A Beginners Guide to Eco-Friendly Travel


Travel far and wide with our travel and Earth friendly-products. 

We’re all trying to make positive changes and reduce our carbon footprint each day but have you ever thought of what happens to these habits when you travel?

Recent research suggests that carbon emissions related to tourism have been on the rise in the past few years and that the travel industry is responsible for up to 8% of the world’s total carbon emissions.

But as our local boarders begin to open and we start to explore our beautiful country again, we can make sure that our Earth isn’t paying the price.

We have put together a list of both habits and items that you can swap so that you can travel green.


  1. Pack lightly

Not many people know that every kilogram counts when flying. So, the more the plane weighs, the more carbon emissions it produces. Help our planet out and only pack what you need.


  1. Don’t bag it

People often go through ridiculous amounts of single-use plastic bags during their travels, which often land up in our waterways, oceans and parks. Bring along a re-useable shopping bag with you instead.


  1. Treat your hotel like your home

You wouldn’t have a half an hour shower or keep the lights on all night at home, would you? Treat your hotel like your home to avoid unnecessary wastage.



You may have already purchased some of these products to use each day but remember to bring these with you on your next adventure.
