An Ever-Reliable Pair of Sunglasses 

Think of these as the sunglasses that not only look good, but also do good for the environment. This re-interpretation of the classic Lowdown sunglasses earns its eco badge from  recycled post-consumer water bottles that were used to create the frame. They come with a microfiber bag from plastic bottles and 100 percent recycled packaging. Lowdown 2 CORE Sunglasses, smithoptics.com; Milo Polo, prana.com

A Pair of Light and Airy Shorts 

Breathable is the name of the game when it comes to choosing your summer shorts, and these are made to keep you comfortable. Throw in a UPF of 40 and you get sun protection that doesn’t require re-application. Cool Mesh Eco Shirt and Alpine Shorts, royalrobbins.com; Unstandard Stripe Crew Light Socks, darntough.com

A Pair of White Sneakers

These eco Classic CC sneakers—their EVO midsole and outsole are made from recycled plastic bottles—are the minimalist footwear of choice to tie your entire weekend look together. Style them with cuffed joggers to show a hint of bronzed ankle. Convoy S/S Henley and Bradbury Joggers, oliversapparel.com; Classic CC Shoes, kswiss.com

A Shirt in a Bold Color 

We at Organic Spa magazine encourage injecting color into your wardrobe as often as possible, and summer is the perfect time to show off your shirts in all their attention-grabbing flavors.

If brown and green are your go-tos for fall, try switching to yellow (or more precisely, saffron) now. It has the same earthy vibe as the two. Broderick Shirt, prana.com; Dipsea Sunglasses, sunski.com 

A Pair of Shorts You Can Run In 

There’s nothing better than going for a run in the morning when streets are empty and the air you breathe doesn’t feel sticky. Cover several miles with these technical shorts that combine a recycled polyester outer with a stretchy merino wool inner. MicroTec Crew Tee and Hydro Lite Spectator Jacket, freecountry.com; Cool-Lite Strike Lite Shorts, icebreaker.com; Spire Shoes, 361usa.com

A Pair of Go-Anywhere Sandals 

These sandals are made for a socially distanced hike in the trails with a lightweight molded footbed for that all-important cushioning. Not a fan of going outdoors? No problem; the sole offers the same traction whether it’s uneven pavement or a patio floor. Desert Pucker S/S Shirt and Billy Goat Shorts, royalrobbins.com; Yucatan Sandal, ecco.com

An Organic Cotton Henley

This henley should be your T-shirt style of choice until Labor Day, with its lived-in feel offering an extra level of cool compared to its crew-neck cousin. Open up a few buttons when things get a little stuffy—just make sure you trimmed your chest hair beforehand. Primo S/S Henley, toadandco.com; Bridger Jean, prana.com
