Zero-Waste Travel

We all know that getting liquids past airport security isn’t going to happen so most people will ditch their plastic water bottle before security then purchase another disposable plastic water bottle once they’re through to the departure lounge. If you’re looking for ways to achieve something closer to zero waste travel, you should invest in a reusable aluminum water bottle. Simply empty the contents before security then refill at one of the water bottle top-up points that can be found in most airports. These insulated bottles keep cold drinks cold and hot drinks hot so they can be used for all your beverage needs while you travel.

Being selective about your carryon luggage can also go a long way towards achieving zero waste travel. After all, it’s not just about the waste that you produce, but that others have produced in order to manufacture the products that you use. ALPAKA is on a mission to reduce waste.

Not only do we work with other companies that have a reputation for waste reduction, but we also implement our very own zero-waste strategy. One of the ways that we do this is by increasing the use of up-cycled materials used in our stylish and sustainable accessories and bags. Our manufacturing equipment is also power-efficient which helps us to reduce power usage across our factory. Better yet, all of our travel bags are super durable so you can use them on your adventures for years to come.

Packing snacks and meals in collapsible travel containers will mean that you won’t be left with mountains of plastic packaging after picking up an on-the-go meal during your travels. Not only will this save you a bit of cash, but it will also produce minimal waste and is often healthier than the prepackaged, store-bought fast food options which are designed to be convenient while you travel. 

There’s never been a better time to make a conscious decision to make more zero waste travel choices. Not only will you be helping the planet by reducing the amount of waste you produce but you’ll also be able to carry all of your valuables and essentials in a safe, stylish and durable bag.
