If you’re in the shopping mood this year, we’ve put together a gift guide of some of our favorite travel gear from our eco-friendly friends for all aspects of the journey. These environmentally-conscious products are perfect for the mindful traveler on your list.
Rumpl Sherpa Puffy Blanket
Rumpl's mission is to introduce the world to better blankets, and they’re doing just that. They applied performance materials typically found in premium outdoor gear and activewear to the blanket category to bring it up to date. The result is one comfy cozy blanket.
Rumpl offsets its entire carbon footprint every year and donates 1% of all sales to environmental causes. In 2019, they completely redesigned their core line of blankets to use only 100% post-consumer recycled materials. They are now recycling over 5 million discarded plastic bottles through their supply chain every year. They come in a variety of collections and even offer options for your four-legged friends.
The Sherpa Puffy Blanket makes a great gift for travel lovers as it combines the same materials found in sleeping bags and insulated jackets to keep you warm and cozy indoors and out. It features “The Cape Clip,” which allows you to wear your blanket hands-free, so you can start a fire, drink your beer, etc. and rolls up like a sleeping bag for easy transport.
If you’re looking for a gift for someone who’s into comfort, Pact is a great option. Pact’s mission is to build Earth’s favorite clothing company. Their clothing is super soft, versatile, and built for a mobile lifestyle.
Everything made at Pact starts with Organic Cotton. Growing cotton organically saves vast amounts of water and uses no toxic chemicals. They also partner with Fair Trade Certified factories because they ensure care for both people and the planet.
Pela Case Accessories
Pela Case is the world’s first 100% compostable, eco-friendly phone case working towards plastic-free oceans. Pela takes responsibility for its products throughout their entire life cycle. They give you the option of sending in your old phone case when your new Pela case comes, and they recycle it/make a new case out of it for a 360 approach to phone case consumption.
The climate-neutral certified company uses minimal, plastic-free packing for shipping, and is committed to giving one percent of their annual sales to 1% for the Planet to help fund projects that protect and preserve the environment.
Nomadix towels are made from post consumer recycled plastic bottles. They are fast-drying and serve a variety of needs—from the shower to the beach. Plus, purchases support 1% For The Planet, The Surfrider Foundation, and The Conservation Alliance.
The Only Towel You Need would be a great travel companion and comes in a variety of patterns and prints.
Klean Kanteen Insulated Classic
The Klean Kanteen water bottle is made from highly durable, food-grade stainless steel. It has superior insulating properties thanks to its double-walled, vacuum-insulated design. The water bottle is free of BPAs, phthalates, lead, and other toxins.
Klean Kanteen is a certified B Corp and is 100% carbon neutral in its manufacturing and delivery of products worldwide.
A great gift option from Klean Kanteed would be the Insulated Classic. This option keeps drinks ice cold for up to 90 hours.
Greats shoes are stylish, durable, and are made responsibly by the best factories in the world. They have tons of options for both men and women that are great for casual wear, like the Royale Eco Canvas, their most responsibly-made shoe yet.
Greats never uses single-use plastics in packaging or retail stores, and they team up with artisans who use generations-old techniques to make your shoes the proper way. They also use leather that is natural and biodegradable.
If you’re looking for an eco-friendly stocking stuffer, Stasher Bags are a great option. They are endlessly reusable and are a radically functional platinum-silicone storage bag that's better for you and the planet.
They have sizes for every need, but the best bet here for a gift is a bundle, so they can get a taste of all sizes and shapes.
Stasher Bags is a member of 1% For the Planet where a portion of every Stasher sold goes straight to high-impact nonprofits like Surfrider and 5 Gyers, that are dedicated to preserving and rehabilitating our oceans.
So far, Stasher has sold millions of bags preventing over 1 billion single-use plastic bags from entering our oceans and landfills.
