Travel Tips for a Go Green Holiday (or any day!)

Travel is stressful. Packing, long longs at security, flight delays, and unsavory seat neighbors. Anything that can make the trip slightly more manageable is always welcomed, but sometimes that can unintentionally add a lot of waste. If you’re anything like me - the extra waste brings extra eco-guilt.

So to ease some of that guilt, I have put together a couple eco-friendly Go Green tips for your travels this holiday season.

Sharing Rides to the Airport

Millions of people are expected to travel through LAX this holiday season; To many, this means the dreaded “LAX ride”. We’ve all had to ask a friend for it, and we’ve all braved the 405 S so our BF could make their 9:00 PM flight to the Midwest. My suggestion is find as many friends as you can to carpool. An easy way you can do this is through social media. If you know a good number of people going out of town, you could create a Facebook group or an event to arrange carpool schedules. If Facebook isn’t an option, I’ve had a lot of luck with LAX shuttle services. Most of these services are reliable and easy to arrange. You simply go to their website and fill in your trip information. The shuttle will pick you up based on your departure time. In my experience there have been 3 to 4 other passengers in the shuttle with me, but all have been pleasant.

Travel Toiletry Bottles

There are a couple things you can do in regards to your toiletry situation. My weakness has always been tiny versions of normally regular sized products, so I have a few half empty travel lotions and shampoos floating around my house. This year, I’ve decided to fight my urges and reuse the bottles I already have. It was a tedious activity but I felt really worth it in end. I used three bottles that were nearly empty. The hardest part is cleaning out any left over product. It took a long time but with some elbow grease, dial soap, and a couple cotton swabs I was able to get all of it. The second step was to remove any labels. This helps with confusion and leaves a blank bottle for labels. My first attempt was with a permanent maker, which was unfortunately not permanent. I then used different nail polish colors. Blue was for shampoo, green was for conditioner, and purple was for lotion. If you use the same product often this solution can actually be more convenient than purchasing travel toiletries that are not your usual go-tos.
Extra hint: A clean discarded pill bottle is perfect for toothpaste.

Quart Size Reusable Travel Bags

I recently took a trip to Flight 011 located at 8321 W 3rd St, Los Angeles, CA 90048. Immediately I was taken by their F1 X-Ray quart bag.
With bold colors, amusing textures, and functional design, these bags eliminate the use for those old plastic zip bags that we have all become so used to. Not only are the bags adorable but also they are TSA approved. No “Please step over here Ma’am (or Sir)” for you.

Don’t forget your reusable water bottle

You’ve made it past security and almost to your gate. Suddenly, you realize you’re parched.
Quickly taking in your options, the choices are:

A. a plastic bottle of Smart Water
B. a plastic bottle of Fiji water
C. a plastic bottle of Dasani water.

All of the above are unsavory options when it comes to being eco conscious. I am guilty of this having to make this choice, but it’s so easy not to. As long as you remember your favorite reusable water bottle, your choice will be simple. Where there is a restroom at LAX, there is most likely a water fountain. Although it takes a minute to fill up, it is well worth the extra time.

One of my very favorite bottles is the 17oz S’Well Rose Gold bottle.

Perfect for water and perfect for coffee, this bottle will keep your drinks cold for 24 hours, or hot for 12 hours, is non-toxic, and BPA free.
