With so much plastic being dumped into the ocean each day, it’s no wonder that more consumers are embracing circular fashion, which greatly reduces our dependency on raw materials.

And with spring break just around the corner, many eco-conscious beach goers are opting for sustainable beach trunks that are environmentally friendly, functional and stylish.

Why Purchase Sustainable Swimwear?

When you choose sustainable swimwear over fast fashion brands, you’re helping textiles stay out of the landfill. That’s because sustainable swim trunks are made from recycled and renewable fabric that would otherwise have ended up as waste.

Many sustainable swim trunks are also hypoallergenic because in addition to recycled fabric, ethical brands also use natural fibers like organic cotton, hemp and bamboo to create their swimwear.

Ethically made swim trunks will also last longer because they’re higher quality. You see, fast fashion brands are all about seasonal trends, so they use the cheapest fabric they can get their hands on. This ensures that your swimwear won’t last, and it’ll need to be tossed out and replaced. Sustainable swim trunks, on the other hand, are made to last because the goal is to keep textile out of the landfill, so a lot more thought is placed into making them.

Sustainable swimwear is also ethically manufactured in humane conditions and with fair wages. Unfortunately, many swimsuit brands are made overseas where child labor is unfortunately taken advantage of. And one way to combat this practice is to not purchase big-name swimwear brands, and opting for ethical brands instead.

Below are a few ethical fashion brands that make functional, stylish and more importantly, eco-friendly swimwear for men that’s worth buying.

So whether you just want to lounge by the pool, do some paddling on the lake or maybe even a little surfing in the ocean, you’ll feel good about wearing these.
