As active parents, we’re excited that warm weather has finally decided to visit us (and here’s hoping it stops raining for a few minutes so we can stay outdoors to enjoy it!). Now that Spring has sprung and Summer is on the way, here are a few of our favorites for moms on the go.
Save the Fishies Water Bottle (Sand Cloud)
Sand Cloud, an environmentally aware company that donates 10% of its profits to #SaveTheFishes (to help protect and preserve marine life) offers a wide array of items that are sustainable, adorable, and environmentally friendly. From super useful items mom will love like reusable glass bottles with beautiful and fun designs on them to metal straws that you can take anywhere (avoid those unnecessary plastic ones), and from soft towels with lovely artwork to organic tees and tanks, and more. Prices vary. https://www.sandcloud.com
Yoga Gear (Slightly Buddha)
Yoga lover? Us too. We hit the mat almost daily and are 100% convinced that it’s one of the best ways to center yourself and enjoy a few minutes of peace. Slightly Buddha is a yoga company for yoga lovers, by yoga lovers. Everything on their site is simple, pretty, and expresses the ideas of living a Zen lifestyle. They produce, as they put it, “well-made, cute clothes” that offer value to the customer. As the owner describes the collection, “Slightly Buddha is a manifestation of my love for yoga, art and clothes.” The clothing is soft and comfortable, gracefully designed, and easy to mix and match. They’re also perfect for hitting a class or running errands. Pay attention to the photos and the reviews, as they’re honest and helpful when choosing your size. https://www.slightlybuddha.com
Underwire Bras (Title Nine)
Title Nine has everything the active woman needs, from running gear to swimwear to undergarments and more. Dresses that move with you, skirts that shake the rain off, leggings that actually stay in place. We can’t say enough good things about the company, which is run by amazing women for women, so they know what women want and need. We recently tried out the Roadster Convertible Underwire Bra and the Cuz She Say’s So Underwire Bra and we’re in love. Both are extremely comfortable and keep everything where it needs to be, even during vigorous workouts. The company is so passionate about their bras, they even have a program to help get them to girls in underprivileged communities. They know it’s hard to perform your best when you’re being hindered, and that’s pretty cool. Prices vary. https://www.titlenine.com

You’ll find the styles mom loves, and that she can rely on not to fall apart on her. As if that weren’t enough, Mountain Khakis is a company that cares. They’re Fair Trade Certified, members of the Sustainable Apparel Coalition, and their products are organic, biodegradable, and use only materials and production methods that are safe, sustainable, and environmentally friendly. Bottom line: you can be tough and rugged and still look beautiful at the same time, all while being environmentally responsible. Prices vary. https://www.mountainkhakis.com
