Here at Ecofreak we love the summer, however as the British weather is never predictable, when we do get some good weather make the most of it!
Here are our top ten favourite eco products to help you enjoy your summer, whether your out and about camping, going to a festival or just larging it up with your mates in the garden.
1. Solar Powered Charger
Just because you are in the middle of a field doesn't mean you can't charge your mobile phone or iPod! Get a solar phone charger such as the Solio solar charger and you use the free and abundant power of the sun to charge your mobile electronic appliances.
2. Outdoor Solar Fairy Lights
If you are having an outdoor party this summer you must get some outdoor solar fairy lights . They create a fab atmosphere and are super eco friendly as they charge from the sun in the day and light at night. Of course we don't sell rubbish so can assure you our solar fairy lights work really well (even in the winter).

3. Solar Powered Radio
Why plug in a radio or rely on batteries when you can simply power your radio with solar power . The solar panel on the Cheetah wind-up radio will charge the internal batteries whilst the radio is left in a sunny spot whilst switched on or off. Perfect for eco camping or as an eco gift .
4. Solar Powered Torch
Wind up torches are great but can require some serious winding before use if they have been left unused for a long period. Our solar powered Barracuda wind up torch has an integral solar panel to keep the torch batteries charged up and the torch ready for use as soon as you need it.

6. Wind Up Torch
We have a good range of eco friendly wind up torches but our favourite is the PowerPlus Shark . Waterproof to 10m and very robustly constructed the Shark wind-up torch will withstand pretty much anything you or the weather can throw at it.
7. Wind Up Camping Lantern
Wind up power is perfect for camping. The Owl is a great compact Wind-up Camping Lantern ideal for evenings in your tent.
8. Wind Up MP3 Player
If you like music on the move what could be better than a wind up MP3 player ? A perfect eco gift for a free spirit!

9. Solar Garden Light
If you are using the garden more through the summer a solar gaden light can really add ambiance to a garden at night. Use the Solar Garden Spotlight to illuminate features such as trees or statues to provide atmosphere or simply to stop you falling down the steps when you have had a few drinks!

10. Solar Camping Light
Sometimes when eco camping you just long for some of the comforts of home. Turning on a light at the flick of a conveniently placed switch with the Solar Mate 0.5 solar light . Comes with a handy remote control switch so you can turn on and off from your bed or wherever really.
