28 Aug Light-weight and eco-friendly toiletry travel bag
I love travelling. I travelled South America with my backpack, visited several European cities and walked the whole country of Spain twice! This is also how I met Leon, by the way.
Those who are travel enthusiasts like me know that the toiletry bag is one of the most important things to plan and pack. It can become pretty heavy and weight is quite an important factor when it comes to backpacking, especially combined with a long-distance hike. As I spent quite some time to perfect my travel toiletry bag by taking only what I really need, packing it as light as possible and at the same time making it as eco-friendly as possible, I decided to share my packing list with you:
My personal comment
Approx. Weight (g)
I bought one from Jack Wolfskin. It has a hook to hang the bag up which is super handy during a trip with changing accommodations. When you sleep in hostels/bunkbeds you can also hang it up at the bed and use it as bedside cabinet. Besides, Jack Wolfskin takes corporate responsibility and engages in eco-friendly activities.
I use toothpaste bits; they are super light and you can calculate the days and the tabs that you will need for your trip.
A toiletry bag is certainly a very personal thing. Everyone has different requirements and that’s why the content can vary, but you can use this list as an eco-friendly inspiration.
I can get by for approximately a month with this toiletry bag. I hope to have my backpack on very soon again and perhaps walk through Spain a third time. Where is your next trip going to?
