Get One, Give One: Soap with Hope

Smell sweet and feel even sweeter about the mission you’re supporting with Soapbox’s naturally derived bath and body products. For every item sold, the company donates a bar of soap to someone in need. Plus, products are made with 100% recyclable packaging. Try the Coconut Oil Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner, pictured, after a day in the sun. 

Beat the Heat: Righteous Gelato 

Righteous Gelato makes flavorful small-batch gelato and sorbet without artificial ingredients. The cherry on top? It’s giving back along the way by donating 1% of its revenue to charity, using sustainable packaging, and diverting 95% of its waste away from landfills. Cool off with a refreshing scoop of Dairy Free Raspberry Lime Sorbetto or Dairy Free Blueberry Limeade Sorbetto, pictured. 

Getaway for Good: Better Leather Bags

Parker Clay sells quality handmade sustainable leather bags, wallets, and other accessories. Premium, full-grade Ethiopian leather is ethically sourced from food animals and is crafted with the environment in mind. The company employees at-risk Ethiopian women, paying living wages and providing benefits. Take the San Ysidro Weekender, pictured, on your next trip. 

Sustainable Sipping: Finer Wine

In the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley, California, Trefethen Family Vineyards is among the first wineries to use carbon capture technology as well as to fully offset its electricity usage with on-site solar power, earning the 2022 California Green Medal Environmental Award. Pour a glass of S.I.N. Summer in Napa Rosé, pictured, and kick back with a good book. 

Poolside for the Planet: Swimmingly Good Bathing Suits

Period underwear company Pantys offers stylish swimsuits for comfortable, sustainable, leak​-proof protection in the water. Bonus: Pantys’ products minimize environmental impact, so they’re carbon-neutral and made with biodegradable fabrics that decompose in three years. Take the Triangle One-Piece, pictured, for a swim.
