Get green news right to your inbox!

All’s well in your zero-waste lifestyle when you don’t really have to leave the comfort of your own home. Home is where your low-impact bidet is and where you can make the most conscious decisions about how you live your life and how you affect your own carbon footprint. But the second you step foot out of your own home, living zero-waste is a whole new ballgame. What’s the key to staying true to your zero-waste values while traveling? Here are some important tips for traveling while living zero-waste!

Use silicone to-go tubes for liquids

If you’re going to be traveling with liquid products like shampoo, conditioner, or body wash, silicone to-go tubes are a great, sustainable option. Don’t buy travel-size shampoos and conditioners; instead, pour a small amount of what you already have in your shower into a to-go tube. GoToobs+ by Human Gear are silicone travel bottles with no-drip nozzles that come in a three-pack for a price of $6.99. (Sometimes you can find them for cheaper in Marshalls or TJ Maxx!) GoToobs+ are TSA-approved and because they’re made of silicone and minimal plastic, these bottles align with the zero-waste creed.
