"Maui Now’s Malika Dudley interviewed Anna Lieding and Kelley Chapman. Two local women who started a swimwear label with the environment in mind. Manakai Swimwear recently launched its new and improved 2018 Women of the Wild Collection using an Italian sustainable techno-fabric made exclusively from regenerated nylon 6 fishing nets and industrial surplus. Their pieces are also all sewn in the USA ensuring ethical workplace conditions are met."
Mahalo Nui to Malika Dudley and Lauren Blickley of Swell Consulting for showcasing Manakai Swimwear and our efforts to bring the community of Maui together and raise awareness about plastic pollution on our beaches.
Our first hosted Beach Cleanup was an incredible success with over 50 volunteers joining us to learn about and rid Breakwall/Sharkpit beach in Lahaina of plastic pollution including micro-plastics and nurdles.
