What are the plastic alternatives when travelling?

The best way to address the problem of plastic waste is to avoid the use of
plastic products wherever possible. Many disposable products such as plastic bags, drinking straws, disposable tableware and disposable cutlery can easily be replaced with more
environmentally friendly alternatives such as glass straws, canvas bags,
reusable dishes and cutlery.
Instead of buying water in plastic bottles, you can take a reusable water bottle with you and fill it up at public water fountains. You can also make sure to avoid
products without plastic packaging and prepare your own food.
When it comes to cleanliness while travelling, you should also avoid disposable plastic on the road. We provide you with some reusable camping accessories like cutlery & crockery on your trip. And the topic of dishwashing & camper cleaning is important as well. To make sure you need particularly littoe to no plastic at all, there are cleaning products from everdrop.

Plus, with their tab and powder solutions, they produce less CO2 during
transport, and you can refill them an infinite number of times - super convenient!

3 Tips for camping without plastic waste

1. as little as possible, as much as necessary.

Especially when you are on the road for a long time and cover long distances, you should only pack what you really really need. The heavier your camper, the more fuel it will consume which of course is a greater burden on the environment.
This also applies to the water and waste water tank of your camper. It costs you unnecessary fuel and CO2 to carry the extra weight of your wastewater around for hundreds of kilometres. It is best to empty the tank regularly at official waste water points. The wastewater is collected and cleaned here before it is returned to the environment.
The dissolvable powders from everdrop are a perfect match for this project. For example, you can use the everdrop dishwashing detergent in small, lightweight bags and dissolve it into dishwashing detergent with tap water in the refillable bottle as needed while on the go.

2. biodegradable products

Especially when you are camping, it is particularly important that the products you use are biodegradable. This is especially true for shampoos, dishwashing liquids and shower gels. Showering outside is generally never good. If there is no other way and you have to shower outdoors, for example, then your shower gel or shampoo should be biodegradable in any case, so as not to pollute the environment unnecessarily.
With the best body care products from everdrop, you can also shower outdoors if the occasion arises. The surfactants in the solid products are based on plant raw materials and completely without microplastics.

3. avoid and dispose of waste

Recycling is a great way to reduce plastic waste. When we recycle plastic, we can reuse it, reducing the need for new plastic.
This also reduces the energy needed to produce new plastic. Also, be sure to collect your trash on the go and put it away at
official trash drop-off locations. You should also avoid disposing of trash such as organic waste in the forest. A banana peel takes up to 5 years to decompose completely.

In the near future, the everdrop products will also travel in the Off campers an will be used for cleaning at all Off locations. So that the campers are clean, but the environment also stays that way.
All in all, it is important that we are aware that every individual can make a contribution to reducing the environmental impact of plastic waste. With these simple tips you can reduce the use of plastic products when camping. This will not only be good for the environment, but also contributes to a good conscience.
