"Smell the sea, and feel the sky. Let your soul and spirit fly". Van Morrison
I love summer. Always have. I love the long days, spending hours outside. The happy people (summer is easier on the soul, isn’t it?). Swimming in the sea or sitting by the pool is so relaxing. I love summer lightweight cloths. Sandals. Straw hats… And I absolutely love summer fruits – Peach, Watermelon, Mango, Grapes... Name it! Now that Summer is here and it's official, let's welcome it together! Here are 5 ideas for a conscious, Eco-friendly & happy summer we've collected for you. So let's get started :) Hydrating.

4. Use safe sunscreen! For your own personal health and that of your family's, we always recommend using sunscreen on a daily basis. The thing is some of the chemicals in traditional sunscreens are harmful for the environment so we suggest you find a sunscreen that is environmental friendly too.
Agedrea have sunscreen that is organic, healthy & earth friendly.
5. Try new recipes with seasonal ingredients. For me, part of becoming more conscious is paying attention to what I eat. In the summer, I eat different, lighter, cooler meals. So I usually check the Pinterest for ideas. We've gathered a few fresh and easy reciepes our summer board – you are welcome to check them out!
