Our Sustainable Travel Essentials

As travel is slowly starting to open back up, we wanted to share with you some of our favourite travel essentials for an ethical and sustainable trip. Whether you are jetting off abroad or having a stay-cation, these essentials will ensure you have the best trip possible! 

 

Jewellery / Make-up Pouch

Everyone needs a make-up, jewellery or toiletries bag when travelling. Our Indian Block Printed Pouches are available in 2 sizes, so whether you travel lightly or pack for 'just incase', there's plenty of room for all your essentials. The soft cotton and slight padding makes them perfect for jewellery as it will be nicely protected. We particularly love the Garden Tiger Moth print when travelling as the darker colour means it won't be obvious if it gets a bit grubby in your suitcase.

 

Reusable Water Bottle 

For us, a reusable water bottle is an essential wherever we go! Whether it's a day trip or a week-long holiday, carrying a reusable water bottle means less single use plastic waste. We particularly love a collapsible water bottle as it means it takes up less space in your bag when it isn't in use. Stojo make some really high-quality collapsible bottles with a huge 590ml capacity. Plus, they're available in a whole range of beautiful colours. The bottles can be used for hot or cold liquids, making them the perfect multi-use bottle. 

 

Foldable Fan  

Wherever you're travelling to, you are bound to find yourself in a hot and stuffy situation at some point. That's where an handheld fan comes in handy! Available in a range of bold and colourful designs, our Ghanaian Wax Cotton Fans will help to keep you cool. Taking a fan with you on your travels also reduces your need for air conditioning or electric fans, helping to reduce your energy consumption - perfect for the environmentally conscious traveller.  

 

 

Solid Shampoo 

A great way to reduce your waste when travelling (or at home!) is to use solid shampoo. Completely free from plastics, solid shampoos are so much better for the environment as they are waste-free. We recommend Beauty Kubes solid shampoo for travelling as it comes in little individual cubes so you can take exactly the amount you will need, meaning they take up less space in your luggage. Beauty Kubes are all 100% cruelty free, vegan and made from natural ingredients in the UK. They also have a range of other plastic free toiletries such as body wash and face masks. 

 

Eye Mask 

We've all been there; enjoying a restful nights sleep when suddenly the early morning sun comes streaming in, disturbing your slumber. That's why we always travel with an eye mask. Our 100% cotton eye masks are super soft against your skin and the beautiful prints are sure to give you sweet dreams. 

 

Happy Travels!
