Although transcontinental travels may not be eco-friendly in concept (although Spain’s Costa Brava was fantastic last week, darlings) if you must get away this summer you can at least pack your travel essentials in an earth-friendly fashion. All of these products are airplane friendly in case you have minimized flying private and must adhere to commercial airline regulations (all in the name of the planet of course, right?!) And while comfort and style are always key, this week’s Top Five orGLAMic Picks will allow you to rest your eco-conscious mind as well.
Amongst their fantastic accessories collection, this animal-friendly company has the perfect travel tote for men and women alike. The Lindstrom, pictured above, is made of black vegan ‘leather’ and recycled faux suede lining. The adjustable straps make lugging all your carry-on needs comfortable, and the zippered interior pockets are great for passports and phones.
These luxury organic throws are great for keeping warm when you aren’t flying private and the temperature is too cold for your liking. Made with super soft 100% organic cotton fleece and edged with natural silk charmeuse piping, having one of these while flying is the orGLAMic way to go. Available in a variety of colors, this blanket can easily be used as a throw at home as well.
My dry skin gets extra parched while flying, so I like to slather my arms, hands, face and neck several times throughout a flight so that I look healthy and refreshed when I arrive at my destination. derma e’s Age-Defying Night Crème has a fantastic texture and light scent that is perfect to hydrate and invigorate at any altitude. This vegetarian formula is free of parabens, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfates, petrolatum, mineral oil and artificial colors – so good for your health as well as the earth.
Any chic woman who travels regularly knows that the ideal uniform consists of leggings, a t-shirt, an oversized wrap cardigan and ballet flats. Olsen Haus helps me adhere to this uniform while going green simultaneously. These Babylon ballet flats are not only vegan, but they are made from a microfiber of 100% recycled television screens! Available in 8 stylish colors, these flats also come in a cheetah print which are divine.
Using essential oils and certified organic ingredients, Pacific Shaving Company’s All Natural Shaving Oil packs a huge punch in a tiny container. Instead of schlepping shaving cream with you, this travel-friendly sized product works remarkably well, moisturizing without leaving an oily residue. This tiny 2oz bottle lasts for 40 orGLAMic shaves.
