Green to know - summer

Nénés reveals its green selection for sunny days. Simple tips, zero-carbon travel ideas, committed cultural recommendations and vegetarian recipes, not to mention the essentials of our wardrobe to adopt: we reveal all our secrets for a more eco-responsible summer!


Good eco news

In June, Australia announced the expansion of its marine protected area around Macquarie Island. The ambition of the Australian government is to triple the area of ​​the existing park so that it is now as big as... Spain! This area will be completely closed to fishing, mining and other extractive activities. Thanks to this project, almost half of the country's maritime areas should be preserved !


Eco tips

Who says summer then says sunscreen ! But not just any sunscreen, no, a sunscreen that is both good for you and the oceans ! Indeed, although it often seems trivial, the choice of sunscreen is in reality not at all. And for good reason: every year, 25,000 tonnes of sunscreen with chemical components that pollute coral reefs and underwater species are dumped into our oceans. We must therefore favor mineral filters as well as natural and biodegradable components as much as possible . This is why we love the brand Seventy One Percent , all of whose products are vegan, made in France and contained in recycled and recyclable packaging . We fell in love with their 100% natural Eco Sun Spray SPF50 !


Eco book

Yes, yes, traveling in Europe and even further without taking a plane is possible! Thanks to Zero Carbon Travel (Or Almost) , discover 80 turnkey itineraries without plane or car, in Europe and beyond . From a weekend in Bristol to a multi-week tour through Italy, Greece and Istanbul, this book offers valuable resources for thinking differently about your vacation and therefore developing a new way of traveling.


Eat green

The warm months are synonymous with fresh, colorful and vitamin-rich fruits and vegetables ! So, to honor the beautiful season, here is the list of summer products, to consume without moderation!


Eco-friendly recipe

Looking for inspiration to enjoy seasonal fruits and vegetables? That’s good, at Nénés, we love sharing our best ideas!

Peach is the ultimate summer fruit! And if it is delicious on its own, it also goes wonderfully in different fresh and savory recipes. So for a healthy, fresh and colorful vegetarian meal, try this succulent roasted peach, burrata and toasted walnut salad. Be careful, immediate addiction!

Indeed, La Pampa is the podcast that tells you about bicycle travelers and their adventures . Sound postcards, immersive travel stories, advice and tips for a successful cycling trip... a super complete program, to be found every two weeks!


The idea of ​​ecological travel

Did you know that it is possible to go anywhere in Europe by bike ? Indeed, the EuroVelo project, the European cycle route network, includes 17 European cycle routes spread across the continent . They represent 91,500 km, of which 45,000 km are already developed and cross 42 countries! Norway, Italy, Austria or Greece... which destination will you cycle to?


Good green deed

It is often the small gestures that make the big difference. Starting with supporting committed and engaging associations like Clean my Calanques ! This Marseille association , created in 2017, campaigns for the preservation of the environment and has aims to raise awareness among the entire population of environmental issues. How ? By cleaning the creeks of Marseille and by intervening in schools and businesses ! Today, more than 52,210 kilos of waste have already been collected, and more than 5,000 young people have been educated in class!

For those who live in Marseille, you can participate in the depollution sessions by registering voluntarily just here . And for others, you can support the association, even from a distance ! Go here to find out more.


The Nénés ecolo piece: the Nénés x Clean My Calanques set

In order to commit ourselves even more to the protection of the environment, we have declined our iconic Edith set in 100% Dutch linen in a new sunny version with a print of pink shells and sky blue stripes for a collaboration with Clean my Calanques .

The Nénés X Clean My Calanques set consists of an oversized shirt and high-waisted shorts tightened at the waist . In addition to being flattering on all body types , it is also super comfortable and durable because it is made of linen, THE breathable and eco-responsible material par excellence. Indeed, it is local, requires little water, it does not require the use of pesticides and it is zero waste!

The Nenes X Clean My Calanques set can be worn in summer pajamas or outside to go out. Another advantage: it can be worn together but can also be mixed with other pieces in your wardrobe!

100% of profits are donated to the association.

Restocking scheduled for July 29.
