Summer life hacks for our eco-conscious babes

Let's be honest, beach days can sometimes be a bit of a hassle. From lugging around heavy bags to dealing with sandy snacks, it's easy to get overwhelmed. But we got you! Simpl Swim has some sustainable life hacks that will make your beach experience Simpl. 

1. Sand-Free Snacks

Snacking at the beach is a must, but nobody likes a mouthful of sand with their sandwich. To keep your snacks sand-free, try using resealable containers or mason jars. Not only will this keep the sand out, but it's also an eco-friendly alternative to single-use plastic bags.

2. Cooling Mist

When the sun is blazing, staying cool is essential. Fill a spray bottle with water and a few drops of your favourite essential oil (we recommend peppermint for that extra refreshing kick). Give yourself a spritz whenever you need a quick cooldown. Plus, you'll smell amazing!

3. DIY Beach Towel Bag

Why carry a separate bag for your beach towel when you can turn it into a bag itself? Lay your towel flat, fold one side towards the center, then fold the other side over it. Roll it up tightly, secure it with a couple of hair ties, and you've got yourself a towel bag. It's perfect for carrying your sunscreen, book, and other beach essentials.

4. Natural Sunscreen

Protecting your skin from the sun is crucial, but many sunscreens contain harmful chemicals that can harm the ocean's delicate ecosystem. Opt for a natural sunscreen that is reef-safe and free from harmful ingredients like oxybenzone and octinoxate. Your skin and the environment will thank you!

5. Reusable Water Bottle

Staying hydrated is key, but buying single-use plastic water bottles is a big no-no. Invest in a reusable water bottle and fill it up before heading to the beach. You'll save money and help reduce plastic waste. Plus, you can choose a bottle that match your sustainable Simpl Swim bikini!

Remember, every little action counts when it comes to protecting our beautiful planet. So grab your Simpl set, slather on some natural sunscreen, and get ready for a summer full of sun, sand, and sustainability!
