Finding the perfect sustainable bikini can be a challenge. Up until recently, there weren’t many companies that focused on using recycled materials, offsetting their carbon emissions or sustainability in general. Luckily, things are slowly changing so for those hoping to avoid fast fashion and invest in high-quality sustainable bikini brands, you’re in the right place! Below I’ve listed 17 of my fave companies so you’re can pick up a sustainable bikini for your next trip.
