Ah summer, how I’ve missed you. I can’t be the only one longing to rescue the suitcase from under the bed, and start flinging in long floaty dresses, suncream and sunglasses before heading for a week of sun, sea and slow living?
However it can be easy to abandon sustainable principles when we go on holiday if you're not prepared, but it’s never been easier to replace the usual suitcase favourites and travel essentials with greener, more ethical options - from the wafty kimono to reef-friendly suncream.
Read on for some of my favourite eco-friendly travel essentials for a more sustainable suitcase. Not only will you be helping the planet, you’ll have the most stylish packing going.
The humble washbag. If you’re anything like me, then you might hang onto one of these for years.
New eco travel brand,OneNine5, have re-designed this holiday essential to be something that works for a more circular economy. Their eco-friendly washbags are made from 100% recycled plastic. It can be recycled after use and includes a detachable clear bag so you don’t need to pick up any single use, see through bags for security.
