Travel can leave a big carbon footprint, so I always try to opt for green and earth-friendly products whenever possible. Using eco-friendly travel products can make a huge difference in the environmental impact of travelers and help to reduce waste.
I hope you find some new eco-friendly travel products to take with you on your next trip abroad or gift to that special traveler in your life.
Here are my favorite eco-friendly gift ideas for travelers!
FinalStraw’s mission is to create less waste in the world and cut down on single-use plastics! The FinalStraw product will truly last you a lifetime, and comes in different colors—I love the teal and blue colors! These straws are BPA free, dishwasher safe and can easily attach to your keys! They collapse into a handy carrying case, come with a cleaning squeegee, and can be taken anywhere along your travels. They also make awesome stocking stuffer gifts!SHOP NOW

I love United By Blue because, for every product sold, they will clean up one pound of waste from our world’s oceans and waterways.

These high-rise, compressive legging with flattering seam details are made using recycled water bottles—79% RPET and 21% spandex—and offer a four-way stretchy and breathable fit. I always try to opt for sustainable apparel over fast fashion, and these are the perfect travel leggings.SHOP NOW
Like I mentioned, Girlfriend Collective makes the stylish and sustainable activewear out of recycled plastic bottles— the dream! These sports bras are made from the same stretchy material as the high0rise leggings. Grab a matching set before your next trip!SHOP NOW
