There’s no reason you can’t hit the sand and the surf with a beach bag full of eco-friendly goodies! Stay safe in the sun and have fun with these feel good fashion and beauty items for a day at the beach.
The Swimwear: The most important part of your beach day look – the swimsuit! Think eco-friendly here with soy dyes and suits that are handmade. Try La Isla Bonita Swimwear – each piece is handmade using organic cotton and soy-based dyes. Then cover up with a 95% organic cotton tank top from H&M.
The Accessories: A chic summer hat is a must! It keeps the sun out of our eyes, protects your face, and hides not so fabulous hair days. We like scouring Etsy for vintage finds or grabbing timeless ones that are sure to last like ProPueblo’s Classic Lady Hat which is woven from recycled fibers. Don’t forget the sunscreen! Check out our Summer Sun Protection blog for tips on picking the right sunscreen.
The Toys: If you’re traveling with kids to the beach, or just indulging your inner child, play smart with BPA free, corn based toys. These pretty ones from Zoe b are all organic and biodegradable just in case they accidentally wash out to sea. For more grown up fun, grab an Eco Saucer.
The Bag: Last but not least, the bag you stash all your goodies in! The most eco-friendly thing to do is to reuse a bag that’s already in your closet. But if you’re bag-less or in need of an update, try an organic canvas bag like this cute one from Dandelion complete with extra pockets. Another option, this super chic Guadeloupe Flower Tote from Mar Y Sol which is crafted from sustainably sourced sea grass by artisans in Madagascar. Don’t forget to stash your reusable water bottle too! These pretty glass ones come with silicon sleeves for the perfect grip: Life Factory Glass Bottle.
