Martha Stewart Living_Beauty and Health - July/August 2016

 

When it comes to living a green and environmentally friendly life, no one really thinks about long distance trips. Many people are of the opinion where they can live a green life daily, but when it comes to traveling for any amount of time, some of those lifestyle choices just go out the window, for necessity. But it’s different now, and there is no need to throw in the towel. Your green lifestyle can come on vacation right along with you. You can easily travel, near or far, long-term or short-term, in a green friendly fashion.

 

Every family needs to take some specific things on their trips, and that is a great place to begin your green friendly purchasing. Probably the first thing that came to mind is a suitcase. Green luggage is rarely talked about, but there is definitely a big market of it to choose from for your family’s suitcase needs. There are tons of choices now, from cute printed suitcases for kids to fancy luggage for adults, made out of a variety of green friendly materials, from recycled plastic to organic hemp. By purchasing one of these suitcases made in a durable, green friendly, material, you’ll be making a great long-term choice for your family and for the environment.

 

You can also bridge your eco-friendly lifestyle into the products you bring to drink out of. You can find yourself with a large amount of savings this way, because airport beverages generally cost quite a bit, and you can also feel good about reducing your waste. Liquids can’t go through security checkpoints in airports, but you can fill your best insulated water bottle in a variety of places after you make it through.

 

If you take an insulated water bottle with you, you can be free of worry that you’re going to soak everything in your carry on. With a fruit water bottle diffuser, you can even have some calming flavored water while you go about your travels.

 

Lastly, make sure that your airport snacks are green friendly. You can bring food from home, both in the car and on a plane. Glass and stainless steel food containers can be easily purchased and brought with you, full of great food, on your travels. The only stipulation is no gel or liquids, like applesauce or dressing, but other than that the sky is the limit!

 

Of course, there is some give that needs to be made while traveling, but you don’t have to compromise everything. Buying luggage and travel equipment that fits your eco-friendly lifestyle is one of the best ways to give a little love to the environment as you travel.
