5 Green Products You Need for Summer

July 01, 2021

Summer is here! As we begin to spend more time outdoors, it’s a good time to stock up on eco-friendly summer essentials. Give back to the Earth what it gives us. Be aware of summer eco-conscious items that are also better for us, as well as the earth. Without harsh chemicals and parts that aren’t biodegradable. Whether you’re heading to the beach, camping, or just the backyard, here are some easy swaps to have a greener summer.


We all want to spend some time in the sun right now, so pick a sunscreen that is safe and gentle for your kids and the environment. These babyganics sunscreens physically block the sun’s rays and are reef safe, made without oxybenzone and octinoxate. Formulated without: PABA, phthalates, parabens, fragrances or nanoparticles. The smaller sunscreen stick is perfect for smaller areas like faces and ears.

Bug Repellent

Mosquitos bites are a bummer but no one likes being covered in a veil of chemicals. Try these mosquito bracelets. These non toxic bracelets are made from natural substances such as Citronella, Lemongrass, and Geraniol Essential Oils. The bracelets can be used by babies, adults or pets safely without the sprays.

Reusable Grilling Skewers

Summer is the time when everyone wants to start up the grill but the wooden skewers are wasteful being one-time use. It’s also a hassle to soak them and they splinter. These stainless steel reusable skewers are flat and wide. The flat barbecue sticks prevent the food from rotating or moving when flipping over and no need to soak in advance.

Reusable Water Bottles

Keep hydrated this summer and reduce single-use plastic water bottles. These reusable ones are an ideal alternative to purchasing disposable water bottles, without giving up on convenience and saving money. The fun patterns make it easy to tell apart and easy to pack for summer adventures.

Toys Made from Recycled Plastic or Stronger Safe Plastic to Last a Lifetime

Pails and shovels are essential parts of beach play, but instead of getting an inexpensive set that will last only a season try these other alternatives. This Green Toys Sand Play Set is Made from curbside collected milk containers. Are made without phthalates or BPA. Recycled plastic saves energy and reduces greenhouse gasses. Or try these Spielstabil sand toys that are manufactured in Germany using safe, strong, flexible ABS plastic. They are PVC free, Phthlate free and BPA Free. They are colorfast and will retain their vibrant colors even after years of sun exposure. They are indestructible, long-lasting designed for comfort (no sharp edges) to last many summers to come.

How you enjoy our mother earth during the summer months, be sure to be aware of the things we use that can affect our environment. Choose green and eco friendly summer options that are better for us and the planet. For more ideas on having green backyard get-togethers check out the last post.
