Zero waste travel can be difficult. Scratch that – living an average day zero waste can be difficult.
There’s a delicate balance to be struck between being aware of the waste you’re creating but also actually enjoying the trip you’re taking. I like to mitigate most of my worries by planning ahead. Traveling zero waste with a plan is an important way to reduce the waste you create while in an unfamiliar place.
I love this quote by Celia of Litterless:
…there are things I can easily do to stay zero waste while traveling. There are things, too, that I can’t easily do. The less guilt I feel over supposed failures, the more energy and motivation I have to keep doing zero waste long-term. And that, friends, is my goal, not reaching perfection on any given trip.
