With the summer looking to have skipped straight into autumn, and the heavens have opened above us this eco bikini by French label g=9.8 is the perfect way to look good while thinking about the environment. We're not sure about how to pronounce the name (gee-equals-nine-point-eight?) but these bikinis ensure you can be eco, sexy and sensual.
Made from recycled wood the fabric is, according to designer Sophie Young, as soft as silk with the feel of cashmere and coolness of linen. The material is also biodegradable and anti-bacterial – triple great!
If you don't want to be walking around in a bikini all day, there are lots of other fantastic eco-labels out there that can keep you stylish and eco-savvy.
Over the last couple of years, we've seen an increase in the high street brands introducing organic cottons and ethical fairtrade collections, and celebrities like Emma Watson have teamed up with labels to show that fashion can be fab and eco!
