Swim wear made of recycled materials is now very much A Thing.
It makes sense – if you love the sea, the ocean and the beach, you’ll care about keeping it clean. It was a logical step to consider recycling plastics that could otherwise end up in the sea and making it into swimwear.
If you are dreaming of summer holidays or need to replace your swimmies for the local pool, consider making a purchase that helps the planet at the same time.
If you’re looking to buy from the UK then try Batoko, “a small independent swimwear brand based on the North West coast of England.” They create fun, bright swim suits with a flattering cut. Very reasonably priced at around the £40 price point.
Lilput and Felix are based in Essex and offer a range of different styles, their current collection has a ‘modern vintage’ theme. Priced around £150-£200 for a swimsuit. Also has a sale section!
London based Riz Board Shorts ” are crafted from Eco-Friendly 100% recycled and recyclable fabric”. They offer a range of designs, mostly just under £100.
If you know of any more UK based brands for recycled swimwear then do let me know!
