Adaptable, waterproof, and endlessly versatile, plastic is the ideal summer material. Sweat and sand are no match for the utilitarian material at the beach, while poolside spills and splashes can be easily wiped away. From chic woven bags and sustainably crafted sandals to classic colorful mugs and an old-school lawn chair, here are the most fantastic plastic products we’re loving right now.
