Eco essentials for your UK staycation

Our favourite eco essentials for your holidays at home

We may not be able to sail off to warmer climates this summer but this has encouraged us all to get involved in a 'Staycation' or two. Whether it's a mini-festival in a field or an escape to the coast, we've got you covered! We've listed our favourite eco holiday essentials that are either recycled, made by small independent companies or use natural ingredients.

We've put together some eco staycation looks from the items that have been staples in our luggage for a while now, as well as some products from up and coming brands that are leading the way in environmental alternatives. All the Burnt Soul pieces we've featured are from our Eco collection too. The Life Lycra used to make our eco range is made from yarn using regenerated fishing nets, carpet fluff and plastic waste and we'll be adding more prints very soon!

Read more on why we think plastic is the future of sustainable fashion.

When you buy a piece of Burnt Soul, you’re not just investing in a ridiculously fun item of clothing that makes you feel fabulous and inspires magical memories (although that is a big part of it!), you’re investing in a company that invests in its staff and cares about its impact on the planet.
