Kayu Beach Bag
The Kayu Beach Bag is perfect for those beach days. Kayu works with cooperatives and artisans, many of whom learned to weave and sew from their mothers. They use locally-sourced and eco-friendly materials including natural straw, sustainably sourced shell and recycled wood. The materials used for the handbags are almost 100% biodegradable -with the exclusion being the hardware and lining. All linings are made from fabrics that are AZO free.

S’well Stainless Steel Water Bottle
The S’well Stainless Steel Water Bottle is at the top of my list. This is the water bottle that I continually spot at the gym and I love the look. The bottle keeps your drinks cold for 24 hours and hot for 12 hours. Each bottle is made from stainless steel and is non-toxic, non-leaching and BPA free. For every bottle sold, S’well will plant one tree through the American Forests Foundation.

WOOED RECLAMINED ROSEWOOD WOODEN SUNGLASSES
WOOED (pronounced “wood”) is a San Francisco based company creating sunglasses and accessories from reclaimed wood or wood that’s been sustainably harvested. I’ve reviewed a pair of these sunglasses and am love with everything about this company. All WOOED products are handmade- yes, that’s right-they make each one of their quirky, interesting sunglasses by hand! Each pair is unique and essentially a piece of art.
prAna Sun Hat
I’ve been wearing prAna for many years. When I took my very first yoga class years ago I was wearing prAna. I remember their tops were trendy and comfortable, with patterns that truly stood out. I still have a few originals in my closet to prove it. Their clothing line is stylish, extremely comfortable and the company emphasizes sustainability.
prAna’s long list of sustainable initiatives is impressive. This is a brand that I was initially drawn to because of style, but knowing that they truly care about our health, the environment and our planet makes wearing the clothing that much more appealing.
Everyone needs a big, floppy straw hat to keep the sun’s harmful rays at bay. The prAna Living Dora Sun Hat is perfect for those hot, sunny, summer days. Enjoy!
Coyuchi Organic Mediterranean Beach Towel
Coyuchi is a home textile company with the greater good in mind. The company makes thoughtfully designed, products that are both friendly to people and the planet. Made from organic cotton, this Coyuchi beach towel is perfect for a day at the beach.
