A Sustainable Summer
Summer is around the corner; it is time to spend the day at the beach, tan by the pool, and have dinner with friends and family. Those long summer nights are coming soon and will be here before you know it!
While we all want that hot girl summer moment, it is also important to be that hot sustainable girl this summer.
Take a look at these tips to have a cute, sustainable summer this year and every summer to come!
Land and Sand Umbrella
Protect yourself from the sun while protecting the beach with these beautiful land and sand umbrellas made with Recycled Plastic Bottle fabric called Repreve® that offers UPF 50+. The sweet tassels are 100% cotton, and the hardware is made from recycled plastic. They also come with a super easy assemble click-in pole mechanism, and it’s rust-resistant. The perfect addition to a day at the beach.
Eco-Friendly Beach Towels
I love beach towels, setting them up on the sand, taking cute pics while laying down enjoying the sunshine on my skin (do not forget sunscreen!) Beach towels are a huge part of summer, am I right? It is time to buy a beach towel, but hear me out. You can stay dry and sustainable with these brands that offer cute, eco-friendly beach towels while implementing fair and sustainable practices.
Here are some of my favorite eco-friendly beach towels brands.
💙 Boll & Brach Organic Cotton Beach Towels
💙LinenCasa’s Linen Beach Towels
💙 Normadix Recycled Polyester Beach Towels
Sustainable Beach Chairs
I am all about comfort; even at the beach, I want to be comfortable to enjoy my experience as much as possible. So, a beach chair is on my checklist for the beach every time. I was so excited to find a brand making sustainable beach chairs.
Unfortunately, truckloads of plastic get dumped into our oceans every day. However, there is always something good since a fantastic company called LowTides uses this ocean plastic to create their collection of Sandbar Low Chairs, Dune Tall Chairs & Gully Child Chairs - and the prints are so fun! For their newest collection, they collaborated with award-winning designer Molly Hatch. These chairs are very easy to carry with their two back straps. They also have two cup holders to enjoy some refreshing drinks while looking at the waves.
Igloo Repreve Coolers
Another beach must! Snacks! After a nice swim and playing volleyball, a nice cold drink and snacks are necessary. Pack your delicious food and drinks in this cute and sustainable cooler by Igloo repreve coolers.
Their company has started using more eco-friendly materials with their products. These coolers are great because they are made from recycled plastic bottles, but it comes as a tote that is so much easier to carry to the beach.
The REPREVE Avery Tote bag repurposes nine post-consumer plastic bottles, and it’s leak-resistant, antimicrobial & easy to wipe clean. There is an extra dry pocket in there to stash the little things.
There's one thing you can never have too many of - sunglasses. I have a pair of sunglasses in nearly every color that goes with my outfit. It isn't good, I know. I always promise "no more sunglasses." Let's just say I have not kept that promise, but let me tell you about this brand.
AKILA Eyewear is designed to last & handcrafted from eco-friendly plant-based cellulose acetate. Cellulose acetate is a natural bioplastic made from the fibers of cotton or wood pulp. This compound is then mixed with various colored dyes, block cast, then sliced into sheets, or chipped into tiny color pellets. The final product is biodegradable and renewable.
Buy a Pair, Plant a Tree
AKILA Eyewear plants a tree for each pair of glasses sold on our website in partnership with Eden Reforestation Projects. Eden Reforestation Projects reduces extreme poverty and restores healthy forests by employing local people to plant millions of trees every year.
