Super Easy Tips for Eco-friendly and Sustainable Travel

Dear readers,

here I am sitting in the Chicago Midway Airport, just casually waiting for my flight to Toronto. And since it has been awhile after I wrote my last lifestyle post, I thought I would kill time and write another one. Because I’ve been traveling these past few days, I’ve been thinking about the idea of eco-travel. Yes, there are ways to travel while preserving the environment, and no, it’s not difficult. I know some people are skeptical about it, but it truly is not that difficult. And just like every change in life, we can start by doing baby steps. So, I’ve been compiling a few ways that contribute to eco-travel, and some are specifically for women (since I, myself, am a woman). Here they are:

Pela Case: The Eco-friendly & Stylish Case for Your iPhone

Pela Case

Phone cases! This is something that we think about when we walk out of the store with newly bought phones in our hands. Well, at least that was the first thing that I thought about when opening my iPhone 6, and yes, a phone case does matter a lot to me. I want my phone case to represent me while it protects my phone from my clumsy self that drops it every 5 minutes, and it had to be the perfect size because I still want to be able to put it in my pocket. So, finding the right case was tricky for me, but that was until I found Pela Case on Instagram.

Detox mask is something that I love to use. As a female traveler, it’s important to take care of my skin on the road and after my journey. When I get too much exposure of the dirt and the sun or when I return from my trip, I always try to pamper my skin by putting on a detox mask. And recently, I just got my hands on a brand that I have been eyeing for many months: Samudra Skin & Sea. I finally tried their detox mask and fell in love. So, I supposed, it’s time to dedicate a post to them.

Lunamar

My story with Lunamar for the Planet began in 2014 when I first encountered their Instagram account. At first I was interested because of their unique name and beautiful bikinis. But after researching for awhile, I learned that Lunamar is more than just a business. They are actually an organization offering handmade bikinis from Colombia and beautiful bracelets made from sustainable materials from all over the globe. They donate a percentage of each sales to organizations located in different countries throughout the world. Like, how awesome is that?

An Asian Girl and Her Lily Cup Compact

My Lily Cup Compact

Hi! I’m Bethanny from Indonesia and I use a menstrual cup called the Lily Cup Compact during my period. As a girl born and raised in Asia, menstrual cups aren’t really a thing. Pads are usually what we go for because inserting a cup inside our vaginas, or inserting anything for that matter before marriage, is considered taboo. I’m actually the first to try out a menstrual cup in my circle of friends, who always ask me how it feels but cringe when listening about the process. That being said, I honestly never really imagined that I would be sitting down and writing about my thoughts regarding my experience with the Lily Cup Compact. And keep in mind that this is not a sponsored post, everything I write is entirely me!
