By now we all know that global warming and climate change is a very real topic that we need to take action on. According to the Geneva Environment Network, fashion production makes up 10% of our human carbon emissions, dries up water sources, as well as pollutes large bodies of water. Additionally, 85% of all textiles go to the dump each year.

Having a hot girl summer is high on many of our priorities lists, as it should be. Let’s make sure we have an environmentally conscious hot girl summer this year with these sustainable swimwear brands.
