Recently, I wrote a post about making your vacation a greener one. When I was writing that post, I thought about the fact that there must be some really awesome Eco-friendly travel products out there to make your trip even greener. I am all about trying to make my carbon footprint smaller if at all possible and feasible. This includes when I do one of my favorite activities; traveling. If you are also of this mindset, here are some amazing Eco friendly travel products to consider packing on your next trip!
15 Eco Friendly Travel Products to Pack
Goddess Garden Organics SPF 30 Sunscreen– non-nano, biodegradable and vegan. Also Paraben free and non-GMO. What would vacation be without the sun and sunscreen?
GreenSmart Laptop Cases and Sleeves– These backpacks and laptop cases are made of 100% Recycled plastic. I love when they make something new out of plastics like this! These are perfect for carrying your laptop on the plane and this bag looks pretty stylish, too!
bedol Water Powered Clock– I cannot believe I lived without this alarm clock for so long! This clock is the ultimate alarm to take with you if you are camping as it requires NO battery or sun power to run. It really does run on water alone.
TOM’S Shoes– This isn’t strickly for travel, but I do find my TOM’S to be the ultimate travel shoe because they are super comfy, great for ong car or plane rides, good in the boat, awesome for walking around to check out stuff in town. They take up very little room in a suitcase, too, so I usually have more than one pair in there. These are green because they are often made of Eco-Friendly materials and TOM’S gives a pair of shoes to a child in need for every shoe purchase (not a green thing, but a let’s make a better world thing.)
Varies from $10-$70
Bucky Eco-Friendly Travel Pillow– I discovered on my last flight that there is a reason people bring along travel pillows. I bought one in an airport on the way home from my trip and let me tell you, it definitely wasn’t Eco-friendly and it was much more expensive than this one. The Bucky Eco-Friendly Travel Pillow comes in over 20 different Designs.
Khataland YoFoMat Travel Yoga Mat- I kind of have a hobby of doing yoga in places I visit. I like the idea of switching things up and doing it in new surroundings. It keeps things fresh. This Khataland YoFoMat is made of phtahalate-free material.
HoJAx Spinner Luggage Eco-Friendly Suitcase– This suitcase is made of Eco-friendly materials and is super light-weight. It is also recycleable!
Humangear GoToobs– These tubes are not only a green choice because they allow you to fill them with your own favorite Eco-friendly and organic products and reduce waste, but they are also TSA approved and made of silicone which is BPA free.
$19.99 for a 3 pack
House of Marley Earbuds– I love just about anything that is related to Reggae great Bob Marley. These House of Marley headphones are no exception. They are FSC Certified wood, and recycled aluminum. They are also tangle free! I love that they come in a hemp case as well.
Dizaul Solar charger– This solar charger works with iPhones, Androids and even GoPros. It is water proof, shock proof and dust proof. This is perfect for those that like to get outdoors and spend a long time out there with no electricity.
5 Minute Breaks Insulated Travel Bamboo Coffee Mug– This mug is BPA free and perfect for the coffee lover on the go that doesn’t want a large travel mug.
reuseit Bamboo Travel Utensil set– My husband and I love to go on picnics and we often find ourselves being forced to get the plastic wear that you find at delis. I always cringe when I have to do that. We have even been know to share a single set so we don’t have to take more than one! This set would come in handy for us to keep in the car.
Cozy Greens Car Organizer– if you have kids (or even if you don’t!) you probably know how easy cars become a mess. I actually just cleaned mine out today and I am always surprised how quickly it gets to be unbearable. Instead of letting it get there, I think I will get one of these car organizers. They are made of eco-friendly materials such as REACH materials that are odor free and safef or children and adults alike. It also includes enforced stitching in areas that get the most wear.
Nomander Collapsible Water Bottle– When I am hiking, I want to have things that can easily be put in my bag and not take up much room. Water bottles are usually the bioggest pain in the butt when it comes to this because they are bulky. The Nomander water bottle is made of BPA free material that is odorless and tasteless.
Hemptique Toiletries Bag– There are very few materials as durable as hemp and I am in love with this Hemptique Toiletries Bag because it is biodegradable and super roomy and the perfect thing to take your makeup, personal care products or even medications in with you when you travel.
Gaia guy Bamboo Toothbrush Holder– This sustainable and stylish toothbrush holder is naturally antibacterial because it is made of 100% bamboo. I love how it looks!
