SWIMWEAR

The Reformation

Price Range: $58+

How they give back: Reformation makes their products out of “super sustainable materials” and as their company grows, they hope to continue to create more sustainable and renewable fabric options.  A few examples of the materials they use are: Tencel, Viscose, Modal and Recover. Tencel (which is almost identical to cotton but more sustainable) and viscose are made from renewable plant materials. About 2-5% of their products are made from re-purposed vintage clothing and close to 15% are made from “deadstock” fabrics. Reformation buys old, leftover, over-ordered fabrics from other fabric warehouses to prevent waste too! You can learn more about their sustainable practices here
