Eco Lyloh sarongs are made from 100 per cent organic cotton jersey and allow you to be creative, turning a luxuriously smooth fabric into nine different outfits. The multi-purpose sarongs are dyed and hand-painted at a natural dye house in Bali, using mostly locally grown plants, flowers and vegies, while the jersey comes from the Netherlands.

The Planet surfwear label from classic surf brand Rip Curl combines their easygoing beach design style with eco-innovation. The bikinis and boardshorts contain almost 90 per cent ‘recycled polyester’ – a material formed from recycled plastic bottles. The hybrid fabric has a soft and supportive texture, like a second skin.
