Fall Travel Essentials

Our Favourite Eco-Friendly Packables To Keep Us Adventuring Into Autumn

By Charlotte Singmin

Summer may be winding down but our sense of wanderlust is still going strong.  Fall travel lends itself nicely to an invigorating joie-de-vivre, particularly when you’ve packed the essentials to enjoy the seasonal delights.  From cozy clothing for potentially cooler temperatures, to travel speakers and an inspiring read, we’ve got everything you need to make your next getaway the best adventure yet.

 

Fabriq RIFF Smart Speaker $69.99 CAD

While silence can be golden, sometimes we enjoy a soundtrack to our various getaways, and with this cute-as-a-button Fabriq RIFF smart speaker we can easily take our tunes on-the-road.  We love the boho vibe of the Arrows print (although the Jack Plaid was a close second!), not to mention the accessible price point, the versatility of wifi and Bluetooth functionality, complete with built in Amazon Alexa capabilities.

Rok Cork Lisbon Medium Travel Bag $345 CAD

This mid-sized travel bag is our ideal on-the-go companion; lightweight with large interior pockets (no more fumbling for our passports!), and adjustable removable straps, we love the chic unisex styling and that the bag is conscientiously made from cork and sustainable synthetic leather.

Allbirds Tree Loungers $135 CAD

Slip your feet into these sustainable Allbird Tree Loungers, and we’re convinced you won’t want to take them off!  Perfect for warm weather travel, these slip on shoes made with a breathable eucalyptus tree fiber are light, airy, and even machine washable, so you can go ahead and wander wherever the road takes you.

David’s Tea Cactus Tea Press $35 CAD

Adorable cactus motif aside, this travel tea press from David’s Tea is an absolute must-have for waste-free, refillable refreshment!  We love how simple it is to steep and press our favourite loose leaf teas, and that the double walled stainless steel mug keeps them perfectly cold (just add ice!), or piping hot.

Unwrapped Life Shampoo & Conditioner Travel Set with Tins $40 CAD

If you’ve experienced the misfortune of your shampoo and conditioner leaking all over the inside of your bag, then you’re truly going to appreciate this eco-friendly alternative from Unwrapped Life.  Available in 5 popular formulations (we’re partial to the charcoal detoxifier!), these solid shampoo and conditioning bars save space, the planet (no plastic packaging!), and your luggage.

 

Fujifilm Instax Square SQ6 Instant Camera $154.99 CAD

Although we love an instantly instagramable moment as much as the next wander-luster, there’s something to be said for the nostalgic fun of waiting a few moments for your pic to develop.  Not to worry selfie lovers, this Fujifilm portable camera comes equipped with a selfie mirror, selfie mode, colour filters, and a handful of other useful features to create instant travel memories which last a lifetime.

Bambu Utensil Set $20 CAD

Whether your layover has you sampling airport food, or you’ve brought a stack of pre-prepped snacks to feast on, you’ll want to make sure you’re packing this eco friendly Bamboo Utensil set from Bambu to keep your waste to a minimum.  Made of certified organic bamboo, this cute cutlery set comes complete with a natural fabric pouch to keep everything clean and tidy.

Monocle Travel Guide Series Aprox $17.35 CAD

So you’ve booked your ticket last minute and haven’t had a chance to finalize your itinerary?  Not to worry, we’ve got you covered, or rather Monacle does with their inclusive City Guides, spanning the globe and outlining invaluable details like “need to know” tidbits, recommended Hotels, Food and Drink, Retail, and Vocabulary translations.

 

Tentree Tulita Bomber $94 CAD

Fall travel can keep us guessing when it comes to sunny or not so sunny skies, so this season we’ll be sure to bring this quilted Tulita Bomber from TenTree for additional coziness in cooler climes.  Made of recycled polyester and organic cotton, with cork details, the conscientious clothing brand plants ten trees for every item purchased.

Vitamin A Balloon Rib Jumpsuit  Aprox $236 CAD

If your fall travel destination leads you to fun in the sun, then you’ll want to pack a sustainably produced, California-made jumpsuit from Vitamin A.  Designed with adjustable spaghetti straps and a low scoop back, and made from the brand’s signature soft and stretchy Eco Rib fabric (made from recycled nylon!) it’s perfect as a swimsuit cover-up, or worn on it’s own.

Indie Lee Discovery Travel Kit $38 CAD

On-the-go beauty is a great opportunity to try out new products, and the Indie Lee Discovery Travel Kit is the perfect intro to the eco-conscious brand’s Brightening Cleanser, COQ-10 Toner, and Squalane Facial Oil.  We love that the line is cruelty free and plant-based, and combines science, nature, and a strong commitment to clean skincare standards.
