Stock your bag for a fit and fun summer with this round-up of favorites from Team Active!


Active’s VP of Human Resources Meredith DePersia knows skincare and how important sunscreen is, especially during the hot summer months. Here are her favorite picks for the whole family:

For Her: Coola Tropical Coconut SPF 30 Sunscreen Spray
For the Kids: Ocean Potion Sport 50 Sunscreen Lotion
For Everyone: Coola Radical Recovery Exo-Cert Organic After Sun Lotion

Why Meredith loves these products:

Coola Tropical Coconut SPF 30 Sunscreen Spray: It smells like summer and protects really well! It has UVA/UVB protection, is a cruelty free product, and is 70%+ certified organic, which is always a plus. They also have a face stick, a mineral version, a higher spf and a lotion option, plus other scents.

Ocean Potion Sport 50 Sunscreen Lotion: My oldest son is very fair-skinned and this is the only sunscreen that I have found that keeps him from burning. I have used this brand for so many years I have lost count!

Coola Radical Recovery Exo-Cert Organic After Sun Lotion: If the sun does get the best of us, though, I slather this on me and my kids. It smells amazing, soothes the skin and prevents peeling.

Tip: Sunscreen is an HSA/FSA eligible item, so you can stock up AND save!


Our Chief Digital Officer Mike Rucker knows hydration is key to summer fun! Make sure to pack a water bottle with you and consider the HidrateSpark (enjoy a VIP discount with code acwell22 when you shop), the smart water bottle to empower individuals to live a healthier life through hydration.

Why Mike loves the HidrateSpark:

Staying well hydrated in the hot summer months is an important component of well-being, but it’s easy for me to forget to hydrate; or worse (without the nudge to drink h20), I’ll load up on diet coke or green tea instead of water.



Marketing Manager Jessica Isle knows shades are vital when stepping out the door and loves Tifosi Sunglasses.

Why she loves Tifosi Sunglasses:

Lightweight and polarized, these have proven scratch-proof, sweat-proof, toddler-proof and bottom-of-my-bag-without-a case proof. At under $50 they make a great backup pair for summer! Find them at REI or an online retailer.


A few other products our team can’t live without in the summer months:

Waterproof Case
Water goes with summer but some things are vital to staying dry. Make sure to have a waterproof catch-all case for phone + card + cash like this one.

Sunsafe Chapstick
No one wants a sunburn, especially on the lips. Try this Sun Bun SPF 30 chapstick that comes in yummy flavors like strawberry.

Dog (or cat) Waterbottle for Travel
Keep Bingo hydrated with this travel water bottle + bowl + dog waste bag holder all in one. Plus, it’s dishwasher safe!
