A well-made skateboard rides the pavement like a wave. The radical Minnow Cureo skateboard from Bureo is a marvel of upcycling. With a deck made entirely from recycled fishing nets, each board saves 30 square feet of harmful netting from entering our precious oceans.
A killer pair of shades is essential on the open water. Opt for ones made with repurposed bamboo over harmful plastic that endanger birds and marine life. SOLO Eyewear pulls off the delicate balance of style and sustainability with flying colors in their lightweight Bamboo Sunglasses.
A trip to the beach requires the perfect bag. Throw your suit, towel, and ECOlunchbox into the Wayfare Duffle by Haiku.

And so are all the convenient pockets they provide for your belongings.
The ocean gives us so much. It is crucial we take care of it as best we can. When it comes to enjoying its bounty, select the “best choice” fish like the ethically harvested Wild Pink Salmon found in Patagonia’s Wild Sockeye Salmon Gift Box. Enjoy the lightly smoked, fully cooked salmon right out of the pouch or warm it up in hot water and serve fancy over rice, grains or greens!
