"Hawaii-based Manakai makes its sexy, clean-lined swimsuits out of a 100% regenerated nylon called ECONYL, saving energy, water, and oil consumption and giving new life to old nylon."

"Shopping for the right swimsuit is hard enough for most people, but as soon as you learn more about the fashion industry, labor practices, fabric production, pollution problems, it becomes even more difficult."
Many of us live in our swimwear year-round. We paddle great distances in our suits and find joy in discovering the one perfect style that hugs our curves without slipping. Unfortunately, there’s a blatant problem within the industry that produces these suits we love: making them isn’t eco-friendly. Most swimsuit material is petroleum-based which is bad for the environment. Swimsuits’ harsh dyes and chemical treatments are equally toxic for your skin. To fix that problem, simply do your homework as a responsible consumer and avoid these harmful products. —Shari Coble
