Hats! Try this hip California Rising ‘We Are One’ Hat (shown here) which features breathable hemp, soft brushed organic cotton jersey, canvas with locally grown, milled and knitted organic cotton all dyed with low impact dyes. California Rising is a member of 1% For the Planet. I also like this visor from the Sierra Club, simply white and all organic.
Wear sun protection with that bikini~ When I go for a swim I always look for good sun protection that is also cool in the water. Alba Botanica has created a Hawaiian Sun line. The tropics are filled with abundant life glowing in all directions and Alba is on a mission to harness the healing power of tropical botanicals while combining important SPF protection. These products feature special blends of organic tropical plant extracts known to be restorative and healing, they say it will “protect your skin while transporting your soul! I like the green tea sunscreen and as I mentioned previously, green tea is known for antioxidants that demonstrate protection from uv sun damage and prevention of oxidative stress. Applying green tea to the skin reduces the number of sunburn cells.
Find some sweet shades ~ The launch of Eco-stiletto fills us in on the iWood shades which are truly eco-rose-colored glasses—“these are made of sustainable hardwood, with no VOCs!”
