SOME­THING YOU SHOULD KNOW: OUT­DOOR PREP

Athleisure - - News -

It's time to get ready for the best time of the year - the weather is warmer and you get the chance to be out­side all the time! With that said, you want to make sure that you are pro­tected from the el­e­ments.

Be­ing out­doors is al­ways fun, but swat­ting in­sects isn't! Al­though there are a lot of op­tions, they in­clude sticky sprays, smelly can­dles or harm­ful top­i­cal chem­i­cals! Halo, from Ther­ma­cell, al­lows your back­yard, sport­ing event, pic­nic and other lo­ca­tions with a 15 x 15 Mos­quito Pro­tec­tion Zone in min­utes! It's si­lent, vir­tu­ally odor free and there are no open flames. The 48 hour fuel sys­tem uses up to 4 bu­tane car­tridges at once. The ZoneCheck sys­tem al­lows you to check your unit's sta­tus.

We're a big be­liever in Safe Sun (UVA/ UVB pro­tec­tion) but we need to be mind­ful of prod­ucts that are "reef safe" as well! Ac­cord­ing to the EWG, an es­ti­mated 25 - 60 mil­lion bot­tles worth of sun­screen chem­i­cals wash off into coral reef ar­eas each year. About 25 per­cent of sun­screen ap­plied to the skin is re­leased into the wa­ter within 20 min­utes of sub­mer­sion. When we shower, these chem­i­cals wash off our skin and can pol­lute wastew­a­ter that ends up in the ocean as well.

Aus­tralian Gold’s New Botan­i­cal Sun­screen Min­eral Lo­tions, is reef-friendly, with an­tiox­i­dant rich for­mu­las free of Oxy­ben­zone, Parabens, Phtha­lates, Petro­la­tum, PABA, SLS, Dyes and Oils. Their non-chem­i­cal sun­screen lo­tions have a pow­dery-clean feel and aren't greasy which is great!

The last es­sen­tial pro­tec­tion comes from Koru Swimwear, an eco swim and sport line whose fab­rics come from sus­tain­able and or­ganic fab­rics.
