Our co-founders, Tim and Nancy, are enjoying quality family time on the sunny islands of Hawaii, catching up on sand castle building and getting some much needed vitamin D. Always doing their part to be as eco-friendly as possible, Tim shared some of his tips on traveling green.

  • We always bring Better Life soap and lotion with us wherever we go. This keeps us from using the throw-away bottles at the hotel and avoiding the proliferation of what are usually highly fragranced, petro-chemical based products. Better Life soap can be used for shower gel, shampoo and hands. We also use small reusable plastic containers for smaller sizes of any products that we want to bring with us, such as conditioner.
  • We use compression bags to pack things like socks and underwear. This not only saves space (and the cost associated with checking additional bags), it also saves space on the plane.
  • We try to eat healthy when traveling. A lot of times this means going to the grocery store vs. going out to restaurants for each meal. Unfortunately this can increase the potential to waste food, especially on shorter trips. In most cases the housekeeping department is happy to take a half loaf of bread or whatever might be left over. This allows us to buy healthy options for the family without feeling guilty about wasting unused items.   
  • When going somewhere for an extended stay, we plan out our meals and grocery list prior to leaving. When we arrive at our destination, a stop at the supermarket is one of the first things that we do. By planning ahead of time, we eliminate waste of unused food, the fuel needed to go back and forth to the store, and we save a ton of time and stress by knowing we have most everything we need for the entire stay.
