Looking for eco swimsuits can be tough! And they’re not easy to come by at thrift stores either… Most new conventional suits are made of synthetic fibers like polyester and nylon, which are made from petrochemicals. Nylon manufacturing in particular creates nitrous oxide, a greenhouse gas. For this reason, I went on a hunt to find some cute yet eco swim wear!
