Must-have items for an eco-friendly beach trip
This summer is forecasted to be hellishly humid in New Zealand so going to the beach is an all-time favourite solution to avoid that annoying feeling. However, with an excessive number of people rushing to the beach, the outcome can be really bad. Lots of plastic trash, especially plastic bottles and single-use items can be disposed of every day. That is why we have decided to create a recommendation list of must have items that cover all your needs to get rid of unnecessary waste and protect the environment for your trips to beaches.
Reef-safe Sunscreen: I don’t think I have to say too much about the reasons why everyone should bring it with them every time going out. I want you to make sure that you all know to be aware that some sunscreen contains harsh chemicals that adversely affect the coral reef and living marine creatures. Be mindful of that and it is best to choose products that are reef-safe or organic.
Water bottles: Stay under the sun while being on the beach will quickly dry you out so having a water-bottle with you is a must to keep yourself fresh and hydrated. Plus, it saves you from wasting money on a water bottle that you are likely to throw away once it is finished. Save that money and that waste for something better.
Reusable Beach bag: Preferably a big bag to contain all you need to bring with you for a trip to the beach with friends or family. Opt for a big light but strong one because there are quite a few things you might have to carry with you. Might consider having it water-proof as well if you are afraid that it might get wet afterward. Otherwise, a reusable tote bag would nail the job.
Reusable food container: Bringing some finger foods or some snacks with you to share with your friends while enjoying the view and the quality time with them. It is best to choose the leak-proof and stainless steel for its easy to clean and mess-proof quality. Plus, they are light-weighted so much easier to carry around.
Reusable Cutlery: If you plan to have something take-away to have on the beach. This product might save you from using the single-use low quality plastic cutlery. Ideally to pick the bamboo made because they are light-weight and easy to clean. So you won’t have to worry too much about the cleaning bit after the fun.
Here are some recommendations I think that would give you a fun quality beach trip without feeling guilty about disposing waste to the beach. After all, no one wants to see a full-of-rubbish so do your bit today and keep the rubbish away. If you don’t have these products at home, don’t worry too much because they are all available in our store. All you have to do is to place your order and we will have them sorted for your next beach trip.
