Suitcases and duffel bags are necessary travel equipment. Unfortunately, most are rarely produced in a sustainable manner, break easily, and then sit in a landfill for years to come. Thankfully there are sustainable, durable options. 

An eco friendly travel brand for luggage is Paravel. Their stylish Aviator luggage is made of recycled materials and offers a fancy and classy look. Their production process ensures social responsibility such as fair wages, no child labour, and no harming of animals.

Preserve space in your luggage and keep your things organised by using packing cubes. Eagle Creek produces washable and durable packing cubes made from recycled materials. They are also water resistant, meaning liquids won’t seep through the packing cubes to damage your clothes.

Reusable bamboo water bottle

Reduce your plastic waste by bringing a reusable water bottle rather than buying bottles of water. Insulated water bottles are a great idea because they keep your water cold on those hot summer days, and keep your coffee and tea warm for long road trips and hikes.

Sol Terra is an eco-conscious shop based in the US, and they are very careful about the materials they use in their products, using recycled plastic (RPET), hemp, or 100% organic cotton, and natural ingredients. Their reusable bamboo water bottle is BPA-free, has an insulated food-grade stainless steel interior, and can contain 17 ounces of liquid (500 ml). It comes with a removable tea strainer too.

Keeping your skin hydrated when travelling is so important. Sol Terra’s natural lotion bar comes in 4 flavours, and each tube contains 2.7 ounces (79 ml) of solid lotion. They have an easy application via push-up tubes, contain natural ingredients such as locally sourced beeswax, do not contain any chemicals, are organic, and are biodegradable.

Natural bug-repellent balm

What’s worse than getting eaten alive by bugs and mosquitoes? A chemically-heavy, unpleasant, and harmful bug-repellent spray.

Choose a natural bug-repellent bug balm instead, one that smells good, is better for your skin and the environment, was never tested on animals, and still works great. Sol Terra’s natural bug-repellent balm has great reviews.
