After entering my giveaway, be sure to hop around and enter all of the other giveaways listed on the linky at the bottom of this post!
What's summer without a new swimsuit for mom? Well, pretty typical for a lot of us. But, if you are a size 14 (the average size for women in the U.S.), you're in luck! I'm giving away a fabulous swimsuit from ECO SWIM by AQUA GREEN valued at $128!
Even if you're not a size 14, you probably know someone who is. So enter. You could make someone very happy.
Why is a swimsuit part of the Summer Giveaway Hop when the hop is supposed to be about eco-friendly products? Simply because this suit fits the bill. ECO SWIM by AQUA GREEN is all about sustainability. Their pledge is to the environment and their passion is great swimwear. They are committed to providing products that are often better than the non-sustainable alternatives.
The Mission Statement for ECO SWIM by AQUA GREEN reads as follows:
Our mission is to provide fashionable, excellent quality, and planet-friendly swimwear. We will achieve this by embracing sustainable technologies and methods, hence reducing our carbon footprint in the sand.™ Our vision is to be the most sustainable swimwear manufacturer on the planet.
Not only that, they just don't talk the green talk, they walk the green walk! How? By getting their hands dirty (for real!) as they conduct beach and waterways cleanups where needed. They believe their cleanups help to close the loop in the product lifecycle by revealing what happens to trash that ends up in the landfills and oceans. Along with their cleanup partners, they've gathered over 50,000 pounds of trash!
Now let's look at the products themselves --
- The hang tags are made from recycled materials (FSC certified)
- The woven labels are made from recycled polyester.
- The swimsuit lining is made from recycled fabric derived from post consumer waste (water bottles, plastic bags, etc.)
- The fabric is made from recycled nylon, polyester, and cotton.
- The suits arrive on recycled black hangers and in plastic bags that are 100% recyclable.
- The bra cups are made from Eco Cell foam, a biodegradable material made from plant oils and recycled materials.
- The 2014 line of swimsuits featured waterless dying, which means more water was preserved.
But what about quality? From what I can see from my suit, the quality is top notch. The fabric feels amazing. It is stretchy, yet not flimsy. And, of course, their designs are current and eye-catching.
So, who wants to win one? This size 14 suit can be yours if you are chosen as the winner on June 22nd. Simply enter the rafflecopter at the bottom of the page. USA only.
