EVENING STANDARD – How to have a sustainable summer
By Samuel Fishwick
From reef-safe suncream to natural BBQs, and recycled swimwear to cardboard tents — the best season of the year has had a conscious upgrade. Samuel Fishwick has a guide to guilt-free getaways that don’t need to cost the earth

Barbecues, holidays to Mediterranean beaches, swimsuits and suncream are being recalibrated because summer has to be green.
The industry recognises the need for change and Econyl is revolutionary. It’s a yarn created from industrial plastic, waste fabric and fishing nets from oceans and it makes beautiful swimsuits.
