Posted by on July 20, 2020 in Eco-Friendly, Environment with 0 Comments

This COVID-19 pandemic has shown us the importance of good health in our lives. However, over the years, we have generated excess plastic waste, polluted the natural resources, and encouraged improper usage of energy. The millions of waste plastic bags have polluted the oceans and landfills. The wastage of natural resources like water has led to scarcity, thereby having a strong adverse impact on mother nature.

One of the easiest ways to bring nature’s harmony back is to use eco-friendly products. Below, we list a few essential products that you can replace with greener options to reduce your carbon footprint.

Eco-friendly products to carry anywhere you go:

  1. Reusable Water Bottle: One-time use of plastic water bottles contributes greatly towards the generation of plastic waste. About 91% of plastic bottles get thrown away. To do your bit, you can shift to a water bottle that can be refilled for use. Keeping a sturdy travel water bottle handy is a great option while you’re traveling outdoors or going hiking.
  2. Solar Power Bank: To reduce the emissions caused when you recharge your phone, switch to a solar power bank instead of electricity. As the name suggests, solar power banks are naturally charged by the sun’s energy and can help you reduce your carbon footprint considerably. Modern best solar power banks have several features that make them smart, portable, and convenient.
  3. Reusable Straws: Americans use 500 million plastic straws in a day. This pollutes the landfill drastically. An eco-friendly alternative is keeping a reusable straw in your bag every time you step out for a coffee or smoothie.
  4. Eco-friendly toothbrush: Replacing your plastic toothbrush with a brush made of natural bamboo is a great way to remove the use of plastic from your daily routine. For more durable options, go for a brush that has a detachable head. This way, you can replace the bristles once they wear out without having to replace the entire brush.
  5. Notebooks made of recycled paper: While notebooks are a necessity and meetings aren’t complete without paper, irresponsible use of paper can lead to excessive cutting of trees. You can help by going paperless whenever you can. Another way is to use a notebook that’s made of recycled paper.
  6. Natural wood Hair Brushes: Replace plastic combs with brushes made of natural wood. Besides being eco-friendly, natural wood brush bristles massage the scalp and promote blood circulation.
  7. Reusable Cotton Bags: Keeping a reusable cotton bag in your travel bag is ideal for you if you’re planning a shopping holiday. Reusable bags come in handy for storing food or can be used as shopping bags. By having a cloth shopping bag, you can reduce your use of plastic.
  8. Reusable Travel Bottles: One of the best ways to travel eco-friendly is to use silicon bottles for keeping toiletries that can be refilled. This way, every time you travel you can refill these bottles with your shampoo and body wash without causing extra plastic waste.
  9. Keep a reusable cup: Keeping a good reusable and well-sealed coffee cup in your travel bag can help reduce the use of single-use coffee cups. Next time you’re heading out, pack your coffee mug to save the planet.
  10. Use Toiletries made of natural Ingredients: Switching to shampoos and soaps made of natural ingredients is another way to reduce your carbon footprint. Chemically heavy products harm the environment. From production to usage, these products harm the environment in many ways. Shifting to products made with natural ingredients is a healthier and safer option.
  11. Carrying wooden make-up brushes: Switch to wooden make-up brushes and upgrade your make up kit to an eco-friendly one. Make-up brushes with wooden handles are durable and cruelty-free.
  12. Reusable coffee filters: If you travel with your coffee maker everywhere you go, an easy way to reduce your carbon footprint is to switch from paper coffee filters to reusable K coffee filters. These filters are easy to use and washable.

Conclusion: In the current situation, it has become essential to take care of mother nature. We shouldn’t leave excessive carbon footprints while traveling. This especially holds true if you’re planning to travel to mountains, forests, or other natural locations.

One of the best ways to ensure that we travel green is to carry along eco-friendly items. From carrying a solar power bank for charging your phone with clean energy to carrying reusable coffee filters, many small, conscious steps towards eco-friendly traveling can help heal mother nature. It’s a small but powerful way to do your bit.
