There are few things that top having a relaxing summer pool day. Especially when it's an eco-friendly pool day.

With super-hot summer days becoming the norm (did you hear about those sky-high temps in the Pacific Northwest?), it's inevitable that we'll be hitting the pool to escape the heat. But before you dive into that cool, chlorinated water, why not invest in a few sustainable pool day essentials to make it even better?

From sustainable swimsuits to natural sunscreens, these planet-friendly products can help you make a splash the next time you go swimming.

5 Eco-Friendly Pool Day Essentials

1. Genusee Sunglasses, Prices Vary

Look cool and protect your eyes at the same time while wearing these sunglasses from Genusee. Made from 100 percent post-consumer recycled water bottles, these shades are good to the planet without sacrificing style. (Want more sustainable picks? We've got 'em here!)

A day at the pool requires a good towel. Luckily, this one is also sustainable. Anaskela's towels are made with recycled PET bottles, are ultra absorbent, and are thin enough to fold into the palm of your hand.

You may already be familiar with Girlfriend Collective for the brand's sustainable, size-inclusive activewear. Now, they're delving into swimwear, too. Girlfriend Collective's swimsuits are made with ECONYL regenerated nylon and come in a variety of styles and sizes.

A good sunscreen can be good for your skin and the environment. Take Cocokind's Daily SPF, for example. This reef-safe, mineral-based sunscreen is formulated with ingredients like zinc oxide and blue phytoplankton so you can swim the day away without worrying about sunburns.

This bag by Beach'd is so cute that you'll want to take it to more than just the pool. Made responsibly in fair trade factories from globally-sourced and natural materials, this woven bag will make you look and feel good while carrying all your pool day essentials.
