7 Sustainable Dad Hats For Blocking Out Summer Sun
Billed, Brimmed, & Baseball Caps For Summer Style 🧢
Dad jokes may be out, but dad hats are for sure in this summer. As we gear up for weekend camping, glamping, and backpacking, we’re throwing on these effortless caps to keep us cool and sunburn-free. Plus, all these dad hats are crafted with eco-friendly materials, and many of the brands support environmental initiatives, too.
When you head outdoors this season, climate-neutral brand Tentree will have you covered—literally. This certified B Corp makes dad hats with sustainable materials like recycled polyester, organic cotton, tencel, hemp, and cork trims. We love the simple, clean designs, the many colors and sizes available, and the affordable price points. Dad hats for everyone!
