Eco Friendly Travel Tips For Vegans
Let’s face it, travel is not always eco friendly! In fact, it can easily be anything but that!! We need to say goodbye to single use razors, plastic toothbrushes and toothbrush holders, fast food with single use containers, and emissions from planes, cars, trains, and so on!!
Here are some great eco travel tips from a well seasoned vegan traveler! We are here to show you just how easy it is to be a conscious traveler.
Eco Packing Tips
Traditional vacation items tend not to be so eco-friendly. Filled with plastics, only intended to be used for short periods of time, and not really cost efficient either!!
Here are some of our TOP eco swaps for you to try on your next holiday.
- Ditch disposable razors, try metal! They last a lifetime. Just remember to take out the blade before going on a plane.
- Switch out plastic deodorants for eco-friendly disposable deodorants! Find some great ones at EcoRoots!
- Try using a bamboo toothbrush and toothbrush holder!
- Invest in some eco-friendly floss. Found in glass containers and 100% compostable!
- Use cloth bags, instead of plastic, to wrap small items, shoes, and dirty clothes.
As you may very well know, traveling by car is not the most eco-friendly option. Neither is traveling by plane honestly. You have to do what you have to do, but try to be aware of the transportation you book and its impact!
Using public transport like subways and buses is best whenever you can!
Once you are at your destination, walking and biking are the most eco-friendly choices! Take your time enjoying the city views, or have some fun on wheels!
