Eco-Conscious Beach Bag Essentials

Welcoming all you Beach Babes!

This post is a little different, but just as important. Packing the perfect beach bag is crucial to having a stress-free day at the beach. I’ve been there, you’ve been there, we’ve all been there... not having a good pair of sunglasses or forgetting your sunblock can create an unenjoyable time in the sun. However, when choosing your must-have products, thinking about the environment and how we can be sustainableis extremely crucial. We suggest writing these suggestions down, so grab a notepad and get ready for some eco-conscious beach day essentials.

1. Beach Bag. To start, you need to have a beach bag to store all these items in. We highly recommend one that can double and be used as a farmers’market/grocery bag! Here’s a super cute one that features #zerowaste from Amazon the Casablanca Market Moroccan Market BasketWe also suggest some functionable reusable silicone storage bags from Stasher  to store all of your meals and snacks and of course a good Hydo flask!

2. Sun Protection Sunscreen is an obvious must when out in the sun’s harmful rays. We suggest COOLA’S Classic Body Organic Sunscreen Spray with SPF 50 in Fragrance-Free. Head over to ULTA where you can grab their "The Classics Bundle" featuring a body, face and lip combo! 

3. Hair Protection did you know the sun can also damage your hair and scalp? We recommend using COOLA’S Scalp & Hair Mist Organic Sunscreen SPF 30 to protect from the roots to the tips. This can nourish your hair too, thanks to being packed with plant-based antioxidants.
