My last blog post was on sustainable swimsuits, this post however is on my favorite Made in USA bikini from Swoon Swimwear. While the fabric of this suit may not be made of recycled material, this suit has a low carbon footprint, helps keep jobs in America (specifically Milwaukee), and is reversible (meaning one swimsuit is really two)!
One of the reasons I was so impressed by Swoon Swimwear is that the brand is it transparent with why they choose to produce swimsuits in America. One statistic in particular that was listed on their website, makes you realize just how easy it is to make a difference, as it is something you already do each day (spending money). By choosing American made products, you put the power of your dollar to good use and a good cause.
4.7 million manufacturing jobs have been lost between February 2001 and February 2009. If Every American Spent an Extra 18¢ Per Day on U.S. American Goods We Could Create 200,000 U.S. jobs.

You'll see from the MANY images that this swimsuit is comfortable, cute, and perfect for playing in the water with. I choose to share a few photos to my visit of the tiny island in the Caribbean called Barbuda (the sister island to Antigua). If you are ever looking to get away to a remote place with only about 1,500 other people on a beautiful island, then this is the vacation for you. Its perfect for meditation, beach runs, swims, and of course floating on a pink flamingo named Mr. Pink! You wont find many restaurants here, there are only a few hotels and flights only come in a few times a week (so sailboat is a popular way to visit).
