Reducing one’s carbon footprint while traveling is no longer the arduous and unaffordable task it once was.  Thanks to new technology and socially responsible businesses, there now exists a plethora of eco-friendly and stylish travel gear.

What’s more, these products are functional, durable, and affordable; there’s no reason not to make your travel purchases as green as possible. Below are some of our favorite eco-friendly products, designed to help you do your part in saving the environment.


  1.     Bobble Water Bottles

Say goodbye to single-use plastic bottles and hello to Bobble water bottles. Bobble’s BPA-free, made-in-the-USA bottles are lightweight and stylish, but that's not all. Each bottle comes equipped with its own water filter, guaranteeing you clean and filtered water wherever you go. So go ahead and refill from the tap. The Bobble can handle it.

  1.     ChicoBag’s rePETe Travel Packs

ChicoBag has one mission: to eliminate single-use products, particularly plastic bags. Their sleek travel packs are made from 100% recycled plastic bottles and are ultra compact. In fact, the entire pack folds into its outer pocket for convenient storage. Did we mention it comes in 5 colors?

  1.     Dr. Bronner’s 18-in-1 Castile Soap

Yes, you read that correctly: 18-in-1. Dr. Bronner’s Soaps are organic, vegan, and fair-trade, making them the ultimate eco-friendly cleaning product. What’s more, you can use them to clean virtually anything – your face, the dishes or even the laundry – which means you can cut your toiletry bag in half.

  1.     Solio Bolt Solar Power Charger

Not only is this charger virtually weightless at 5.3 ounces, but it also holds a charge for up to one year. Just one day in sunlight fully charges the battery, but it can also be charged via Micro-USB on those cloudy days. It's the ultimate tool for charging USB-powered electronics on the go.


  1.     Ably Apparel

Last, but certainly not least, is the environmentally friendly Ably Apparel collection of shirts, long-sleeved T’s, and hoodies. All Ably Apparel is activated with Filium, an eco-friendly technology that makes our clothing both odor and stain-resistant. We don’t use any nanoparticles or chemicals that can break down and leach into your skin or the environment and our clothing doesn't need frequent washing either - making it essential for the frequent traveler. Pre-ordering Ably Apparel means less packing, less laundry, and less of a carbon footprint. Now that’s what we call a win.


Here at Ably, we’re firm believers in doing our part to reduce our carbon footprint, and our consumers are too. We support all products that positively affect our lifestyles and the environment. As technology continues to improve, our apparel will continue to evolve, because we see a future where #LiveAbly isn’t just a hashtag, but a lifestyle.
