Packing for a holiday can be a nightmare – both for us and the planet. We’ll often buy things last minute that we may or may not need, only to let it go to waste after one use. It’s time to unlearn wasteful habits with a new packing regime; a much cleaner, greener, and eco-friendly regime. From travel cups to vegan leather pouches, here’s our pick of travel accessories for the sustainable traveller.
