Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Green Bikini: Janique Madison on Eco-Friendly Poolside Fashion

With a love for leading a green lifestyle and keeping up with the latest trends in fashion, Janique Madison recommends wearing chic sustainable swimsuits to fellow women who love going to the beach. Her choice of summer wear is from Vitamin A’s line of eco-friendly swimsuits made from Repreve, a 100 percent recycled nylon fiber created from waste diverted from landfills.

Designed by Amalia Stevens and crafted in the United States, every piece in the Vitamin A Green Bikini line is made with precision cuts and sleek color palette. Repreve, the material used for creating the swimsuits, has the same quality as that of “virgin” yarns. It is certified by Scientific Certification Systems, a leader in certifying environmental and sustainability claims, and Oeko-Tex Standard 100, the world’s leading certifier of textiles screened for harmful substances.

Janique Madison suggests buying different tops and bottoms to mix and match, and to suit one’s body type or taste in style. The Green Bikini suits are sold in solid black, green, and black and white prints. A portion of all proceeds from the sales will be donated to Heal the Bay, a nonprofit environmental organization dedicated to make Southern California coastal waters and watersheds healthy and clean.

Beach lovers no longer have to worry about choosing between being stylish and being kind to the environment. Thanks to the Green Bikini line, women have the chance to feel gorgeous on the beach without harming Mother Nature.
