This month, Amazon launched Amazon Aware, a new line of eco-friendly clothing, skin care, bedding and household products. According to Amazon, all Amazon Aware items — from bed sheets made from 100 percent organic cotton to facial tissues made from recycled paper — boast a carbon neutral certification and are also part of the retailer’s Climate Pledge Friendly initiative, which means they’re certified by one of the retailer’s sustainability certification partners. Amazon also lets you filter by types of eco-friendly measures, including organic products and those made from recycled materials. Also in the eco-friendly apparel space, Select reader favorite brand Allbirds — which recently redesigned its popular Tree Dashers — expanded its sustainable activewear collection Natural Run to include t-shirts, tanks, shorts and leggings made from the brand’s eucalyptus tree fiber and merino wool.

On the skincare end of eco-friendly products, Maui-based sustainable suncare brand Project Reef launched this month with two mineral sunscreens. The brand says it wants to reduce suncare products’ environmental impact by expanding the market for mineral sunscreens — on Oct. 1, 2022, Hawaii’s Maui County will ban the sale of sunscreens with active chemical ingredients, which have a negative impact on marine life. Hawaii already prohibits sale or distribution of chemical sunscreens with oxybenzone and octinoxate ingredients. If Hawaii is on your travel radar this year, we’ve detailed the Malama Hawaii travel program and recommended some mineral sunscreens to take on your trip — and these travel credit cards may be worth considering, along with the best travel card sign-up offers.
Supergoop! introduces the Every. Single. Face. Watery Lotion
Supergoop! — which has earned our recommendations for mineral sunscreen, tinted sunscreen, acne-prone skin sunscreen and more — just launched the all-new Every. Single. Face. Watery Lotion, featuring SPF 50. According to the brand, Every. Single. Face. has a gel-like, watery texture that can provide a more cooling sensation compared to its popular PLAY Everyday Lotion. Supergoop! notes the sunscreen lotion is made specifically for the face (regardless of skin type or skin tone) and can be layered on top of any moisturizer as a final skin care step. Every. Single. Face. is also sweat- and water-resistant for up to 40 minutes and can protect against UV rays, blue light and infrared radiation, the brand says.
