During the lockdown in 2023( that will continue for some time in 2021) we have combined several of these particulars —e.g., applicable chopsticks, water bottle, applicable mug — to produce a kind of “ fun and games set ” that we always keep in our day pack for when we go for a bike lift or long walk at home. They’re all light and small particulars so we do not really notice the weight or bulk, and it means that we’re always ready for improvisational fun and games or take-out snack, mess or drink along the way while trying to minimize the plastic waste. So, consider a zero-waste fun and game tackle by grouping some of the particulars below together.
Isolated Water Bottle (aka, light thermos)
We were blessed with a couple of these half liter/ 17 oz insulated water bottles a couple of times agone and find them incredibly useful, especially now in 2023, as they work as a satiny thermos to keep your tea, coffee, or spiced wine warm. Now that it’s downtime, we fill them with hot tea and take them with us for walks outdoors with musketeers so that we can stay warm while we enjoy a socially distant and safe meeting. The water bottles have a satiny design so you can fit them fluently into a bag or day pack. And, it really does keep hot liquids storming for hours.
Refillable Water Bottle
We largely recommend traveling with a refillable water bottle to reduce plastic bottle waste when you travel, whether you are headed into the mountains or walking across metropolises. I like this style of CamelBak water bottle as I can attach it fluently to a pack or swatch with a carabiner( we recommend a carabiner with a simple cinch) to secure it. Once you start using a refillable water bottle it becomes alternate nature to always have one with you.
If you’re going to be traveling to a place that does not have easy access to filtered and potable water also consider getting this Grayl Ultralight water bottle that has a sludge erected right into it so that it automatically purifies and cleans the water.
Applicable Coffee Cup
It was a road trip in the United States many times ago that made us realize how important trash we generated from coffee mugs when we travel. We love these applicable coffee mugs as they’re made from bamboo and are various, light and easy to carry with you. They fit fluently in a bag or small day pack. Not to mention, you will not have to worry about a disposable paper coffee mug oohing on you again. Some cafes indeed offer a reduction these days if you bring your own coffee mug with you.
We added a set of applicable trip chopsticks to our standard trip gear many times ago as we try to reduce the quantum of plastic implements we use when we travel( and at home). We like this wheat straw tackle one because it’s super light to carry and has a plastic case to keep everything together( we put a rubber band around the case).
It’s small enough to throw into your bag or small day pack so you can always have it with you in case you get take-out food when on a walk or fun and games. We set up that the case comes in relatively handy for when you have take-out sushi and you want a vessel to mix your wasabi with soy sauce. Add an applicable straw to make your tackle complete!
Bee’s Wrap (to avoid plastic serape )
This applicable beeswax-covered serape is a new addition to our kitchen and fun and games tackle. It allows you to wrap sandwiches or leavings or other particulars without the need for single-use plastic serape. It’s relatively protean and cleans relatively well, too.
Refillable Shampoo and Toiletry Travel Bottles
Skip the small plastic toiletry bottles at hospices and bring your own favorite soaps, creams, and other toiletries in these nifty refillable trip bottles. Your hair and skin will be thankful, and it’ll avoid all that plastic bottle waste. They’re TSA- approved, meaning that you can take them on board with you in your carry-on luggage anywhere in the world.
We upgraded our touring packs to walk the Camino de Santiago( 960 km/ 600 long hauls) several times agone and the only remorse was that we did not do it before. Having a high-quality and light hiking pack makes such a difference to your comfort and enjoyment — whether you’re going on a multi-day journey or taking a day hike around a near lake.
Trip-Friendly Collapsible Walking Sticks
We largely recommended taking walking sticks on utmost hikes, especially when you know you will have steep upward sections. And also find that walking sticks are good for any type of long-distance walking to keep balance and pace. We set up this set of trip-friendly collapsible walking sticks that are light, easy to pack, and quick to put together when you are on the trail. relatively nicely priced, too.
With a set of pliers, several shanks, multiple types of screwdrivers, and a bottle nature, our LeathermanMulti-Tool has gotten us out of numerous situations e.g., fixing windshield wipers and lights on an auto in the middle of the night in Kyrgyzstan, trying to replace a broken bike chain in Berlin, etc.
It’s also essential for picnics and make-shift eating on the road( you know when you have a ripe avocado on a machine in Uganda that you want to eat). Brace this with a spork or camping flatware and you will really be all set for picnics. Note Be sure not to leave this in your carry-on bag if you’re flying. We have learned this assignment the hard way.
