Lara Lightfoot

While we’re prepping for a beach season ahead, there are small yet significant changes we can make for a more sustainable summer. So we’ve gone digging and found the best eco-friendly products to pack with your swimmers this season.

Here are just a few of our favourite essential items that have a more positive impact on our beautiful planet.

Lo Bros Not Soda Lemon

A summer sip to clean up our seas

A new Lo Bros drink – Not Soda – has landed just in time for summer, and for every (zero sugar) fizzy can sold, two plastic bottles will be cleaned up from our oceans.

Every year, up to 34 billion plastic bottles enter the ocean, which is why Lo Bros Not Soda has joined forces with marine waste removal not-for-profit Seven Clean Seas in a mission to clean up our seas.

Next time you find your way to the beach, pop into any independent Supermarket, such as Ritchies and Drakes, to pick up an ice-cold Not Soda to quench your thirst.
