It is more important now than ever to stay away from fast fashion.
Fast fashion is the mass production of fashion at low cost and this pressure to make clothes more affordable comes at a terrible cost to the environment, and produces a huge amount of waste (85% of fashion ends up in landfill each year).
The fashion industry produces 10% of humanities carbon emissions, is the second largest industry consumer of clean water and pollutes the ocean with micro plastics and toxic dyes.
Luckily there are so many new sustainable Australian swim wear brands opening up both in store and online.
Here are a few stand outs that are changing the game with environmental fashion while still looking amazing.
