Promotional Products for Summer Travel
May is just around the corner. Memorial Day marks the unofficial first day of summer. Whether you are traveling by car or plane, you can still make eco-friendly choices while away from home, regardless of the duration of your trip.
When packing, it’s easy to cut down on waste by investing in reusable, refillable containers, perfect for toiletries. Our TSA-friendly carry-on kit has a zip-top, resealable, pouch and includes three refillable bottles, one refillable spray bottle and mini funnel. Great for refilling over and over, again, reducing waste, lightening your load and having all your necessary products at your final destination.
One of the easiest ways to be green while on vacation is to bring a reusable water bottle. While you can’t bring liquids through airport security, most airports have filtered water refill stations. Instead of buying high-priced, disposable bottles of water, bring an empty bottle and fill it once you are through security. In addition to airports, it’s commonplace to now find water refill stations in hotels, amusement parks, national parks and locations throughout many major cities, like New York City and Washington, D.C. In our nation’s capital, residents and visitors can download the TapIt Metro DC app to find locations offering free tap water. Over 750 businesses, city government locations, federal government locations and even the Smithsonian museums are on the list, making it easy to visit the city and never have to buy a single-use bottle. Travel & Leisure magazine recently put together a list of top water bottles for travel which includes Nalgene’s 32 oz bottle as a top pick for hiking and is found at EcoPromotionalProductsonline.com.
Reusable bags are another must-have for vacations. Foldaway bags are compact and light weight, making them perfect for traveling. Once you get to your destination, you can use these bags for trips to the pool or beach as well as for shopping. Reusable foldaway bags are especially important when traveling to big cities that have plastic bag bans or taxes. In Chicago, for example, shoppers needing a bag for purchases will pay a 7 cents-per-bag tax. Save money and reduce waste by bringing a reusable bag or two when traveling.
For long days at the beach/pool or sightseeing, mobile chargers can charge phones on-the-go. Not all chargers are created equal.
