4 Sustainable Swimwear Brands for Your Next Beach Trip

Save the planet in style!

With all the news we read almost on a daily basis of littered oceans and forests, most of us feel compelled to preserve the only planet that serves as our home. While sustainable and zero-waste lifestyles are becoming popular in the country, we’ve still got a long way to go. Every person must contribute to saving the planet even in their own small way. This is why it brings us joy to know that there are sustainable brands out there striving to save the Earth.


It’s surely a positive sign that several brands are now starting to embrace the green movement.  We can expect some hiccups along the way, but at least we’re starting. Here we take a look at four swimwear brands that are definitely worth your support. Look good and feel good, indeed!

You’ve probably heard that our very own Nadine Lustre is the first ever Filipina to become an ambassador for Swedish brand H&M. But did you know that aside from picking the swimwear pieces that flattered Filipina skin tones, she’s agreed to be an ambassador because the said pieces are sustainable?

H&M launched their H&M Conscious campaign a few years ago where they make pieces from organic and recycled materials including leftover fabric from their other garments. #SelectedByNadine is just one swimwear line amidst all the other clothes that are part of H&M Conscious. Shop #SelectedbyNadine at the nearest H&M store.

Founded in 2013 by two best friends, Neon Island Clothing caught the eye of Filipino millennials with their creative aesthetic and timeless hand-drawn designs that give life to their beautiful swimwear line. Each piece is lovingly hand- painted and made by local artisans with dead stock fabric that helps the brand minimize their waste.

They’ve just released Heatwave S/S 2019, their summer collection for the year. You might want to hurry and purchase one for yourself because all their pieces are limited edition.

Body Party’s sexy and functional pieces don’t only flatter the body of the woman who wears it, it also advocates saving the earth. Each swimwear is 100% made with repurposed fishermen’s nets, fabric scraps, plastic bottles, and old carpets – all nylon waste which make up 10% of ocean waste.

The brand, which has 4 collections so far, has a line in collaboration with and beautifully designed by artist and actress Solenn Heussaff. Make a statement and bring a Body Party swimwear with you to the beach this summer! Here’s where you can purchase yours.

Aguariva encourages young women to go out there and be adventurous. Each piece of their swimwear collection is designed to pull through any kind of adventure you might plan on this summer – cliff jumping, diving, surfing, or just lounging out at the beach. Since the brand’s goal is to make use of local resources, their pieces are designed and produced locally and are carefully sourced in the Philippines.
