Essentials for a Sustainable and Plastic-Free Staycation

tents camping by the water.

We have put together our top picks for a sustainable staycation this summer, including: plastic-free shampoo & conditioner bars, mini essentials, solid lotion moisturising bars, sun-cream, after-sun, reusable silicone bags, all the washing up bits you will need for those camping trips and so much more!

Now that lockdown has been lifted and the sunshine is out, we can't help but start thinking about summer and staycations and I am pretty sure we aren't the only ones.

1. Solid Shampoo Bars, £7.50

This 2in1 solid shampoo and conditioner, is an essential staycation item when looking for less weight in your backpack or to take up less space than it's bottled high-street alternative. Plus, it will keep your hair feeling soft and moisturised even when the sun comes out or after a swim in the sea. It gently washes your hair using coconut-based surfactants and organic unrefined oils. If you are after an extra condition, why not try this super soft natural conditioner bar?

2. Washing Up 

If you are looking to go camping this summer for your staycation, we have lots of washing up items that will help prevent waste and also take up less space in your luggage. We have dish washing soap blocks, biodegradable sponges, pot brushes and also, soap nuts for doing your laundry.

3. Picnic items

We have everything you need to pack for the perfect plastic free picnic or camping trip. Our collection helps you to cut down on waste and store your food safely and securely. Our containers are great for leftovers and storing items on your staycation! We have lunchboxes, leakproof containers, cutlery sets, snack boxes, stainless steel cups and so much more.

4. Compostable Sponge Cloths, £6

These compostable sponge cloths will be your best friend on your staycation! They are so handy for keeping things clean when you are away, whether that is those mucky little hands, your dishes, or a spillage that needs soaking up. These amazing sponges are made from cellulose (wood pulp) and can absorb 15x their own weight in liquid (up to 3/4 of a cup) and replace the use of up to 17 rolls of paper towel, reducing plastic packaging and overall waste in landfills.

We also love these multi purpose travel wipes that can be used for cleaning but are also great for removing your make-up or even your babies bottom (they are so soft)!

5. Plasters, £7

Who doesn't need a tube of plasters when going on holiday? Whether you use them for a wound, a blister or patching something up - they are an essential item in your wash/medicine bag. Plus, these strips are 100% compostable - so you can be sure that wherever you travel you are not filling the bins with plastic! These care strips are hypoallergenic and perfect for those with sensitive skin, they are made with soft, organic bamboo fabric and gauze with hypoallergenic Pressure Sensitive Adhesive (PSA). 

6. Bamboo Silk Sleep Set, £33.60

Looking for a great nights sleep whilst you are away this summer and looking to treat yourself to some time relaxing, this is the perfect little set to make your staycation feel that little but more luxurious. Just pop the mask on and you can just place the sachets under your pillow, or hang near to headboards or on a nightstand close to the bed. 

7. Bamboo Toothbrush & Travel Case Set, £10

This set is a great alternative to the plastic toothbushes and cases you can get in your local store. We love how much nicer this case looks too! Buying this set together will save you over 10% off rrp (rrp £11.50). Or if you already have a toothbrush, you can buy the travel case separately here.

8. Mini Natural Deodorant, £4

These mini alternatives are super handy when you don't want to take your deodorant in a glass jar and only need a small amount for your trip! These best-selling and award-winning deodorants are available in these 10g tins, so you can pick the right deodorant for you. Choose from Clean, Gentle and Active or buy all three in the mini bundle here.

9. Solid Body Moisturiser, £12

This moisturiser is ideal for after those days on the beach, camping, or a long day of walking outdoors or in the town. Just pop this in your wash bag and you don't even have to worry about it leaking because it is a solid moisturising stick. This is especially good after a shower or bath, just warm the body balm on your skin for 2-3 seconds to melt, then glide to apply. It’s a wonderful silky feeling and feel like a little self massage!  Also available in an aftersun, for those especially hot days.

10. Sunscreen, £21.99

This sunscreen is not only natural and vegan and good for your skin, it is also reef safe so you can feel happy in the knowledge that you are not harming anything by going for a dip in the sea! Sol De Ibiza is made to protect people of all ages from sun, wind and pollution in every environment. It is broad spectrum (UVA & UVB) protection for all the family, using Non-Nano Zinc Oxide as a filter. Plus, the fact that is contained in an aluminium tub means there is no chance of this leaking all over your clothes when travelling!

  • I want to give a testimony of how I met Doctor Odunga who made me a wealthy woman using spell casting. This man helped me when I had nothing and no one to help me. My name is Darren Thompson and I am from Ramsgate but I live in Kentucky. I have always heard of the lottery and people winning the lottery through spell-casting and with Doctor Odunga I believed it was real. He helped me win the powerball lottery of (Three Hundred and Eighty-Six Million Dollars) $386 Million Dollars with spell casting giving me all the numbers for the lottery game. I am very happy to be the one giving this testimony too about this man. He is very sincere with his work.

  • LOST RECOVERY MASTERS ARE VERY CONSISTENT AND RELIABLE HACKERS, THEY SAVED MY FAMILY.

    The Lost Recovery Masters Group of Hackers saved Me from my cheating husband. My husband had a family outside our Marriage and had been spending my money on them.. I became suspicious at a point due to his late calls privately and his frequent money asking habit which he was using to fund his family. I got fed up and had to seek a Hacker to spy on his phone and to my disbelief this group proved my suspicion was correct. The Hackers got me proof of his message and calls including the address of his other family where he was spending some quality time when I was at work. if you need such services reach them through,;

  • Thank you DOCTOR ODUNGA for making me fertile after 22 years of marriage. I am a barren woman, in fact now it is, I was a barren woman. I say this testimony in regards to Doctor Odunga who granted my wish after 22 years of marriage. No one in my people and friends or family believed I would ever get pregnant, not to talk of giving birth. Now I am a mother of twins? I am indeed the happiest woman to say this testimony for everyone to read. I am Eunice Stein. I am 54 years of age. This is my first writing on the net about anything this serious, especially as for 22 years I have not been pregnant once since I got married to my husband. Please, do you need help with your fertility problem? CONTACT DOCTOR ODUNGA. Do you need your problem solved such as getting your ex back? CONTACT DOCTOR ODUNGA. He is the solution to all your problems. His online email is odungaspelltemple@gmail.com he will solve all your problems OR Whats-App/Call +2348167159012
