As lockdown lifts and summer approaches, you might be spending even more time outside with friends and family: socialising, eating, playing, and making the most of newfound freedoms. A picnic in the sunshine is the perfect event, but with more than five million tonnes of single-use items and plastics used in the UK every year, contributing to greater landfill waste, and polluting the environment, how can you ensure you picnic without adding to the problem?

Enter, the UK’s first sunshine concept store, Twiin, who source carefully selected fashion, beauty, and lifestyle products from sunny destinations around the globe. They’ve made it easy for you to use less plastic and throw-away items, with their limited-edition range of picnic kits, containing lifestyle products that are eco-friendly, functional, fun and designed for outdoor living.

As well as making your picnic more sustainable, Twiin offers beauty products like the ‘We Are Feel Good Inc’ SPF50 sun screen, are made with the environment in mind. Designed by two friends, a professional surfer and a skin cancer doctor, the sun screen is not only skin nourishing and protecting but also completely reef safe for the ocean.
