Having fun in the sun is one of the most anticipated and fulfilling aspects of summer: longer days, warmer nights, beach trips, hikes, bike rides, outdoor fitness routines, parties and picnics. It’s a vibrant, exciting time of year full of enjoyable activities and easy relaxation.
Many of us wind up spending a decent amount of time outside in the summer, meaning more exposure to the sun’s intense rays and potential all day/all night rooftop bar crawls. Lucky for you, we have a solution for the season’s depleting temptations, and a giveaway to boot!
At Hyde we are passionate about maintaining a steady connection to the earth (sthira, or sturdiness) alongside a soft carbon footprint (sukha, or sweetness). We practice this by choosing organic cotton, which eliminates the chemicals that are spread throughout the air and water runoff via one of the world’s most sprayed and contaminated crops. When you decide to wear Hyde, you are supporting the movement for a more sustainable method of growing and purchasing cotton. Plus it’s breathable and comfortable, making it the perfect gear for your summer yoga practice and outdoor sweat sessions.
Our friends at Goddess Garden are also committed to the environment by choosing eco-conscious, clean ingredients for organic sunscreen and skincare products. What we wear on our bodies is just as important as the products we put on or in our bodies, which is why we love this company’s mission to care for their customers and the environment. Goddess Garden believes “in the power of nature – how it can move us, inspire us, and protect us as a people.” What better way to protect our skin and the planet than to wear organic sunscreen while enjoying more time in nature? When you choose to feed your skin nourishing ingredients, you’ll avoid both painful sunburns and side effects from harmful, hormone-disrupting chemicals (which not only enters your skin, but can also affect whatever body of water you find yourself floating in this summer).
When GoMacro co-founder and mother Amelia was diagnosed with breast cancer, she and daughter Jola converted to a Macrobiotic lifestyle. Amelia is now living and cancer free. Jola and Amelia created MacroBars in their kitchen on the family farm with simple, quality ingredients. When they realized how delicious the bars tasted, they began to sell across the West Coast, and have continued to make them at the family farm in Viola, WI using the same ingredients. GoMacro has recently launched its new superfood line, Thrive, made with ancient seeds including hemp hearts, quinoa and sprouted flax. All of the unique flavors are certified USDA organic, non-GMO project verified, gluten-free certified, vegan certified, kosher verified, and soy-free. Thrive is a great, low-glycemic option with essential fatty acids and prebiotic fiber – perfect for summer snacking.
