The Importance of Sustainable Travel

Sustainable travel is important for many reasons, but one of the most important reasons is that it’s essential to keep our planet and everything living on it healthy and safe. Tourism is responsible for approximately 8% of the world’s carbon emissions.

It’s estimated that a single tourist vacation generates an average of 5,000 pounds of carbon dioxide every year. While this may not seem like a big deal by itself, add up all those individuals each year and it’s staggering enough to make an impact. So if you’re a frequent traveler, please be aware of your environmental impact.

Waste from tourists alone has become such an issue in some popular destinations that locals petition to reduce or completely eliminate tourism. If each individual does his or her part to keep these areas clean and reduce their own waste, we can keep traveling (sustainably) for years to come.

Have you started using packing cubes yet? No? What are you waiting for!? I love using packing cubes because I can organize my clothes by outfit, by article of clothing (undies, shirts, etc.), or by portion of the trip (if part of the trip is hiking and part is sight-seeing, for example). They keep your belongings organized and easily accessible. These packing cubes by Northern Olive are made from organic cotton, an eco-friendly and more sustainable alternative to nylon or polyester cubes.

Kindle

Sale
Kindle
  • The thinnest, lightest Kindle Paperwhite yet—with a flush-front design and 300 ppi glare-free display that reads like real paper even in bright sunlight.
  • Now waterproof, so you’re free to read and relax at the beach, by the pool, or in the bath. Your Kindle has been tested to withstand accidental immersion in water.
  • Enjoy twice the storage with 8 GB. Or choose 32 GB to hold more magazines, comics, and audiobooks.
  • Now with Audible. Pair with Bluetooth headphones or speakers to listen to your story.
  • A single battery charge lasts weeks, not hours.

Anyone who knows me knows I am (was) so proud of my epic book collection. I could go to a bookstore and literally spend hours sitting in the aisles and browsing, afterward spending hundreds of dollars. I love knowledge and love to read non-fiction. It makes me feel more confident in voicing my (strong) opinions, knowing what the fuck I’m talking about, haha.

However, in January 2014 I sold them all, except for a few favorites I left at my mom’s to keep for me when I took off for Asia. Now I stick with a Kindle, which isn’t as satisfying as turning a page, but far more travel- and eco-friendly. The Kindle Paperwhite is the best option for me. It’s thin, light, waterproof, and has different storage options. Plus, I don’t need to mention how much paper it saves.


Eco-Friendly Travel Yoga Mat

Eco-Friendly Travel Yoga Mat
  • EXCELLENT GRIP: Jade Yoga mats provide superior traction. We use a natural rubber that has a stronger grip and more cushion than any of the synthetic rubbers on the market. Our mats are simply created to provide a secure grip to help hold your pose.
  • FOLDABLE: The Voyager mat is great for yogis on the go, and for those who like closer contact with the ground. At only 1/16” thick and 1.5 lbs, it easily folds to the size of a yoga block to fit into your tote bag, carry on, or backpack!
  • SUSTAINABLE: Making environmentally sustainable products is our number 1 priority. We are committed to giving back to the Earth with every product sold. As Jade Yoga mats come from trees, we decided to give back by planting a tree for every mat sold.
  • SUPERIOR QUALITY: Jade Yoga mats are made with high-quality materials to ensure outstanding performance and long-lasting products. For regular mat maintenance and routine cleaning, just wipe your mat down with a damp cloth on a weekly basis!
  • UNITED STATES-BASED PRODUCTION: All of our mats are made in the United States! "American-made" to us means quality and assurance, giving us much more control over the materials used in our products and the production process from start to finish.

There are a ton of eco-friendly yoga mats out there that I absolutely love, but for travel, I prefer the Jade Voyager. Actually, Jade has two different travel yoga mats – the Voyager and the original Travel Mat. The Voyager is slightly thinner and weighs a little less, which I prioritize when traveling. For any other traveling yogis out there, this is one of the best sustainable travel products to have.

Both are made of natural rubber, which comes from trees. To offset this, for every mat sold, Jade Yoga plants a tree! That’s right, since 2006, they’ve planted over 1,000,000 trees!

These organic cotton reusable shopping bags are perfect for travel or home use. I’m from the Canada, where you generally only have a ‘paper or plastic’ option – of course the paper bags break easily, are not reusable, and I don’t even need to go into the harmful effects of the plastics.

Now, living in Europe, you are not given grocery bags automatically, you have to pay for them. This is great for dissuading people from using plastic bags, but also a pain in the ass if they don’t offer cloth bags as well. These organic reusable shopping bags are great not only for groceries, but shopping of any kind. They’re durable, washable, and fold up nicely in your luggage.
