Warmer mornings call for sultry chic loungewear and we're loving this kimono style dressing gown by Very Kerry at Made by fairly paid Indian artisans in a family run factory, this organic bamboo number hangs beautifully. Perfect for wafting round Ibiza - or your kitchen.

US brand Recover has hit the bottle. Eight in fact. Each eco-friendly T-shirt is made with eight recycled plastic bottles in a process that uses less water and energy than traditional manufacturing. There's a range of T-shirts, hoodies and bags for guys and girls. We love their commitment to all things parks.

Scottish organic seaweed skincare brand Ishga has won awards for its male and female ranges that are packed full of anti-oxidants, Hebridean water and pure Hebridean salt. Seaweed helps tighten and tone the skin and stimulate blood and lymph circulation - we love this fab marine face cream.
