Summer is the season for fun, sun & sustainability. Yes, you read that right. This summer, as we see temps rise to record highs, it’s more important than ever for our fun in the sun to be more planet friendly. From skincare to sunscreen to sunglasses, we’ve rounded up a handful of our favorite eco-friendly finds on Amazon to make your summer more sustainable – all for under $20.
Baebody 14 Day Detox Tea – It’s not only at the beginning of the year when our bodies need a detox. Our detox tea is vegan, cruelty-free and the tea bags are biodegradable, so it does not contribute to plastic pollution. You get 14 tea bags for a 14 day detox for $14.95.
Pro Tip: Drink it iced for an extra refreshing summer drink!
Bamboo Sunglasses - Crafted with highly sustainable materials like natural bamboo and wood for function and fashion, these sunnies block 100% of UVA/UVB rays, and have polarized lenses to reduce glare and protect your peepers. They come in a variety of colors, and at $16.99 it is totally acceptable to purchase multiple pairs of sunglasses to go with different summer looks.
Sun Bum Travel Set – Did you know that many sunscreens contain ingredients that are not only harmful to us, but also harmful to sea life? Not Sun Bum! All Sun Bum formulas are vegan, cruelty-free, reef safe & free of parabens and sulfates. And for just $19.99 this set includes a TSA approved sized sunscreen, SPF lip balm and cool down lotion.
Baebody Travel Eye Gel – Summer is the perfect time for travel! As the world reopens and we begin to (over)pack our bags, swapping to smaller sized skincare is a great way to save some space. Powered by a blend of natural ingredients that are dermatologist-tested, vegan, free of parabens, gluten, sulfates, dyes, fillers & is cruelty-free and non-gmo. Not only is this eye gel kind to the planet, for $9.95 it’s kind to your wallet too.
Bamboo Mason Jar Lid 2-pack- Is it just us, or does drinking out of a mason jar feel more fun? Not only is it more fun, turns out it is more sustainable, and when paired with a bamboo lid and stainless-steel straw, consider yourself a sustainability superstar. This set includes two bamboo mason jar lids, 1 stainless steel straw, a cleaning brush & cotton carrying case for $11.99. All components are BPA, PVC and phthalate free & are compatible with all regular or wide mouth mason jars. Pro tip: pair with your iced detox tea!
Reusable Dog Water Bottle- It should come as no surprise that our furry friends enjoy the summer just as much as us! And since they do not have the luxury of using a mason jar with a bamboo lid & stainless-steel straw, we found the next best thing. The MalsiPree dog water bottle is reusable, leak proof, and made of food safe material. These dog water bottles comes in two size and two colors and range from $14.99-$17.99 so there’s something for everpawdy (see what we did there?)
Foldable Sun Visor- As far as summer accessories go, a sun visor is definitely a staple! Not only do they pair perfectly with virtually every summer look, they protect our faces from overexposure to the sun. Why is this important? Overexposure to sun over time = speeding up the aging process while putting yourself at risk for sun cancer. This cozy sun visor is made of eco-friendly and recyclable materials like 100% pure cotton, and woven paper straw, comes in 2 colors and costs $17.49.
Baebody Hyaluronic Acid- Hydration during the summer months is essential not only for our bodies, but for our skin as well. Enter Hyaluronic Acid: our lightweight serum provides intense hydration, helps the production of collagen while improving skin texture, brightness, and skin elasticity for only $14.45. Not only is this antioxidant rich serum vegan, non-gmo, and contains no parabens, sulfates, dyes or fillers, it comes in a sleek recyclable glass bottle.
Pro tip: upcycle your empty bottle as a mini vase for flowers!
