Aerie’s new swim collection is made from 1.2 million recycled plastic bottles

Aerie has committed to showing unretouched model photos and offering Abilitee accessible accessories, and now it’s showing its commitment to sustainability. Real Good Swim, the new Aerie swim collection, is made from 1.2 million recycled plastic bottles, and it’s just one part of the brand’s plan to introduce more green practices over the longterm.

Real Good Swim is a new, 10-piece, mix-and-match collection. It includes bikini styles in solid colorways and stripe colorways for each, as well as one-piece swimsuits. Pieces range from $19.95 to $54, and everything is marked down right now for less. So now’s the time to prep for your warm-weather getaway this winter.

The new Aerie swim collection is created with Repreve fabric, which is created using 82% rPET, or in more common terms, recycled plastic bottles. Lane Bryant, Fossil, Patagonia, and Roxy, among other brands, already use Repreve for some of their items. Aerie, and all of AEO, Inc., has been public about its desire set firm goals for sustainable practices.

“Our customers are asking for environmentally responsible products, and Aerie’s goal is to deliver products that feel good to wear and to buy,” said Jen Foyle, Aerie’s global brand president, according to Fast Company.

AEO, Inc. also aims to make all of its facilities (including offices, stores, and distribution centers) carbon neutral by 2030. In its manufacturing, it set a goal to reduce carbon emissions by 40% by 2030 and 60% by 2040, according to a press release.
