Every time I get set to pack for a trip, I stop and make sure I have everything I need before I even begin the task. Travel is a mindful pursuit of fun and when we control what we can, we make it manageable.
As an avid traveler, I can tell you I investigate every purchase I make with respect to clothing as it has to be able to sustain a journey, an adventure and be a practical piece of wardrobe inventory that will return to my closet after the trip.
Today, I can offer you 3 travel tips for packing mindfully so you can enjoy fashionable, comfortable and versatile clothing, and a few other tips that will keep you packing and traveling while keeping your mindset in sync with doing our planet good! Lavishly live travel out loud and let’s see what to pack.
3 Travel Tips For Packing Mindfully
Focus On What You Can Control
Pack A Reusable Water Bottle
Travel is about having fun, but always bare in mind, that there is no going back and changing decisions we have already made. So, when it comes to getting ready to hit the road, jet-set or cruise, bring along a water bottle or reusable container so that you are not littering or adding to the landfill with those pesky plastic bottles.
We were on a cruise recently and I can not tell you how many people brought along water containers and the more I watched the more I learned how respectful many our to our planet. Do the same. When you travel, your cup or bottle comes along, leaving less trash and a better impact on our world and that is part of packing mindfully.
HEMP & COTTON
Purchasing items for travel is generally just a given. For me, it is about clothing that is perfect for any journey and material that is created from Hemp, Cotton and other recycled materials that are wearable. It’s not about clothing from impoverished countries that underpay their employees and extort tons of work from them.
Rather, purchases made come from sustainable sources, and by workers that are treated fairly while producing the items. prANA has this clothing, ethic. and offers sustainable, recycled, fair-trade certified and hemp items. prAna prioritizes giving back to communities all over the world. Learn Why Hemp Matters. Hemp is a nice durable material and it packs and travels well, so you can journey to the moon and back!
Organic Cotton is a great material and it is super soft as well as sustainable. Learn about Why Organic Cotton Matters and the Sustainable Clothing Movement. Every purchase matters as you impact the environment and the planet with each conscious choose you make in reference to clothing.
Packing For The Adventure & Life
Packing for travel requires a bit of thought and then the right clothing. It’s about packing clothing that can go from a dirt trail, a beach path to the dining room without missing a beat. Packing is about clothing that holds up well in the wash, no matter if it’s in your bathroom hotel sink or in the washer of well-driven water at a rental home, and Hemp, Organic Cotton and other various recycled materials that prANA uses in product take it all on and wear well!
I love comfortable clothing is both packable and easily cleaned and prAna has me styled! The clothing is something I can control, it is my choice to purchase from prAna because it is an adventure clothing with the planet in mind.
I bet you are thinking that I compromise my personal style when I purchase sustainable clothing, but you are wrong. Check out my latest outfit being packed up for my upcoming trip to the Caribbean. The top is called the Petra Swing Topmade from recycled, organic materials, Hemp, and it is Flourine Free and PFOA Free. The color is cargo green. While my Lizbeth Skirt is in the color tree bark made from the same sustainable product.
The versatile but classy clothing design makes for outfits that can be worn to work or on an adventure. I can style this with heels or a pair of athletic shoes, no matter how I wear it, I look good, feel good and I have made a mindful decision about helping our planet. I wear my clothing dressed up and dressed down because it is fashionable, comfortable and so versatile.
TAKE A TURN
Now it’s your turn to spread positivity in our country. One way to do that is to make sure every purchase you make and every gift you give has a positive impact on our planet. prAna offers organic, hemp, sustainable, and fair trade items so that you can feel great about the things you wear and the items you give.
