From tempura in Tokyo to coffee in Cartagena, you can sample the world’s flavors without leaving a large environmental footprint. Take these five earth- and travel-friendly essentials on your next tasty trip.


JOE ON THE GO
Reusable Stojo coffee cups collapse into leakproof disks, providing coffee fixes without all the waste. Two sizes and multiple colors.

SAIL ON
Swap disposable bags for a market tote from Sea Bags, made with reclaimed sails from Portland, Maine’s waterfront. Since 1999, the company’s products have saved more than 600 tons of materials from the landfill. Three sizes and multiple designs.

SUSTAINABLE SIPPING
Strawesome’s Glass Straws for a Cause are durable, beautiful, and charitable. Proceeds from its Save Sea Turtles Straw, for example, support Sea Turtle Conservancy programs in the wider Caribbean Basin. Multiple designs.

DRINK UP
Reduce single-use plastics and stay hydrated with the DYLN Living Water Bottle, which transforms ho-hum tap H2O into alkaline water infused with antioxidants. Two bottle finishes and multiple sleeve colors.

CHOP TO IT
From pocket to plate, Integral Design’s compact chopsticks expand from four to eight inches and come with a carrying clip-turned-table rest. Six colors.
