Hmm. Halfway through Summer 2016 and time to add a new swimsuit. Try adding a new eco bikini made of eco-friendly 78% Recycled Nylon and 22% Elastane. Wrap top is not only flattering, it is also easily adjustable. Bottom is ruched in back. Top is $88 and bottom is $72. For these and other eco swimwear choices shop Vaute, an eco brand made in the USA/ cut and sewn in NYC's garment district. The brand has also been hailed as the first vegan fashion label.

As we pass the halfway mark this summer what better than an eco-friendly, season spanning romper by Ace & Jig to add to your growing eco closet. Designed using one of the company's eco Artisanal fabrics that are woven on an ancient hand loom in India, this one is a classic windowpane plaid. The romper features a sleeveless, button-up front with elasticized waistband and tapered leg.
The weavers employed by Ace & Jig's textile factory receive free childcare. The textiles are washed twice to make the fabrics extra soft and shrink-proof, but the water used in the process is recycled for use in the communal employee garden to grow organic produce. Available online at Ethica; now reduced to $198.
