Portable bamboo cutlery for green packed lunches
For the traveler used to picnics and packed lunches during their hiking, a nice, green, and functional idea could be the portable cutlery kit, in bamboo. No disposable tools, but durable and environmentally friendly items.
A sustainable sunscreen to protect the sea
Finally, sun creams that are attentive to marine life are starting to appear in all the shops. In fact, we know how important it is to protect your skin from the sun, but also the devastating impact that some ingredients have on the sea and its ecosystem. If a friend is going on a summer vacation, give them eco-friendly sunscreen.
Solid cosmetics and shampoos make beautiful gifts for a responsible traveler
Easy to carry, even on a plane, with incredible fragrances, respectful of skin and hair, and made with natural ingredients: solid cosmetics are beautiful gifts for a responsible traveler and above all an easy way to say goodbye to plastic bottles and polluting products.
A washable face mask to be protected and ecological
In some countries there is an attempt to return to a sort of normality, using face masks less and less. But it is still important to continue to protect yourself and others, and therefore always have a mask at hand. Surgical ones, however, also represent waste that is difficult to dispose of. So it’s better to opt for a fabric mask, perhaps even personalized.

An evergreen among travel accessories, the backpack could not be missing among the gifts for a responsible traveler. To find the green alternative, just pay attention to the materials. There are those in recycled fabric, those in natural cork, or even those made by recycling advertising banners, broken umbrellas, bicycle tires, and waterproof textile supports.
