10 Zero-Waste Toiletries You Need in Your Travel Bag

Tickets? Check. Itinerary? Check. Travel-size vegan toiletries? We got you!

Have we ever, as a collective, been so excited to pack our luggage and get out of town? We think not! But while you’re adding the socks, skivvies, and swimsuits, don’t forget to take a look at that toiletry bag. For Earth Month, we’re kicking it up a notch with eco-friendly items that are not only helpful for your vacay stay but kind to the planet as well. Cue up Alexa and start a list—here are the zero-waste toiletries you need in your travel bag.

APTO

Reusable Cotton Rounds

Be sure to add some reusable cotton rounds from APTO to your travel bag! They come in their own bamboo storage container and will save the planet from all of those disposal make-up cleansing wipes.

Tofu Tikkā Recipe

Tikkā is a northern Indian dish involving marinated protein or vegetables cooked in a tandoor, or clay oven. My version is made with marinated tofu baked on skewers in a conventional oven to mimic the traditional cooking vessel, which adds a char and smokiness to the dish. Using smoked paprika further pays tribute to the traditional cooking technique. This tikkā is best served hot with cooling mint chutneys and is delicious in lettuce wraps as well. For lettuce wraps, dice the tofu and vegetables into smaller pieces after cooking and fill the lettuce leaves just before serving.
