Vitamin A SwimwearAmahlia Stevens has gone green, releasing a new sustainable capsule collection through her Vitamin A swimwear line.

The Green Bikini line is made from a recycled nylon fiber called Repreve. It was inspired by Stevens' recent work with Yvon Chouinard, the founder of eco-friendly casual wear label Patagonia. His altruism seems to have rubbed off on her too, as a portion of the proceeds from Vitamin A's latest line will benefit Heal the Bay. This not for profit environmental group works hard to keep California's Santa Monica Bay clean.

There are several styles available, including halter neck bikinis and bandeau two-pieces in a range of colors and prints. Each one is homegrown in the United States of America to minimize the label's carbon footprint, keep jobs at home, and ensure workers enjoy fair conditions and pay.

You can mix and match the tops and bottoms, buying the pieces separately or indulging in the complete set. The prices are reasonable for eco-friendly designer goods, although a little on the steep side. Individual pieces start from $75, while the most expensive swimsuit set will set you back $325.

Look for Vitamin A's new green Repreve swimwear at a range of retailers including Barneys New York and Fred Segal. A complete list of stockists is available at the Vitamin A website.
