One of the finer purposes in life may be participating in the preservation of our planet. Let’s do more than belong; let’s participate by contributing a share of our efforts to the greater good. Let’s do more than care; let’s help. Let’s do more than believe; let’s practice. Sacrificing our attachments to the all obscure sense of “fairness” and seeing beyond it, we become kind. The World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF South Africa) shares their line of Ladies Summer Must-Have Items that are local, sustainable and support conservation.





This independent conservation organisation assumes the mission to stop the degradation of the earth’s natural environment and to build a future in which humans live in harmony with nature. WWF’s global network of over 5 million supporters active in over 100 countries conserves the world’s biological diversity, ensures the sustainable use of renewable natural resources, and promotes the reduction of pollution and wasteful consumption.





As the summer season draws closer, we can all start to look forward to enjoying some time outdoors, soaking up the sunshine and of course, getting into the spirit of the festive season. Need to stock up on some summer essentials to ensure that you are ready to have some fun in the sun? Why not consider some green goodies that help support our natural heritage?

From recycled plastic t-shirts to handbags made of recycled PET bottles and colourful reusable water bottles to keep you hydrated, these summer must-haves are perfect to pack for holiday, beach trips, to and from the office or, a casual lunch.





We live in a megadiverse country with some of the world’s richest biodiversity. WWF encourages people to get out and experience the beauty of South Africa’s natural environment. The organisation works in a range of areas to protect our natural resources – oceans, land, wildlife – so that we can continue to benefit from everything nature provides us with such as food, energy and fresh water.








Among the eco-friendly products:

  • Functional and stylish beach bags made from waste fabric that would typically go into landfills.
  • Bold and beautifully designed recycled plastic t-shirts.
  • An on-trend Bella handbag made from recycled PET bottles.
  • Reusable silicone straws that can be easily cleaned, folded and stored away.
  • Colourful reusable water bottles to keep you hydrated: 450ml and 580ml.
