In order for a clothing material to be used in a piece of clothing, considerable time is spent to extract these raw materials, process them into fabric, and patch them up as a garment. Hence, a material can be deemed sustainable if it contributes to reducing the environmental impacts during this life cycle. We introduce five fibers we can choose from that help make an item of clothing more sustainable.

Finding a set of eco-friendly swimwear with the perfect fit and color is something we all must do for the summer, which is why we couldn’t help but find cute, eco-friendly swimwear brands for the next swimming day at the pool or beach. Here are 8 swimwear brands that use ECONYL®, regenerated nylon from the waste collected from post-consumption and oceans. Learn more about how these brands are sustainable on the ConsiderBeyond app.
