When you think about environmentally responsible swimsuits, do woven hemp costumes come to mind? Depending on your personal style, it's possible that the new collection for Eco Swim by Aqua Green will be a very pleasant surprise.
Looking at the broad range of bikinis, tankinis and one-piece bathing suits available, you would hardly be able to guess that they weren't the same sort of stuff you could buy at the mall. In fact, the some of the scraps and recycled material from those poolside get-ups are used in the making of these. The elastic is 50% recycled, and cotton, polyester and nylon are just as responsibly sourced. Swimwear for Eco Swim by Aqua Green is made from material found in the USA alone, where these fabulous pieces are put together. Now you can flaunt a sustainable American bikini on your own local beach.
