Slow travel is all about taking your time when in a destination not spending a week here before jetting off across the globe to spend a week somewhere else

Bring a box
Having a box to put leftovers in or your lunch not only saves you money but can lower the amount of plastic packaging and food waste which is a growing problem
Cutlery and Straws
With paper straws on the rise, having your own has more than one benefit.
No soggy straw in your drink not everywhere may have straws to offer, having a metal draw is better than paper for the environment
Having your cutlery means well you never have to worry about not having a fork handy as well as saving on disposable plastic ones.
Having your reusable bag not only saves the use of plastic ones but also saves you money.
Also use this bag for the beach, shopping, laundry, extra bag for anything you may need
