Reusable Water Bottle Staying hydrated is imperative when you are doing a workout.  Especially, if nature is your gym, it can get pretty hot outside.  Always have your reusable bottle on standby.    2. Reef Safe Sunscreen Hello sunshine!

Nature is great for rejuvenating the mind, body and soul.   It is that time of year, summer is just on the horizon and nature is calling us all to spend a little more time outdoors.  Now is the perfect time for many of us to start getting into shape.  Maybe our goal or motivation is to be “bikini ready” for the summer.  That being said, at the end of the day fitness is a lifestyle and should go beyond summer.  With this in mind, fitness should be focused on getting your body in the best shape possible with your overall goal being set on being healthy.  It shouldn’t focus …

Sage Larock: Redefining Fashion Upcycling Plastic Into Swimwear

Behind all of the glitz and glamour of the fashion world is an ugly side.  There is an incredible amount of textile waste and pollution produced by the fashion industry.  “It is the second highest global polluter of clean water because of its use of toxic heavy metals, formaldehyde, and other toxic compounds” (Sage Larock).  In an era of conscious consumers, and a growing movement to pass on plastic consumers are evaluating their consumption habits.  Some are becoming more interested in how clothing is made.  As a result, they are seeking out sustainably and ethically made clothing.  Sustainable fashion is a game changer, it is redefining fashion and redesigning the way clothing is made.  In particular,  Sage Larock  is founded upon being a sustainable luxury line of swimwear and apparel made in Los Angeles, California.  The ethos of their sustainable clothing is making beautiful swimwear that is inspired by the sea and designed to be ocean friendly.  At the heart of their environmentally responsible approach is reclaiming ocean plastic debris and transforming it into fabric.  …
