Sustainable swimwear to apricate on the beach: Ina Swim

Warm rays of sunshine on your skin, the sound of waves from the sea and sea gulls carefully on the look for food: it’s a perfect day of aprication on the beach. But how can a day at the beach be even better? With the right swimwear. Of course. In order to fully enjoy your days at the beach, I’d love to introduce you to Ina Swim, a sustainable swimwear brand for mothers and kids.

What makes Ina Swim unique?

Ina Swim is a sustainable and ethical swimwear brand from Australia. They have specialised in swimsuits and bikinis for women and children, with a unique approach of sustainable nappy swimwear for the very young ones. Besides that, all their products are made from the highest quality fabrics, such as econyl, organic cotton and linen. Their unique fabric of swimsuits are even two times more resistant to chlorine, suntan creams and oils than regular swimwear. So if you’re looking for a swimsuit for you or your kids, Ina Swim is the right place to be.

What is Econyl and Aquafil?

I quickly mentioned it already: Ina Swim creates sustainable swimwear from Econyl and Aquafil. But what is Econyl? And what is Aquafil?

Econyl is a regenerated nylon fabric produced from consumer waste, such as fishing nets, industrial waste and carpet flooring. Usually nylon is made from fossil fuels. And swimwear is usually made from nylon. Which makes most swimwear just a fossil fuel based plastic. By using Econyl instead of regular nylon, Ina Swim is contributing to closing the look of plastic waste in the world.

Aquafil is the organisation that is responsible for the creation of the innovative fabric. They’ve started their journey of creating responsible fabrics in 1965 and since then their growth is astonishing. In 1998 they started with their first attempts to regenerate fibers, and in 2011 they’ve fully developed a production model that allows Aquafil to obtain raw materials regenerated from recycled nylon waste.

Ina Swim has partnered up with Aquafil to use Econyl for all their swimsuits, bikinis, swim nappies and more.

What are Swim Nappies?

Swim nappies are the perfect sustainable solution to a beach day with your young ones. Ina Swim created swim nappies that are comfortable for children, because of the soft elastic waist band and extra snug fit against the child’s body to avoid leakage and mishaps.

Besides that swim nappies, Ina Swim also offers other swimsuits for children. Think of onesies, swim shirts, bathing suits and bikinis.

Sustainable swimwear for women

Although Ina Swim is unique because of its sustainable swimwear options for children, they also offer responsible products for women. Personally I love that all their swimsuits are reversible – both the swimsuits and the bikinis. This innovative feature doubles the versatility of each piece, effectively offering two looks in one, which aligns perfectly with the modern woman’s desire for style, practicality, and sustainability.

I love to pair my Ina Swim swimsuit with a an oversized button up shirt for an effortlessly chic look that transitions seamlessly from the beach to a beachside café. I also like to experiment with the reversible swimsuits to provide a fresh perspective for each outing.

The Power of Investing in Sustainable Swimwear

Choosing sustainable swimwear extends beyond personal style – it’s a choice that resonates with the environment and future generations. By investing in brands like Ina Swim, you’re casting a vote for a cleaner and healthier planet. Ina Swim stands for ethical and sustainable swimwear choices for families. Their dedication to incorporating Econyl, an environmentally conscious fabric, and their collaboration with Aquafil showcase their commitment to minimizing plastic waste and promoting responsible fashion. Whether it’s a surf bikini, a high-waisted bikini, or any other swimwear, Ina Swim’s collection is not just about looking good but also feeling good about the positive impact you make on the planet with your choice.
