Beach season is upon us, and we’re all dreaming of spending more time outside. Lacing up your hiking boots, setting out on your bike, or getting your swimsuit on and heading to the pool are some of the first things that come to mind. But taking a moment of rest to stop and appreciate a clear sunny day or firefly-lit night can be equally rewarding. 

Whether you’re heading to the beach or getting comfy for some 4th of July fireworks, we’ve got some suggestions for the best beach blankets to throw in your bag. Like many nature lovers, at The Home Green, we want to enjoy the outdoors in a way that also helps to preserve them for future generations. All of the beach blankets on our list have taken extra steps to be more sustainable, and are also still attractive and versatile, too.

Designed with the beach in mind

WestPath, the maker of this beauty, hales from Southern California, so you know they understand what it takes to build the best beach blanket. They describe this blanket on their Etsy site: 

“We wanted to design a blanket that was not only made with Super Soft Organic Cotton, but was also perfect for outdoor adventures. We came up with a much more durable, tighter weave than our other blankets, so it won't trap sand or dirt when taking it to the park or beach.”


  • Approximately 52″ x 65″
  • 100% GOTS certified organic cotton
  • Sewn in a Fair Trade Certified Factory
  • Machine washable

The eco-friendly beach blanket with heart

This beach blanket will turn heads on the sand, but it’s got more to offer than just good looks. Not only are the blankets from Jpur Artist Collective handmade but they give back by partnering with the charity Akshaya Patra, dedicated to feeding Indian children in need. Their site specifies that each blanket purchased feeds a child for one month! 

“Our founder's childhood memories of India inspired our creations, but they also ignited a spark of purpose within us. We realized that we could use our passion to make a real difference in the world by fighting child hunger in India.”
