Eco-Friendly Glamping Essentials

By Jackie Dreyer

Nothing goes better with a just-booked glamping getaway than a little shopping spree for eco-friendly glamping essentials to go along with it. From green gadgets to biodegradable beach toys, we’ve curated a list of our current must-haves to help get you ready for your upcoming luxury camping vacay.

For Her:

Your average camping trip usually includes nothing more than the basics in your backpack—and certainly not make-up. There’s no need, however, to rough it when luxury camping. Companies like Burt’s Bees and Lush are making sure your cosmetic bag is full of natural beauty products to bring along on your glamping getaway.

Clothing companies like BAM are ready to dress you both comfortably and stylishly in bamboo apparel. Bamboo and other organic fabrics don’t just come in the form of yoga gear, either; these companies are turning out chic every day, every occasion wear that will fit right in with your luxurious vacation surroundings.

What Glamping Hub Loves:

Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm (11 colors, $7.00/ea.), Lush Eyes Right Fresh Wheatgrass Mascara ($18.95), and BAM Women’s Bamboo Hoody Dress (Now £52, originally £65)

For Him and Her:

From gadgets to vacation staples, there’s no shortage of eco-products on the market that are begging to be packed in your suitcase.

Wash up with the certified fair trade Dr. Bronner’s castile soap—which can be used as shampoo, body wash, face wash, and more—and then apply Korres’ Sunscreen Face Cream Yoghurt, made with organic, edible yogurt, before heading out into the sun. Tote your favorite products along, too, in GoToob Travel Bottle’s silicone, FDA-approved, BPA-free travel containers.

Swap out that old suitcase for a weekender duffel by BARE, which are made from upcycled coffee sacks. Etsy seller, SimplicityofFelt, has just the pair of eco-friendly, felt slippers to slip inside of your new, go-to travel bag, perfect for lazy mornings around the tree house. Take home a souvenir from a winery tour in a reusable wine tote by FEED. By purchasing this wine bag, you’ll also be providing five school meals to hungry, underprivileged children across the world.

Have an impromptu dance party at your glamping rental with the help of an eco-amp for your iPhone by Eco-Made, and then power your devices back up with a solar-powered charger by Solio. For staying hydrated between activities, the chic and sleek BKR glass water bottle is a must-have. If, by chance, you also have a special occasion to celebrate while on vacation, be sure to pack some environmentally-friendly confetti, which comes in a fun push-pop applicator by Etsy seller, thimblepress.

For the Mini-Glampers:

When the weather takes a turn for the warmer, be sure to snag a set of these beach toys by Zoe B., the world’s first biodegradable beach toys. The kids will love making sand castles with this American-made product, while parents can rest easy that these non-toxic toys won’t cause their little ones or the environment any harm, should they get washed away in the tide.

For Fido:

Many glamping sites are not only eco-friendly, but also pet-friendly, which means man’s best friend is going to need some new accessories, too. Harry Barker specializes in sustainable pet supplies, using only green textiles and dyes, as well as natural ingredients for their dog treats and biodegradable shampoos. Their collapsible dog bowls made from 100% recycled materials are so easy to pack and carry that we have a feeling your furry friend will be coming on many more vacations from now on.
