Start packing your bags because summer is here! Whether you plan on going camping, hiking, or swimming at the beach here are some things you’ll need to bring with you can enjoy your vacation to the max while being eco-friendly!
Here are the Top 5 ways you can have fun while healing Mother Earth.
Going for a swim? Use a reef-safe sunscreen or wear a rashguard.
It’s important to protect yourself from the sun’s harsh UV rays and it’s just as important to protect our marine life from harsh chemicals. No sunscreen is 100% safe but there are some brands that don’t use oxybenzone and octinoxate in their sunscreen which makes them more environment-friendly.
Bring a water thermos to keep your cool for longer.
When travelling with a group, most people don’t finish the water from plastic bottles because:
1.) They don’t know which bottle is theirs or,
2.) The plastic has been exposed to the sun making the water unsafe to drink.
Decrease plastic waste by bringing your own personal water thermos wherever you go to keep your water refreshingly cool and safe to drink.
Pack your tote bags for your souvenir shopping.
Souvenir shopping is one of the highlights for these trips and we can’t help but buy at almost every shop. Instead of asking for a plastic bag for your trinkets, bring your own bag to store your haul. After all, carrying multiple different colored plastic bags will not only ruin your style, but it’s also hazardous for the environment.
Be a conscious consumer when buying souvenirs.
Supporting the local businesses is much appreciated but make sure that the items you’re buying did not harm any living creatures or cause damage to their eco-system. After all, this might just be a tourist spot to you, but these places are homes to others.
Shampoo bars are better for your and the environment.
Shampoo bars are usually made with essential oils that are good for your hair and come in eco-friendly packaging to save yourself from the hassle of opening & keeping those messy, non-biodegradable sachets.
