Sustainable Swimwear

Typically when shopping for swimwear, the thing we think about most is whether or not the swimwear makes us look good. What if while shopping for swimwear, you were also helping the environment? And even better, what if you were helping the environment AND buying swimwear that makes you look good? It's a win-win situation, right? Thanks to Walden Outdoor Athletic, you can make that situation a reality.

Walden Athletic manufactures products from textiles using recycled products. As they say on their website, "We aim to divert plastic waste from polluting waterways and instead use this material to produce durable and meaningful goods." In addition to using recycled products, they also donate a portion of their profits to conservation efforts. I think its awesome to see a company focused not only on great design and products, but also having a larger mission beyond swimwear.

Okay, so now that I've "talked your ear off" about the mission of Walden Athletic, the big question you may have is "how is the swimwear?" I can confirm that the swimwear is as good as Walden's commitment to the environment.

I tried the Club Brief-Tidal. I instantly fell in love with the teal color I saw online and fell in love with it a second time when it arrived in the mail. The design is classic yet with a fun twist. For example, the front is a classic swim brief design, but I found the back to have just a hint of cheekiness. A modern twist on a classic swim brief...I love it! While many know me for my more "daring" swimwear, I actually enjoy this more subtle sexy look. The fact that they have a variety of color and pattern options is a another plus!

In addition to swim briefs and trunks, Walden Athletic offers shirts, hoodies, and pants. In fact, I've got my eye on the fleece hoodie. The styling looks slim and sexy. Some may find the price point to be on the high end, but the classic styling of their items, combined with the high quality construction, means these are built to last. You are also doing your part to help the environment while buying swimwear, what could be better than that?! Happy Shopping!
