We should all have the opportunity to explore this beautiful planet, but with that privilege comes responsibility.
Depending on where you go and how you travel, your impact on the world can be significant. For example, if air travel were considered its own country, it would be among the top 10 global emitters of toxic carbon pollution.
Air travel is also among the fastest-growing sources of pollution via planet-overheating greenhouse gas emissions, with a 29% increase of carbon pollution between 2013 and 2019, according to the International Council on Clean Transportation.
When you’re planning your next adventure, you don’t have to sacrifice functionality, beautiful design, and efficient organization to be eco-friendly. Resist the travel-size, single-use plastic products and save money over time with reusable, high-quality accessories.
From our go-to luggage companion to the essentials that keep us organized, hydrated, and stress-free, these are the items we don’t leave home without.
