5 Tips & Tricks for Being Green on the Go

by David Alan Basche

1. Buy small containers or bottles to keep your natural, chemical-free grooming products in

Toss one in your gym bag and one in your travel bag, that way you’re always ready with the stuff that’s best for your hair, skin and the planet.

Travel Mug2. Two words: travel mug!

C’mon guys, they make cool stainless steel ones, or if you have kids you can put their drawings and photos on them. There’s just no excuse for not having a travel mug at work and on the go.

3. Okay, two more words: water bottle!

I’ve walked along the once-pristine beaches of Mexico and the Caribbean and they’re now a mess. Plastic bottles litter these coastlines, and it’s just shameful. Those could be your bottles, people! Get a BPA- and phthalate-free reusable water container today. Do it now. Yes, right now. reusable shopping bag

4. Ladies and fellas – you should always have a reusable shopping bag with you

And for Pete’s sake stop taking plastic bags every time you buy one small thing you could easily carry. Know where those plastic bags end up? See tip number 3!

5. Natural hand sanitizer is a must when traveling

Not a germaphobe? You will be once you realize how many sneezing people have touched that airplane tray table or hotel doorknob before you. CleanWell is the brand I use. It’s alcohol free and kills germs naturally using thyme oil and citric acid. Stock up on their one-ounce spray containers and stay healthy.
