It’s time to ditch your old plastic fiber bikini for a more eco-friendly alternative. If you don’t have a biodegradable bikini yet, you should buy it today at Modibodi US.
The most obvious reason to make switches is because of the adverse effects that plastic has on the environment. Scientists have predicted that if plastic waste levels continue to increase at this rate, by 2050 there will be more plastic in the oceans than fish (by weight).
According to National Geographic, it takes about 500 years for synthetic fabrics like polyester and nylon to decompose completely. These microplastics will eventually end up in our oceans, where they are ingested by marine life. And guess? We also eat that sea creature! But when we wear biodegradable bikinis made with organic materials like cotton or hemp, we can rest easy knowing that our swimwear won’t outlast us. .
Here are 6 reasons why you should switch to biodegradable bikinis:
first. Environmental friendliness
Synthetic bikinis are non-biodegradable, which means they take forever to decompose. In fact, it takes 500 – 800 years just for a small piece of synthetic material to fail. It’s been a long time!
2. Say goodbye to microplastics
Microplastics are small pieces of plastic less than 5mm in diameter. They’re found in everyday products like cosmetics and clothing, and they’re even in your tap water. Every time you wash your clothes, these tiny pieces of plastic end up in our waterways and oceans, where they cause great harm to marine life. By switching to biodegradable bikinis made from recycled fibers, you ensure that no microplastics end up in nature as your bikini reaches the end of its life.
3. They last longer than regular swimwear
Regenerative polyamide fibers, such as ECONYL®, are extremely soft to the touch, silky in appearance and comfortable to the touch. This is great news as there is nothing better than wearing a quality luxury swimsuit on vacation. More importantly, you’ll enjoy wearing your bikini for years to come. Plus, you’ll make a small but significant difference in reducing textile waste.
- Your health
Most casual clothes are dyed with harmful chemicals that can adversely affect your skin, especially when you wear swimwear that comes into direct contact with your body. Our bikinis are dyed with natural dyes made from fruits and vegetables, so you won’t have to worry about harmful ingredients touching your skin.
- It lasted for many seasons
The biggest complaint about bikinis is that they don’t hold well and don’t hold up very long in water. However, biodegradable bikinis are made from natural materials, such as bamboo and seaweed fibers, which hold their shape better and last longer than traditional bikinis.
Most importantly, it is affordable. Although there is a myth that eco-friendly products cost more, that is not always the case.
One of the biggest benefits of biodegradable bikinis is their comfort. The materials used for these products are soft and gentle on the skin. For example, swimsuits made from all-natural fibers like bamboo and organic cotton tend to be much less itchy than swimsuits made from synthetic fabrics like polyester blends or rayon. This is because they are free of additives such as formaldehyde or other chemicals that can cause irritation when worn on bare skin for long periods of time.
