Kapuluan Coconut Oil Launch

by Shi Kremer June 15, 2017

Calling all AMARA babes! At Amara Swimwear, operating environmentally consciously and ethically is paramount, and we love when other companies hold these same standards. So, we are very eager to announce that we will now be carrying Kapuluan’s 100% Natural Hand Pressed Coconut Oil for purchase!
Kapuluan is a remarkable brand, with an impressive product.
Out of the Philippines, Kapuluan manufactures a locally produced Organic Coconut Oil by utilizing sustainable practices: they operate without harming the earth, they produce no waste, and they also partner with local farmers (the majority of whom are impoverished); Kapuluan works with the Filipino coconut farmers to revitalize the coconut industry, and aids the rural population in recovery, after the destruction of a typhoon that hit the country in 2013.

Could they get anymore awesome? The answer is yes: anytime that you purchase their Coconut Oil, they vow to plant a new coconut tree in the Philippines!

And who doesn’t love Coconut Oil? Its benefits are plentiful: full of Vitamin E and antioxidants, it can be used for skin care, cooking, and hair care, as a moisturizer, a toothpaste, and even as a sunscreen -and that just scratches the surface! Check out a  full list of the benefits over at www.kapaluancoconut.com

We adore Kapuluan’s initiative, and we are overjoyed to share their product with you!

Follow @kapaluancoconut and #GrowingChange to support, and pick up some coconut oil while your at it!

Babes Bearing Skin - A History of the The Bikini Revolution
Babes Bearing Skin - A History of the The Bikini Revolution

by Sasha Djoric July 05, 2017

AMARA proudly raises its fist to the sky in honour of Louis Reard and the 71st anniversary of his design - the modern bikini. Circa July 5th, 1946. 4 days earlier, the US had nestled on the peaceful cluster of islands of Bikini Atoll to test their atomic bombs. Subsequently, Louis had borrowed the name for his new inspiring design hoping the bikini would create an "explosive commercial and cultural reaction". What would be more controversial than testing nuclear weaponry? Women in scandalous swimwear, without a doubt.

The "True Cost" of Fast Fashion
The "True Cost" of Fast Fashion

by Taryn Marly June 06, 2017

It’s no secret that we are a consumer nation, especially when it comes to fashion. Rarely do we take the time to think about where our clothing is coming from and how it’s made. We joke about everything being “Made in China” and never really consider how and where our clothes are actually being manufactured. Director Andrew Morgan poses serious questions about the fashion industry and its social and ecological impact on our world today in the aptly named documentary True Cost. Through his and the producer's storytelling, viewers are able to truly see just how catastrophic this impact is.
