. For BOLD Swim branded products, they attempt to visit most of the facilities where their branded products are made to ensure the suppliers’ quality and operational practices meet BOLD Swim standards. If during this process, they assess certain labor conditions that do not meet those standards, they take corrective action.

2. Auditing. Their supplier contracts require compliance with all applicable laws, including laws relating to labor, slavery, and human trafficking. They require their suppliers to confirm that an independent auditor has audited their manufacturing facilities to ensure they meet industry standards against certain labor-related practices and make available any corresponding audit report for our review. For BOLD Swim branded products they may audit the supplier facilities themselves or with assistance from third-party auditors from time to time; during such audits, they may assess labor related practices.

3. Certification Requirements. In addition to requiring suppliers to contractually represent that they comply with all applicable laws, BOLD Swim also sells certain products which have third-party certifications, such as Fair Trade Certified™ , Certified Organic that have various certification requirements such as banning child and forced labor. BOLD Swim does not separately require suppliers to provide any additional certification about human trafficking and forced labor. 

4. Internal Accountability. BOLD Swim is committed to social responsibility and ethical conduct in the workplace. Each employee is required to comply with the law and conduct business in a fair and transparent manner as including a prohibition against human trafficking, coerced labor and slavery. Any employee’s failure to comply with the BOLD Swim employee handbook may result in disciplinary action. 

5. Training. Currently, they do not provide any specific training for BOLD Swim personnel responsible for supply chain management with respect to the Act, and the topics covered therein. However, wetheycontinually assess all policies and procedures, including training practices, and update such materials when opportunities may arise. 

HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR SUSTAINABLE SWIMWEAR

While a good tan is bound to fade, when cared for properly, your womens swimwear one piece color should be just as vibrant as the day you first tried it on! Taking care of your sexy woman swimwear can seem like a hassle with the hindrance of sun lotion, salt water, and chlorine causing discoloration but rest assured, BOLD Swim has the solution with top tips on how to care for your sustainable, sexiest women's swimwear.

Please note, buckle waist belts should at no point come into contact with chlorinated water when worn on the body as this will cause fabric discoloration. BOLD Swim strongly advises removing the buckle waist belt before swimming in chlorinated pools to keep your swimsuit in tip top condition. 

 Pursuit's top tips for the best swimwear aftercare:

1. Pre-treat any stains by mixing baking soda with lukewarm water to create a paste. Lightly work the paste into the area and rinse. Be sure to apply the mix & rinse one colored fabric area at a time to avoid the fabric dye mixing which will cause permanent stains.

2. Best practice is to remove excess salt water and chlorine after each wear by rinsing in a bath of cold to lukewarm water with mild to no detergent. If you haven't been in chlorinated or salt water, wash your sexy swimwear for women every 3-5 wears.

3. Rinse well and gently roll sexy men swimwear in a towel to remove excess water. Try not to wring your sexy swimwear for men as this could alter its shape.

4. Lay flat to dry, if outdoors, dry in the shade avoiding direct sunlight. Do not tumble dry or place swimwear thong near any artificial heat as this significantly decreases the lifetime of your swimwear thong.

Additional care tips:

  1. Do not pack wet, sustainable mens swimwear with other garments
  2. Certain sun lotions and tanning oils can cause heavy stains, avoid applying them near the fabric at all cost. 
  3. Buckle waist belts should be removed before coming into contact with chlorinated water to avoid fabric discoloration. 
  4. Be aware that overexposure to chemicals such as heavily chlorinated water and sunlight can naturally cause eco-friendly swimwear to fade over time and break down lycra. Take turns to wear different pieces of curvy womens swimwear to prolong each piece's lifecycle.
