Australian-based online womenswear brand, Beginning Boutique, has launched a new sustainable swimwear range made from discarded fishing nets and plastic water bottles, but it’s up to you whether to reveal that when your friends ‘ohhh’ and ‘ahhh’ over your flattering bikini.
The brand’s label 9.0 Swim showcases seven styles in the new range, as part of their ‘For The Planet’ initiative. Most of the swimsuits pictured here were made by melting down discarded non-biodegradable waste and spinning it into recycled nylon yarn. (Think plastic bottles and other recyclables found in the ocean. )
“We wanted to educate our customer base the importance of each doing our part for the environment. We’re committed to reducing our carbon footprint, with recycled swimwear the first of many sustainable ranges. Our swimwear is not only sustainable but also long-wearing, without compromising on style and comfort. This will also be the first of many environmentally-conscious collections and are excited to pioneer our own efforts and set the example for other Australian brands.” – Sarah Timmerman, Founder
