Every summer, I treat myself to a new swimsuit or bikini. I have a high street-friendly budget and I usually opt for something flattering and on-trend. This year, however, the swimsuit I buy will be my last for some time.
The fashion industry is one of the most polluting industries on the planet and sustainable fashion is the one trend that we can trust to stick around. This is why I will be investing in sustainable swimwear this season and with Paper London, it will not be at the expense of style.
Paper London creates its products out of recycled materials. These materials are collected from the ocean and so by wearing them, you are not only helping minimize fashion waste, you are helping keep the seas clean.
One product we are particularly impressed with is a swimsuit made from recycled fishnets. The official product description for the “Shell Swimsuit in Ivory” reads: “The Plage by Paper London collection of swimwear is made using sustainable techno fabric that is made from recycled fishing nets helping to keep our seas clean and minimize new waste.
“This type of fabric also protects against the suns rays with a UV protector that is SPF50 and is twice as resistant to chlorine and suntan creams that other swimwear fabric.”
So this summer, why not join us by investing in a sustainable swimsuit? You can shop the collection here.
