We agree with earth lovers everywhere that Earth day should be every day. Regardless, the planet gets a single day (#earthday) annually for official recognition and since it happens to fall within Spring time (for the northern half of the planet), here are some colorful, earth loving options to sport when celebrating.

Some brands are simply inspired by the earth while others are also active in protecting it. Those are the brands we love. Meet Teeki, which is a conscious brand that responsibly produces unique apparel for an active lifestyle. All of their products are made from recycled and sustainable materials.

Maaji

In a sea of swimwear, how do we select a brand. You look beyond the label and focus on what else they have to offer besides appearance.

Maaji is a swim and active wear brand that produces ethically made apparel and strives to protect the ocean through their #earthwarriors initiative. They team up with ocean protecting organizations like Help 2 Oceans Foundation to clean up beaches and oceans as well as encourage #earthwarriors to take action.

Affirmats

Part of yoga practice is being in an environment that will allow you to zen out and focus on your body with no distractions or stressors. That environment includes the equipment you use for yoga session such as yoga mats. Now Affirmats are not your average yoga brand. Their mission is to create quality, sustainable products as well as inspire yogis with daily affirmations.

The mats come in assorted colors that are attractive yet not too loud that it disturbs your zen.

Cornelia Sun

What once may have been associated with only certain ethnicities and cultures are now a staple in any closet. I am referring to Kimonos, and there are two sisters in Sweden creating one-of-kind pieces with ethical and sustainable processes. Cornelia Sun is a socially conscious apparel brand that strives for zero waste.

What they are saying

“…Every single item is a unique one-of-a-kind and our collections are handmade by love in small scale production. Today, all our timeless designs are created out of 100% up-cycled textiles that previously have been worn as saris by women in Eastern Asia…”

Their pieces comes in bright, colorful, and exotic prints that are bound to capture attention. Make sure to say that your Kimono is eco-friendly when you are asked where you got it from.

Hydro Flask

Part of reducing waste is to use reusable products versus one-time use products such as plastic water bottles. Quality, functional, and sustainable drinking bottles help reduce waste. One popular brand, Hydro Flask, not only produces quality bottles but also contributes its profits to protecting nature.

What they are saying

According to purposeoverprofits.org, “Hydro Flask manages its own charity organization, Parks for All. Parks for All gives grants up to 30,000 dollars to parks around the United States in order to fund preservation efforts and encourage people to enjoy the beauty of our nation’s natural landscape. They’ve made significant strides in protecting the environment.”
