Just ADD color...

Just ADD color...

As the sun rises atop a ridge line or surfaces over the salty horizon, it brings with it the dawning of a new day, a new moment, a new reality. Soft shades of peaches and oranges color the canvas of life. And, in the warm fluorescence of morning’s golden glow, we’re invited to breathe in the creative potential of blossoming light.

Manakai Swimwear's Top Picks: Sustainable Lifestyle Bloggers

Leading a sustainable lifestyle that puts the health of our planet in the number one spot seems like it should be easy, but with societal norms being centered around cheap, convenient, and accessible, the struggle is real. Sometimes a little inspiration from amazing eco-warrioresses around the world is needed to help start a new eco-habit or to reinforce the fact that even the smallest changes can make a lasting impact.

Featured in: Sup the Mag "Sustainable Swimwear"

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

Owners Kelley and Anna are grateful and humbled to be featured amongst some of the top swimwear brands in the world.  Remember, "quality doesn’t have to be surrendered when doing good for the environment."  Read more about Manakai Swimwear and other companies that are changing the face of the fashion industry and making environmentally friendly swimwear choices available for women worldwide.
