More than 18 billion pounds of plastic waste end up in the ocean every year. For frequent travelers, relying on single-use plastic products such as tiny shampoo and conditioner bottles, small toothpaste tubes, and lotion containers contribute to the world’s plastic problem. Local sustainability consultant, Tara Dodson, has created a collection of travel essentials for your low-impact, plastic-free journey. Eliminating single-use products while traveling has just become easier with the Eco-Collections Travel Kit.
The Eco-Collections Travel Kit includes a Jute Insulated Grocery Tote, Tribe Apothecary Ocean Safe Sunscreen, Nelson Naturals Toothpaste, choice of Root Soap Bar Set or Plaine Shampoo and Conditioner Set, two bamboo toothbrushes, Ridley Glass Straw and Cleaning Brush, bamboo utensil set, and a reusable grocery bag. The kit is $60 and available online at Living Full Circle Blog or visit livingfullcircleblog.com under Mindful Market Place.
A Florida native, Tara Dodson is the founder of Full Circle Resource Management, LLC, a company that provides sustainability consulting to businesses and organizations. She holds an MBA in Sustainability from Southern New Hampshire University and has a background embedded in conservation, sustainability, and traveling. In her free time, Dodson writes for Living Full Circle Blog, which includes how to manage natural resources, techniques for reducing environmental impact, and how to live a more sustainable lifestyle.
“Sustainability is a lifestyle choice. If it’s made easier on people, they will make the right choice,” Tara explained. “Therefore, since it is tricky to practice sustainability while traveling, I created this kit to help others become responsible travelers the easy way. Each product is TSA-approved, plastic-free, and made with natural ingredients.”
