Okay, so we know the last year has been TRYING. And we know that some of us have forgone our travel for safety reasons. But, no matter when you make it to the beach or the pool or the backyard inflatable wading pool, we’ve got you covered (literally and figuratively) with this incredible stash of goodies to help you Pack Your Eco-Friendly Beach Bag.


Eco Friendly Beach Bag giveaway: Meet the brands

From sunscreen to swimwear, from beach towel to beach-worthy nails, we’ve got it all—organically speaking, of course!

Eco Friendly Beach Bag: Sea Bags 

Handcrafted from recycled sails of the working waterfront of Portland, Maine, Sea Bags are the definition of eco friendly. And, THEY’RE SO CUTE. I mean, whooda thunk that a sail could be repurposed into a tote bag that’s just screaming to be taken to the beach?

We shopped the entire collection and chose The Wharf Tote. We love its white aesthetic and simple detailing. This tote is built to stand the test of time via rugged sail cloth and double stitching. The handle is designed with shorter straps for hand carrying (although I can totally sling it over my shoulder too). Some additional details we love include the large side pockets, inside zip pocket, the metal top latch and these hand-spliced hemp rope handles. It’s also machine washable. LOVE IT ALL.

One winner will receive the Sea Bags Wharf Tote, worth $195.

Coyuchi Mediterranean Beach Towel

Coyuchi Mediterranean towels are traditional lightweight Turkish bath towels with a high/low weave for excellent absorption. This gorgeous fabric is woven from yarn-dyed organic cotton and edged in hand-knotted fringe. Does it get better? Or cuter?!

Oh, yeah. They’re made from 100% organic cotton, woven in the Aegean region of Turkey AND they are also GOTS and MADE SAFE Certified. Use this as an oversized blanket to lay on or to pat dry after taking a cool dip.

One winner will get the Coyuchi Mediterranean Towel, worth $68.

Hackwith HDH Basics Reversible Scoop Linen Dress + $100 Giftcard 

What do you love more than a handmade, sustainable outfit? Few things, if you’re me.

EVERYTHING in the Hackwith Design House catalog is made sustainably and ethically in their St. Paul, MN studio, and is offered in sizes ranging from XS through Plus 4. I love the simplicity of their offerings, which makes it so easy to slip a few items into your shopping bag because you know these will last forever and not go out of style. 

Plus, LOOK AT THESE SWIMSUITS. They use eco-friendly fabrics like Lyocell and cotton and their pieces are made to order to reduce waste. Plus, I love seeing the size inclusion displayed in their options + marketing. Love love love.

One winner will get the Reversible Scoop Linen Dress and a $100 giftcard to shop for a swimsuit.

Laurel Skin Sun Body Oil

If you’ve been hanging around TNK for any period of time, you know I’m in love with Laurel. Biodynamic, impeccably sourced, plant-powered, this line is skincare at its finest. Laurel is the definition of slow beauty.

Based out of Sausalito, California, founder Laurel works side by side with local artisan farmers to procure over 150 plants each season.

Sun Body Oil is a go-to this time of year. It’s a body serum and moisturizer packed with nutrients and antioxidants to be used before and after sun exposure. Every single ingredient chosen for this blend has been clinically studied or used historically for its ability to assist in preventing UV induced oxidative damage or their ability to repair damage after too much sun exposure.

One winner will receive a bottle of Sun Body Oil, worth $90.

Love Sun Body Sunscreen Bundle

See? We’ve got you covered when it comes to sun protection. Love Sun Body 100% Natural Origin Mineral Sunscreens are the first and only sunscreens in the U.S. certified by Ecocert Cosmos Natural and have been clinically tested hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic and are reef safe.

Not only that, but Love Sun Body meets the regulatory requirements of the FDA OTC Monograph System and the European Commission’s recommendation on UVA protection. That means the products are made with the safest UVA and UVB filters—non-nano zinc oxide, titanium dioxide (in the SPF 50), and plant-based moisturizers. They blend evenly, have a moisturizing matte finish, and are water-resistant (80 minutes). Family-friendly and easy to use, these SPFs just work and are a responsible choice for sun protection.

One winner will receive the Love Sun Body Full Size Unscented Body Sunscreen SPF 50 and Full Size Face Sunscreen SPF 30, worth $79.

Dazzle Dry Oh My! Mini Mani Kit

We’ve really been talking a LOT about nontoxic nails on TNK as of late and that’s because WE’RE IN LOVE WITH THE MORE NATURAL BRANDS WE’VE FOUND. Including Dazzle Dry, which is our top pick for a better-for-you gel mani. It’s hypoallergenic, vegan and the brand plants one tree for every retail order placed.

Okay, so when you use this whole system (and you do have to use the 4-step system), your at-home mani will last up to 14 days!!!

This super cute travel kit gives you the nail system, plus a hot red color in Oh My!, one of the shades we predicted would be an IT color for spring 2021
