Keep your cool and ride the heatwave with The Big Issue summer collection

The sun is shining and festival season is well underway – look cool and stay cool with our top summer picks from The Big Issue Shop

The hottest days of the year have fallen on us and it’s certainly heating up. Whether you’re heading to somewhere sunny or sticking to your own turf, we’ve got just the thing to help you look cool and keep cool!

These 100% cotton shorts from Colcha Clothing contribute towards creating sustainable communities across South and sub-Saharan Africa.

Opt for the bold Sunblushed style to perk up your summer wardrobe or go for the classic white on navy polka dot patterned Royal Flush for a more casual look. Either way, make sure you’ve got a refreshing drink in your hand!

If you’re heading to sunnier shores the Sorphea one piece swimsuit from RubyMoon takes you from the beach to the pool via the volleyball court. Made from fully vegan Oeko-Tex-certified nylon, it combines function with design.

Not only boasting a positive environmental impact, RubyMoon’s swim and active wear comes with a social echo too! Each sale of the Sorphea swimsuit helps RubyMoon keep making loans to empower women entrepreneurs around the world.

If you’ve got a summer at home, now is the perfect opportunity to brighten up your décor. This tablecloth from ARTHOUSE Meath will certainly bring a spark of colour and style to your dining table, and could even be taken to the park for a picnic.
