The newly launched Allbirds Zeffer flip flops are more than meets the eye. Sure they looks like traditional beach sandal at first glance, but the eco-conscious brand has used their newly created sustainable sweet foam sole. Derived from renewable sugarcane, not only are the flip flops super lightweight but it's the world’s first carbon negative shoes on the market. - Julia McEwen, fashion and beauty director

Okay, so you probably think you don’t need another striped top in your wardrobe—believe me, I definitely don’t. But hear me out. This one is the perfect slouchy silhouette that you can wear with denim cutoffs or tucked into trousers for a bit of polish. It’s got a blast of colour so it’s a little different than what you already own. And it’s $12.99. So yes, you actually kind of do need this one… - Alexandra Donaldson, fashion and beauty editor
Sustainable Skin Care
I’ve been a bit hesitant about adding retinol to my beauty regimen for fear of my sensitive skin reacting negatively, but this sustainable serum from Biossance features a plant-derived alternative called bakuchiol that offers the same benefits as retinol without the skin irritation or sensitivity. Plus, the fact that it’s totally clean and sustainable is a win in my books! - Linda Cotrina, web producer
