Sustainable traveling may seem super complicated but it is actually very simple. There are several things you can change to make your trip more sustainable, here are our favorite tips:
1. Bring your thermos of water
Thermoses are your best friends, they will save you from buying plastic bottles and also help you stay hydrated on all your adventures.
2. Buy solid shampoo
Solid shampoo is an excellent alternative that apart from not taking up space in your suitcase. It's super easy to use and you can take it with you on all your adventures. You can buy one at any of the stores we suggest here, we like the ones from Lush and Botánica Granel.
3. Cutlery set
If you are going to be moving from place to place and eating out or take out, take your own set of cutlery so you will not have to buy or use disposable ones.
4. Bring your keep cup
If you are a lover of tea and coffee, keepcups are perfect for carrying your hot drinks and forgetting about disposable cups forever.
5. Buy a toothbrush made from bamboo
Brushes made from bamboo create less plastic waste plus you can dispose of it without worry at the end of your trip.
If possible, walk where you can or use a bike to get around. If it's safe, use public transportation instead of renting a car. In this way you reduce emissions and it is also an excellent way to get to know the place.
7. Snacks in Tupperware
We love snacks, but the truth is that many of them come in plastic bags or single-use packaging. Try to buy your snacks at the supermarket or organic markets and put them in tupperware to avoid generating more garbage.
