Welcome to our blog post – 5 Best Camping Products For Summer 2021!

LIFE IS BETTER WHEN YOU’RE CAMPING!

Adventure is calling!

Are you looking to explore the Great Outdoors this summer and to sleep under the stars?

When reconnecting with nature it makes sense to keep the environment in mind.

Let us help make that happen ….

Mountain Hardwear

1. Mountain Hardwear’s: Lamina Eco AF Sleeping Bag

If you’re a keen outdoors person, you’ll most probably be familiar with the Mountain Hardwear brand.

Each of their products are created with the environment in mind.

Here’s how:

⛺ By 2022, 60% of Mountain Hardwear’s products will be made of recycled materials.
⛺ By 2024, 80% of Mountain Hardwear’s products will be made of recycled materials.
Mountain Hardwear has already eliminated the use of toxic fire-retardant chemicals in all of its tents.

With all of these eco-accolades in mind:

Our first product in our 5 Best Camping Products For Summer 2021 is Mountain Hardwear’s Lamina Eco AF Sleeping Bag.

“Our Lamina Eco AF Sleeping Bag brings premium recycled, undyed materials into our welded Lamina construction, making it our lightest-impact performance mummy sleeping bag to protect the environment.”

Here are the Lamina Eco AF Sleeping Bag specs:

💤  Made from 82% recycled materials.
💤  23 gallons of water were saved as it’s a dye-free bag.
💤  The trims are made from recycled ocean debris.
💤  28 recycled PET bottles were use in the insulation and the trims!
💤  Able to keep you comfortably warm down to 15F/-9c.

2. Abeego’s Bees Wax Wraps (and not just for the reason you’d think!):

Don’t lug single-use plastic with you on your camping adventure. If you have bee’s wax wraps at home and they’re at the end of the life (it happens!) bring them camping; they’ll protect and preserve your fresh food on the way to your site, then once done – use the wrap as a fire starter!

Abeego is made with a formula of beeswax, tree resin and jojoba oil which is then infused into a hemp and organic cotton cloth. When the day comes, the wraps are 100% compostable. Better yet, cut it into strips and repurpose as firestarters!”

They’re lightweight, water-resistant and burn chemical free. Slay wet campfire wood and fire up charcoal barbecues or fireplaces:

– Light the end like a wick or
– Pull strands free, crumple in an airy ball and light it up!

It’s always great to pack as lightly as possible on your camping adventure – this two-in-one product is a great place to start.

Sambazon

#3 In our 5 Best Camping Products For Summer 2021! – An easy breakfast solution from Sambazon!

If you’re like this camper: the thought of getting up and navigating the lighting of a fire is overwhelming at best.

Beat the morning-fire scaries with a DELICIOUS ready to eat brekkie.

We’d be remiss to not mention these amazing PEANUT BUTTER POWER™ AÇAÍ BOWL with this notion in mind. From eco-giants Sambazon, these bowls are a vegan, Non-GMO and Fair Trade. They’re great start to the day as they provide 12g of plant-based protein per serving. They’re chock-full of Açaí berry, peanut butter, banana and a protein blend complete with granola topping. Better still – the container is made from 100% Plant Fiber!

    4. A silicone headlamp from Eartheasy.

    Skip the need for batteries and the single-use plastic and opt for a chargeable, silicone headlamp.

    Silicone is durable, and more ocean-friendly than plastic. It lasts longer, and stands up better against heat and cold than plastics. … When burned, silicone reverts back into its harmless ingredients: amorphous silica, carbon dioxide, and water vapor (unlike plastic which releases toxins when burned). (EcoLunchBoxes). These headlamps from Eartheasy are not only incredibly useful (trust us – even if you’re going to a park campsite, having a lamp straight on your noggin’ will be SO helpful) they’re super lightweight and waterproof, too!

    5. Natural Mosquito Repellents

    Mosquitos can make or break a camping trip.

    Some people are mosquito-magnets and can’t escape the little-winged vampires. We’re suggesting a meddely of mosquito repellents as our fifth and final 5 Best Camping Products For Summer 2021! Bypass the to-deet or not-to-deet conversation with Random Acts of Green business member Simply Natural Canada handmakes an array of bug repelling products including soaps, sprays, balms and roll on’s.

    We especially like the SNC Natural Outdoor Spray with Neem Oil (which is a healthy alternative to bug repellents made with harmful chemicals).

    The key ingredients in the natural bug spray includes a blend of essential oils bugs don’t like in a base of witch hazel and organic apple cider vinegar.

    There’s also an afterbite … just incase!
