Second Waves by Madewell

Take your beach day look to the next level in this '60s-inspired, eco-friendly swimsuit from Madewell. Second Waves (the brand's sustainable swimwear collection), has recycled more than 50,000 plastic bottles so far, and this so-stylish ruffled bikini top is just one of our favorites. Not only does it give off total vintage vibes, but the adjustable neckline is a comfortable and flattering option that adheres to a wide variety of body types. Don't forget to complete the look by pairing it with the matching plaid bottoms (sold separately).

Athleta is setting high goals in hopes to eventually have 80 percent of its materials created from recycled fibers and 80 percent of its packaging recycled from landfills by 2020 — and this rashguard is a great start. Ideal for all your favorite watersports, this sleek long-sleeve swim top will be a total game changer and is made from recycled H2EC0 fabric. We love the zipper detailing on the back (which is easily removable after a swim or surf), quick-drying bra cups, high neckline, and its compression fit. If you're looking to switch things up, this herb green suit is also available in monarch orange.
