The world revolves around the economy instead of environmentalism. Thus we need discipline, sacrifice, and a much noticeable time of adjustment. We waste tons of plastic a year, and it ends up polluting our planet. Probably, a lot of the stuff that you're throwing into your suitcase isn't great for the environment - whether it be full of chemicals, packaged in plastic, or energy draining. Once you realize exactly how much waste you create every day, you'll be itching to make a change.

Shopping that makes you a climate warrior: This is retail therapy we can all feel good about. We recommend you travel products and accessories to bring along with you on trips with minimum environmental impact and will reduce your carbon footprint:

Shampoo bars are packed with premium ingredients that are great for your hair and will leave you feeling luxurious and refreshed and is equated to 3 bottles of shampoo. Other than its portability, these are produced in an eco-friendly and cruelty-free way. The world's first zero waste and most sustainable lifestyle beauty brand, Ethique is New Zealand's highest scoring BCorp as well as carbon fiber neutral and living ware employer. It has saved over 3.3 million plastic bottles from production and subsequently disposal.

Ethique bars are packed with fresh and natural ingredients like coconut oil, cocoa butter, kiwifruit seed oil and essential oils.

The Raw Elements Sunscreen not only plastic-free (conveniently packaged in a reusable tin), but it's also free from harsh chemicals that can harm the reefs. Zinc Oxide is the only active ingredient in the formulation. Your sun protection lasts up to 80 minutes and does not run or sting your eyes. It can be used as part of your daily skin care routine and is gentle enough for kids. This Face + Body Lotion 30+ provides UVA-UVB true broad-spectrum coverage.

It does take a moment to soak in so apply ahead of time and it has no stinging or burning. The sunscreen is water-resistant.

The Croon Essentials Kit contains three microfiber and one exfoliating pad plus the laundry bag. You can remove makeup with just water and circular motions or add a bit of cleanser to really cleanse the skin, then wash and reuse for up to 200 washes.

The three cleansing fibers fit in the palm of your hand, come in an array of pretty colors and help remove makeup, impurities and dead cells from the surface of your skin. Other makeup removers are always too scratchy and didn't take off my own long-wearing makeup. Literally, with one swipe, your makeup will be gone.

4. Mesh bags

These reusable mesh bags are perfect for transporting wet bathing suits home from the pool or the beach, great for laundry while traveling, and excellent for collecting small things.

They allow air to flow in and out, making them the perfect grocery shopping companion, because they'll keep produce fresher for way longer than plastic bags (not to mention how much better they are for the planet).
