Being sustainability-minded while traveling can be challenging. Most travel itself produces a huge carbon footprint, and not all destinations are eco-friendly. These four sustainable items are perfect for the eco conscious traveler.
| BOTTLE |
Made of Cordura fabric, these Matador’s reusable travel bottles are five times lighter and nearly four times more compact than their silicone counterparts because the container size adapts to content volume. TSA-approved and waterproof, the bottles can be filled with liquid soap, gels, shampoo, toothpaste, and more. It’s also leakproof: no more spilling soapy liquid in your suitcase. Plus, it is long-lasting, so you can use it again and again.

Whether you are listening to music, enjoying in-flight entertainment, or catching up on your favorite tv show, these headphones and the included recycled fabric carry case fit easily inside your bag or carry-on.
