Zero waste backpacking can be tricky. To reduce packaging on our last trip, we bought nuts and dried fruit in bulk, but it’s hard if you are doing a long trek and can’t prep things at home. I can’t wait to learn more and follow your journey!

I vote for the cup! I am a huge fan and wish I had made the switch years earlier. I wrote a blog about it covering my lessons learned, if you want more info on why it’s amazing (and what to be careful of).

"The simple fact is, there is just too much plastic — and too many different types of plastics — being produced; and there exist few, if any, viable end markets for the material. Which makes reuse impossible."

When you throw things "away", it doesn't magically disappear. It either ends up in a landfill or shipped to other countries for them to deal with. It's time to stop externalizing our waste and start holding plastic producers accountable.

“Sperm whale washed up in Sulawesi had flip-flops, bottles, bags and 115 drinking cups in its stomach” We produce TOO MUCH plastic - that’s why it ends up in a sperm whale’s stomach, or inside a fish destined for your plate 😥🐋🐟
