Below you will find a few simple alternatives that are good for the planet that will also save you space, time and plastic on your travels. Read on for these nine epic packing hacks:
A sarong is the glue that holds a packing list together. It acts as so many things yet takes up minimal space. For starters it can be used as a; towel, scarf, shawl, pillow slip, eye mask and so much more.
Keep liquids together
For any international trips where I need to take liquids through customs I ensure they’re kept together in a zip lock bag. This makes for a seamless check-in process. If sealed they’re less likely to leak, especially if they’ve cracked in transit or can’t take the cabin pressure.
Keep a separate pouch for your electrical cords even if it’s just for a phone charger, by giving your cords their own pouch they will resist the urge to get tangled in your handbag or damaged via being squeezed and squished into your bag.
If my period lands on a travel week, instead of trying to predict how many sanitary items I’ll need, I just pack my trusty moon cup. Problem solved! It takes up barely any space and great for the environment!
