Aqua Green’s Eco Swim To Make A Splash At Funkshion Fashion Week Miami Beach

Aqua Green’s Eco Swim collection is having a big July with both a swimsuit giveaway contest and participating in Funkshion Fashion Week Miami Beach which will run from July 18-22.

The free swimsuit contest is being held by Haute Mom, a great blog that gives moms a forum to talk about things like fashion, cooking, baby tips, exercise, and generally organizing life.

It’s simple and free to enter the contest, which runs until July 23 at 9 p.m. (PST). You need to be a public follower of Haute Mom, take a look at the swimsuits at Eco Swim, leave a comment with Haute Mom about which is your favorite style, and leave your email.

Eco Swim is definitely worth taking a look at. The collection ranges from interchangeable bikini bras and bottoms to tankinis that also coordinate with different bottoms to one-piece swimdresses.

Eco Swim also has a great coverup dress and board shorts that go with everything. One of the things that I like about the collection is that while all of the tops and bottoms have different prints, they all use a similar color pallet of royal blue, khaki, black, and white.

You can buy two tops and two bottoms and make four different swimsuits. It’s great on the wallet and gives you great versatility. I also really like the tankinis and one-piece swimdresses, because they come in a variety of styles that are all designed to hide whatever imperfections we may have.

One of my favorite sets from Eco Swim is the floral print shirred tankini top and ruffled hipster royal blue bottom. The top has a full straight back with adjustable lingerie straps that lead to a plunging empire neckline with a center bow accent.

The tankin top also has soft sewn-in cups for shape and support, and the length of the tankini has a sliming shape from the bust to the belly. The ruffled bottom is also great because it sits at the hips and provides full rear coverage.

All of the materials for the Eco Swim collection are made from Repreve brand fabrics, which are from 100 percent recycled materials created from post-consumer products (plastic bottles) and post-industrial leftover materials (nylon).

Another great thing about Repreve is that the company saves a portion of each sale make a combined annual donation to a “short list” of environmental causes, and give consumers the opportunity to vote on how the donation is divided up.

“To vote, you need a Repreve hang tag – from your purchase of a product made with Repreve. The code number inside the tag gives you one chance to vote. So use it wisely,” says the company.

Eco Swim purchases have these tags, so you get to buy something eco-friendly and also get to vote on Repreve doing some added good for the environment. Also, another important thing to know is that all Eco Swim products are made in the United States.
