4 essential items every health-minded traveler should pack

When it comes to luxury travel, nothing is more synonymous than the color green. Both the color of money and nature, it symbolizes growth, harmony, freshness and energy. Until recently, “green” or “eco-travel” meant roughing it in a rainforest with a camouflage backpack, plastic water bottle and a map of local hostels. The more recent “discovery” that eco-travel could be more than glamping (glamorous camping) has opened a new world of luxury travel and with a new view, comes new, luxury must-haves.

I scoured the booths at the 2016 Green Festival in Washington, D.C. to find four essential travel items every fancy traveler should carry on their next trip. After all, there’s no need to sacrifice luxury for wholesome, organic products.

It’s made from bamboo, a renewable plant, so it’s also good for the environment and the perfect size for a carry on. (www.hotelcomfort.com)
