Sustainability is all the rage these days, and rightfully so! While trying to find ways to make your travels more eco friendly can seem overwhelming, there are some amazing products on the market that can make life easier for you. So if you are on the lookout for some sustainable gifts for the travel lover in your life (or maybe for yourself!), just keep reading.
I received a Stojo reusable cup for my birthday, and I absolutely love it! Not only can it hold a full cup of coffee, but you can also collapse the cup and throw it in your bag when it’s done. It’s leakproof, comes in a variety of colours, and the large size even comes with a foldable silicone straw.
Solar powered charger
If you know someone who spends a lot of time outdoors (or by a sunny window!), a solar phone charger might be just the gift you’re looking for. This solar charger can power two devices, and also acts as an external battery on top of being dust and shock resistant!
Whether it’s filling out custom forms or writing in your travel journal, a pen is always handy to have. A refillable ball point pen like this one is an easy way to be more sustainable, and won’t leak everywhere on flights.
Backpacks are my favourite way to pack for short trips, as they are just so convenient. This one from Nordace is great both for being your everyday backpack, or for short 3-4 day trips.

Compostable Phone Case
Whether at home or on the go, make sure your phone is well protected! The phone cases made by Pela are compostable, and they also have a whole range of colours and designs. You can also feel extra good when buying a Pela case as they are a member of 1% for the Planet, meaning 1% of their annual sales is donated to environmental non-profits.
No one wants to be wearing uncomfortable clothing when travelling. Pact clothing are a sustainable clothing brand that make affordable and comfortable basics that the frequent traveller in your life is sure to appreciate. I already have and love their t shirts, pocket dress; and I have my eye on their jogger pants.
For anyone heading to a sunny location, Australian Gold Botanical Sunscreen makes a lovely and practical gift. This sunscreen is mineral, meaning it is completely reef safe, and glides on like a dream! No more searching for a sunscreen that ticks all the right boxes.
Packing jackets for winter travel can be a bit of a nightmare as they are usually heavy and bulky. This lightweight, packable jacket folds into a tiny square and comes with a lifetime warranty.
Flat shoes are the key to being both comfortable and stylish when travelling. These gorgeous flats from Rothys are made from recycled plastic, making them both comfortable and sustainable.
Looking for a way to get around carry on liquid restrictions and reduce plastic waste? Solid toiletries to the rescue! I use the shampoo bars from Lush all the time (not just when travelling), and they also have solid conditioners, solid body butters and more.
