Solar power bank
A solar power bank is a great gift for that friend who takes holiday photography very seriously or that friend who can never get off their phone. Check out this list for the best on the market.
Eco-friendly bamboo toothbrush
Toothbrushes, while essential, are made of disposable plastic. This is why using a bamboo toothbrush makes a big difference in the amount of the plastic waste you produce. Give your friend a whole eco-friendly toiletry kit for a complete gift.

This nifty device allows your friend to wash their clothes even when there is no washing machine present. Simply add your clothes, water and washing liquid to the bag and wash away! This is especially useful on camping trips or when travelling to a remote area. Is your friend adventurous? If so, they will definitely get great use out of this.

If your friend is a traveller who cannot live without music, this is the perfect gift for them.
We all know that plastic straws are some of the worst offenders when it comes to single-use plastic. Get your friend a pack of reusable glass or metal straws that they can use throughout their trip without creating unnecessary waste.
You can even support the Kickstarter for The Final Straw, which is a portable reusable straw that fits in your pocket so you can take it anywhere!
Solid shampoo bars or other toiletries
Lush cosmetics make great shampoo bars with pretty tins that will go through airport security with ease. They will also last a lot longer, look better in the shower and don’t use any plastic unlike conventional shampoo.
Alternatively, you can DIY several toiletries such as body lotion or face toner. Homemade gifts are always a thoughtful option.
A water treatment device
Clean water can be hard to come by while travelling, especially when the local tap water isn’t potable. The best option to deal with this without producing too much plastic waste is to use a reliable water treatment device. The life straw is an amazing option as it is a bottle with a built-in treatment device. This way your friend can safely drink water while abroad and on the go!
