We’ve all been struggling with finding things to do this summer because of COVID-19.
One activity that has been deemed “low-risk” is camping with small groups of people.
Campgrounds have been steadily booked up and people are returning to local tourism. We are being reminded of how beautiful nature is – in our own backyard at home.
We’ve compiled this list of eco-friendly camping essentials for you to check out to take along with you on your next trip.
Delicious plant-based burgers might be hard to come by – but we promise they DO exist. Wholly Veggie has great tasting burgers that will satisfy your tastebuds and feed your belly with all the activity you’ll be doing!
Keeping food “fresh” when you’re on the road can be challenging. No one likes stale sandwhiches while camping! But a beeswax wrap from Abeego can do the trick – and you’ll have fresh tasting food for the whole trip.
Bring your own cutulery is certainly a wise idea. Many campsites are fraught with disposables because of their “convenience” but we can change that, can’t we?! Try a reusable bamboo set from Earth Warrior Lifestyle.
There does exist an all-natural sunscreen option that helps protect you from UV Rays. Made from all natural ingredients, like zinc oxide and shea butter, Sisi Georgian Bay ensures you can soak up some sun without worry.
Along with the summer heat comes sweaty armpits. But there’s no need for the plastic packaging. There are compostable natural deodarant alternatives from TWIG to ensure you smell good -without harming the planet.
Ah yes- those pesky skeeters biting your ankles is not a fun part of camping – and nor is the feeling of harsh smelling chemical-heavy bug spray on your skin. Why not opt for a eco-friendly alternative from Simply Natural Canada? Made from hazel + apple cider vinegar, this spray will definitely help you keep the bugs away.
Scrapes and falls are common when exploring the great outdoors. If you don’t have your water shoes, you can step on a shell or a rock, or you can easily scrape your knee on a branch out hiking. Make sure you pack a first-aid kit with compostable band-aids inside from Patch Strips to help heal those minor wounds!
