Allbirds Women’s Tree Skippers, $100
Equal parts stylish and sustainable, it’s tough to top the appeal of these travel-friendly shoes. The uppers are fashioned from eucalyptus fiber for breathability, while the superfine merino wool-lined insole and heep cup offer unparalleled support. And as with the rest of the Allbirds lineup, you can conveniently toss them into your washing machine when they need to be cleaned.

Revealed just in time for Valentine’s Day, this new item from celebrated skincare brand Mary Allan—who’s expressly collaborated with sustainable farms and green chemistry labs from day one—is the perfect pick-me-up when you’re on the road. Formulated with luxurious Bulgarian Damask Rose, proprietary vitamin C complex for brightening, and moisture-locking hyaluronic acid, a few spritzes will refresh you all over.
Monos Metro Toiletry Case, $85
Monos is the world’s first travel accessories company to be Climate Neutral certified and a member of 1% for the Planet. The Asian-founded and Candian brand also happens to specialize in timeless and high quality pieces, like this genderless toiletry case that’s made with a sustinable vegan leather that’s smooth to the touch, and will keep all your personal care products secure, organized, and within easy reach.
Merrell Women’s Embark Moc Eco Dye, $71.49
From walking your dog to racing through the airport to catch a flight, these casual and sporty shoes from Merrell are ready to take you wherever you need to go. They’re light as a feather, super cushiony, and a breeze to slip on thanks to their handy heel pull tabs. On top of that, these styles sport lots of recycled touches (think knit uppers, foam insoles, and footbed covers).
Vibrant Body Company Shelfie Tank Top, $59
When it comes to traveling in style and comfort, it all goes back to the basics. And this tank top by Vibrant Body Company checks off all the boxes with a whisper-weight material with just the right amount of stretch, built-in bralette for light support, and neutral tones that flatter all skin tones and complment all outfits. Even better? It’s Certified Clean™ to be totally free of any problematic and harmful substances.
Terra Thread Hasta Laptop Sleeve With Handle, $47.95
Since most of us bring along our laptops on our travels, why consider using something stylish and kind to the environment? That’s when this sleeve by Terra Thread enters the picture. Manufactured with organic cotton and well-padded to prevent dings and scratches, it also comes with handles for easy carrying. On top of that, a portion of the sales benefit Feeding America, a non-profit providing much-needed hunger relief to people across the country.
Good Time Essentials Bundle, $47
No wonder solid skincare and bodycare has boomed in recent years. It reduces the millions of plastic bottles that languish in our landfills and oceans. Plus, these solid formulas are waterless — meaning, you’ll get lots more use and applications from a single bar than you would a plastic bottle. So reach for this set by the newly-launched brand Good Times, which covers all your bases from head to toe.
W&P Porter Bags Bundle, $34.40
One of the easiest ways to cut down your dependence on plastic is with reusable food storage bags. These versions from W&P are made with durable and temperature-resistant silicone so they’re safe in microwaves and dishwashers. But don’t limit them just to food: they’re also ideal for toting toiletries, jewelry, and first-aid supplies while you’re on the road.
LastObject LastSwab Beauty Trio Pro, $24
Did you know that 1.5 billion cotton swabs are produced daily, only to be discarded after a single use? That’s why Isabel Aagaard founded LastObject, a certified B Corporation whose goal is to minimize our dependency on single-use swabs. This handy kit contains three different swabs—each one replaces 1,000 single-use swabs—which can be used in seemingly endless ways, from cleaning your ears to smudging your eyeliner for a smoky effect.
Terra & Co Oral Care Travel Kit, $15
Whether you stash this thoughtful kit in your gym bag or carry-on suitcase, you’ll have everything you need for great (and green) oral hygiene. Swipe away food particles with the single-use floss, then gently buff your teeth clean with the plastic-free and compostible toothbrush and waterless toothpaste tablets formulated with Hydroxyapatite (nHAp). Then finish your routine by chewing on the refreshing (and waterless, like the toothaste) mouthwash tabs.
