Have a friend, co-worker, or family member that loves to travel sustainably? This (mostly) under $30 gift guide for the sustainable traveler has your tote bag toting, eco-obsessed traveler covered. Curated by a tote bag toting, and eco-obsessed traveler.
I also made a guide on reducing your footprint here.
19 billion pounds of plastic waste ends up in the ocean every year, if everyone used just one of these products, that number would be greatly reduced.
REUSABLE CUTLERY AND STRAW SET
Reusable Coffee/Tea Cups + Water Bottles
Looking for the perfect reusable travel mug? Stojo is it! This little mug is collapsible and leak proof. It comes in a million colors and is great for anyone who loves a hot beverage. I use this cup in my daily life and on my travels. During beverage service, I delight the flight attendant with my reusable cup. They really appreciate how you are making less work for them and helping the environment. Oh yea, it comes with a straw too!
I have had every brand and off brand of water bottle there is. I can say with perfect confidence that this one is the best! It keeps ice water ice “icy” for hours and hot beverages scalding long past they were brewed. This bottle will be a much loved upgrade in any eco-travelers life!
