Eco-Traveller tips: how to pack less but still holiday in style!

travel light

Whether you’re camping in Cornwall, backpacking through Asia, or jetsetting to the Caribbean, you don’t want to lug heavy bags around with you. Holidaying light doesn’t mean you can’t holiday in style though. It just takes a bit more planning…

Keep toiletries to a minimum

If you’re only going away for a few days, there’s no point taking full size bottles of shampoo, conditioner and body wash. Our Dragon Fruit minis won’t take up too much room in your suitcase and as they’re only 100ml each, they’re fine to carry in your hand luggage. Want to take your favourite Faith In Nature products with you? Decant them into travel sized containers. If you’re only taking hand luggage, it might be worth swapping some liquids for solids, like solid perfumes, toothpaste tablets and bars of soap.

Don’t buy for the sake of it

Products designed for travelling can be useful, but only if you really need them. Check what the hotel or AirBnB can provide before you go. You may well be able to borrow an iron if you need one, rather than buying a travel iron to take with you. A collapsible water bottle can be handy, but make sure it holds a decent amount of water or you may struggle to keep topping it up when you’re out and about.

Friends that share…

Travelling with friends or family? Have a chat about what essentials to share. Can you make do with one pair of straighteners and one bottle of shampoo between you? Do each of you really need a packet of plasters and bottle of insect repellent?

The clothes maketh the traveller

Clothes usually take up at least two thirds of a suitcase so you’re going to need to be ruthless when deciding what to take. First off, check the weather forecast so you have an idea what you need. There’s no point packing boots if you can get away with a week in sandals.

Lay everything out on the bed before you start packing. What outfits have you got? What can be mixed and matched to create new outfits? What can be jazzed up to take you from a day beside the pool to a night on the town? (Check out Laidback London for lust-worthy ethical sandals that look as good with an LBD as they do shorts.)

What can be rinsed and worn again? What will dry quickly and doesn’t need ironing? Decant some of our super concentrated laundry liquid into a small bottle or jar to take with you. It’s suitable for handwashing and gentle enough for delicate fabrics.

Use your tech

Thanks to smartphones, we no longer need to pack a camera, guide book, map or music player. It’s also worth looking into other handy apps. You could download the Kindle app to your phone, for example, rather than taking a paperback or e-book reader. Just don’t forget a travel adaptor for your charger!
