Looking to save on swimsuits before the end of the season? Now’s your chance. Eco-Panda is offering 20% off its line of sustainably made swimwear (thanks to one of my favorite green blogs Your Daily Thread). Simply type coupon code “YDT” to redeem the discount. My favorite styles take inspiration from retro, Japanese floral prints such as the Tokyo Station (above right), or modern geometric mosaics found in the Tsunami (above left). Prices are reasonable, most retail around $68 per suit before the discount.
THE FAB FACTOR:
According to Eco-Panda, their collection of suits is made from a recycled nylon fiber called Regen. The raw nylon is recovered from fishing nets, ground into chips, liquified into a knit woven fabric. The result leads to a 27% reduction in natural petroleum production and 28% less greenhouse gases during manufacture. Not to mention the rescue of nylon nets from the landfill.
Your Daily Thread is giving away a free Eco-Panda swimsuit to three lucky YDT readers. Simply visit today’s Friday–Food+Fashion post about Eco-Panda, and contribute a comment to be entered into the drawing. Check out YDT for more insightful green living ideas.
