Unfortunately, people don’t always know how to appreciate mother nature. Plastic waste, pollution, and toxins are building up and damaging our environment. We need to be careful because after all, there isn’t any clean air without any trees. Yet even with all the pollution you can still take actions to care for nature, travel sustainably, and avoid waste.

There are several ways you can minimize waste at home, and even anywhere you go. For instance, you can drastically reduce waste by becoming an eco-traveler.


Today, let’s discuss more ways you can reduce waste during your travels:


Use Eco-Friendly Toiletries

Reusable and Eco Friendly Toiletries

Women tend to own a lot of toiletries. These can range from balms, shower gel, face wash, moisturizer, razors, deodorant, tampons, toothbrush, shampoo, toothpaste, and other beauty products. The same can also be said for men.

However, you can cut down a lot of waste by simply packing reusable travel bottles for your shampoos or bringing a bamboo toothbrush instead of the plastic one, and substituting out some other items you typically use. This list is just our suggestions, but share your tips in the comments! 





More Public Transportation And Walking

Walk More, People

Walking is the best way to enjoy the environment around you. It’s also perfect for your health. Yet, when you are traveling and want to visit as many places as possible, walking might not seem like the best option as it requires a lot of time. 

Instead of traveling by taxi or renting a car, you can travel using public transport and save a lot of money as well. In turn, you’ll be sparing the environment of those carbon-emissions.



Choose Restaurants Wisely 

Research Your Restaurants for Eco Friendly Choices

The environment suffers a lot due to animal agriculture. Meaning, eating in restaurants that serve meat indirectly supports pollution. It’s projected that animal agriculture is responsible for around 15% of global pollution. 

You don’t need to go completely vegan, however. Just be mindful about eating meat every day. There are thousands of delicious recipes based on fruits, vegetables, and spices. You can explore this part of the restaurant’s cuisine too, especially when you travel.





In summary:

Bon Voyage Travel Art

Everyone is responsible for producing waste in this world, some more than others, but everyone can also be better and do better. So, the next time you travel the world, be sure to avoid any waste and be as efficient as you can.

Speaking of efficiency, be sure to plan your travels on a push pin map so that you can save your time traveling, since you’ll know where to go and what path to take.
