Vacations don’t have to be wasteful; all that’s required is some planning. I brought this zero waste kit on my recent trip to Chicago to avoid creating trash while out and about. This canvas tote doubled as my purse with the addition of my wallet and sunglasses 😎
By always being prepared, I was able to enjoy the city with a clear conscience. I avoided disposable cups and plastic bottles with a travel coffee mug and stainless steel water bottle. I avoided food waste with a reusable plastic container that I put restaurant leftovers in. I avoided plastic utensils by carring my own spoon and fork. I avoided paper and plastic bags by putting purchases directly in my tote.
Take a couple minutes right now and create your own zero waste travel kit with items you already have around the house. Then put it by your front door so you can grab and go for your next summer outing ☀️
