How To : Create Your Zero Waste Travel Kit

THE KEY TO MINIMIZING YOUR WASTE WHEN TRAVELING IS PLANNING AHEAD AND NOT FALLING FOR THE CONVENIENT OPTION. HERE YOU CAN SEE OUR LIST OF 5 ESSENTIALS FOR YOUR ZERO-WASTE TRAVEL KIT, WHICH WILL HELP CUT DOWN ON LOTS OF SINGLE-USE PLASTIC WASTE AND KEEP THE ENVIRONMENT CLEAN!
ZERO WASTE TRAVEL KIT #1 – WATER BOTTLE

 

This is likely the simplest and most obvious way to reduce the amount of plastic waste you make when traveling. Yet people still don’t do it! Buy a reusable water bottle. When you travel, you are constantly on the go. You will definitely need a lot of water because hot, tropical countries are known for their hiking, strolling, and swimming. However, if you do not own a reusable bottle and instead regularly purchase single-use plastic bottles, you are adding a huge amount of waste to landfills. And if you forget it at home, reusing your plastic bottle is better than nothing!

 

ZERO WASTE TRAVEL KIT #2 – TOTE BAG

Having a tote bag is an absolute must when you travel, and this tote bag collection from Bag-all is amazing. Some of our totes are lined with pockets, which makes it so much easier to store and find things like phones and keys without digging to the bottom.

One reusable tote bag could save thousands of plastic bags from ending up in our oceans.

 

ZERO WASTE TRAVEL KIT #3 – CLOTH NAPKINS

 

Is there anyone else out there who hates having dirty fingers? Like when you eat chips and want to wipe your hands after each chip, but you know full well that you're going to grab another bunch and repeat the process? Yeah, me neither…

These little cotton towels are basically the size of a napkin and may be used over and over again. When they get dirty, you simply throw them in the washing machine!

Pro tips: You can recycle old clothes and make it into cloth napkins!

 

ZERO WASTE TRAVEL KIT #4 – REUSABLE CUTLERY & STRAW

We all are aware of how much waste plastic straws and cutlery produce. While eating at home is a great method to prevent this, occasionally when traveling, even when you dine at a restaurant, you still find up with single-use cutlery!

Carry them with you when you travel so you can avoid single-use plastic straws or plastic cutlery when ordering takeout.

 

ZERO WASTE TRAVEL KIT #5 – PLASTIC FREE LUNCH BOXES

You might not think of this one right away when you consider how to reduce waste when traveling. However, it is really nice! Having some re-usable food containers in your backpack can save so much plastic being wasted on things like takeaway containers and ziplock bags.
