Our Guide To Packing For A Sustainable Honeymoon
If you are a bride to be or a newlywed and you are planning your honeymoon – congratulations! In this feature, you will find our ethical picks for what to pack. From swimwear to beauty to lingerie – we have you covered!
Thank you to all the brands that made this editorial possible.
If you’d like to market your ethical brand with us, email email@example.com.
Swim - Kōraru
Hopefully you are going somewhere warm and tropical and can pack a selection of swimsuits. Kōraru makes some of our favourite swimsuits – they are chic, comfortable, supportive, and ethically made. All of their pieces are made of ECONYL® regenerated yarn from nylon waste, and their packaging materials are created with a range of new recyclable materials, each with its own amazing story. The Rifu Triangle top paired with the Side Tie Bottoms is a must take as it is the perfect classic bikini. It is doubled for sheer protection and is completely adjustable with the ties. For a one piece option, look no further than Koraru’s Chikyu Belted One-Piece. It has wonderful full coverage in the front and a sexy low-cut back. It has wide straps, which were designed to stay up – even when swimming or on the go. Pair the one piece with some shorts, pants, or a skirt and you have a beautiful outfit for dinner.
Below is our Co-Founder, Cora wearing Kōraru swimwear for her Sustainable Guide to Hudson, NY! – also a perfect honeymoon location!
Lingerie - Understatement Underwear
Lingerie for a honeymoon is obviously essential. Understatement Underwear make some of the comfiest and sexiest bras and underwear on the market. Created in 2017, with the desire to turn an everyday necessity into a statement piece from under to boost the confidence of all women. All their pieces are made completely responsibly – both socially and environmentally. We would pick their Lace Triangle Bralette 001 in Blanche to pair with their Lace Cheeky bottoms in Blanche – the set is so comfortable, light, yet supportive! Another favourite bra of ours is the Lace Bralette Top in the color Mrs. Grey to wear with the Lace Cheeky in the matching color. You can also mix and match the colors to create a different look!
Clothing – Doen
No brand does effortless holiday wear like Doen. Launched in 2016, the brand has been creating beautiful pieces for seven years. They are incredibly transparent about their sustainability and supply chain and have even published their impact report on their website. Their 2030 roadmap is very inspiring, and they are committed to becoming even more sustainable as a brand. Their pieces are perfect for a honeymoon as they are comfortable, sexy, easy to style, and you can easily wear pieces day to night and beach to dinner!
What we are packing –
Sun Protection – Living Libations
A good sunscreen is a must pack for any holiday. The Everybody Loves the Sunshine Zinc Beach Balm from Living Libations is one of our go-to sunscreens because it is reef safe, easy to apply, and beneficial for the skin. The handcrafted portable sun-stick is formulated with sun-harmonizing botanicals along with zinc oxide – our favourite sunblock. It contains beeswax and rich cacao butter, which soothe and moisturize thirsty skin. For post sun care, we love the Sun Dew Vitamin D Crème, which is a unique formula that delivers pure botanicals and nutrients to revitalize, hydrate and sustain your skin’s healthy glow. If you accidentally got a bit too much sun, this cream will instantly calm inflamed skin thanks to its aloe vera, rose hydrosol, seabuckthorn, and lavender oil.
Listen to our REV On Air Podcast episode with Living Libations founder, Nadine Artemis below to discover about everything that goes into Living Libations to make them what they are today!
Sun Hat - Janessa Leoné
Janessa Leoné create high-quality essentials that elevate the everyday and simplify routines. We think Janessa Leoné accessories, but most specifically their packable sun hats are a perfect addition to the honeymoon suitcase. Janessa Leoné are working towards a highly regenerative collection and in the meantime already foster strong and respected relationships with stakeholders and only partner with responsibly managed factories and warehouses.
Jewelry - BaYou with Love
Founded and run by designer, actress and environmentalist Nikki Reed, BaYou with Love creates luxury with a story through hand-crafting fine jewelry using recycled gold, including gold recovered from discarded technology. BaYou with Love are one of REV’s own selected jewelry brands and we love their bright and unique designs for a honeymoon trip. Most specifically their Full Moon Diamond Earrings and Double Diamond Moon Necklace are the perfect way to keep in with the ‘moon’ theme and the designs are sure to sweep your loved one off their feet.
Bronzer - Kjaer Weis
One of REV’s long-time favourite sustainable make-up brand, Kjaer Weis have just come out with their new cream bronzer! Combining their light, simple formulas into a cream bronzer, we just had to include it in this guide as your honeymoon is the perfect place to wear a sun-kissed glow that feels natural and hydrating!
Skincare - Maison Made
Maison Made is a skincare atelier dedicated to providing support and efficacy to the skin through superior Biodynamic® products. Biodynamic® is not only the most difficult regenerative agricultural certification to achieve, but also the most sustainable method of producing the highest quality plant material. Maison Made is our go-to skincare fundaments for the honeymoon suitcase. Naturally formulated and scented, Maison Made will not only soothe your skin but also relax your body and mind and transport you deeper into romantic vacation mode.
