Stay Eco and Travel
You might think that travelling the world and staying away from plastic is impossible. I must admit it can be quite challenging at times. Especially when you are visiting third worlds countries as many of them rely on plastic to keep their stock fresh and consumer friendly. I'm here to tell you that it is possible to travel sustainably if you put your mind to it. Or at least the best we can do is try, right?
I am currently packing my backpack to head island hopping around Fiji. I thought that maybe you guys would be interested to know what I pack to make sure I can stay as sustainable as possible whilst I'm out there.

As many of you may know if you follow me over at @rocketandhoney I am in the middle of starting up my own business called Ethically So. It is a Low Waste online store based in New Zealand that prides its self around Zero Waste, Natural and Plastic Free products produced locally in New Zealand and Australia.
I will be stocking Sol Cups and all of the above products will be added over time. My aim is to make living a sustainable life easy for everybody. As Sol Cups have proven over time, helping the planet doesn't need to be difficult. Especially when it can be stylish at the same time.
We are the future. It is up to us to make sure we travel as responsibly as we possibly can. You have the option to say no to plastic and say yes to our planet. Don't be scared of travelling. Take it with both hands and make a sustainable choice which every direction you turn. You've got this!
