Travel Tip: Pack a Green Car Kit For Road Trips
Road trip season is here and for many, the car will become a mini home away from home for hours or even days. In addition to plenty of snacks and music, eco-conscious road trippers will want to pack items to keep themselves safe, healthy, and hydrated, while minimizing their impact on the environment. Here are some of our suggested items for a green car kit. In fact, they’re good things to keep in the trunk or glove compartment on a regular basis!
• Solar charger – Charge it up on your dash or the seat next to you and use it to power your GPS, phone, camera, and MP3 player. Pictured: Solio Universal Portable Solar Charger
• Emergency radio/light – Look for a radio that can be powered by hand cranking, rechargeable batteries, and/or the sun. One with a built-in LED light is also useful in case of emergency. Pictured: Eton Solarlink FR360 Radio
• Bags – Pack at least one reusable bag for shopping and biodegradable bags to pick up litter at picnic sites, parks, and beaches.
