Zero Waste Packing

aisharebeccawritesJune 11, 2016

I’m off on my travels next week, to Slovakia for a friends wedding.

As I’m a new convert to the zero waste lifestyle, I have tried incredibly hard to pack as minimal and zero waste as possible. Usually, for a weeks travel I would have a humungous suitcase that would have to go in the cargo hold, but this time round I’ve got my packing down to on cabin size bag and 1 rucksack. #gome

So for 1 week in Slovakia I have packed as follows:

  • 2 Pairs of shoes (would’ve been one, if I didn’t have the wedding)
  • 1 Pair of trainers (for walking)
  • 1 Pair of flip flops ( mostly for when walking about the hotel)
  • 1 Thin Jumper (Slovakia has good summers
  • 2 Cardigans
  • 4 T-Shirts
  • 2 Vest Tops
  • 1 Long top
  • 1 Pair of pyjamas
  • 8 Underwear’s (One for each day, plus one extra as I am on my period )
  • 4 Bras
  • 3 Dress (One Maxi)
  • 2 Pairs of shorts
  • 1 Jumpsuit
  • 1 Evening dress
  • 1 Wedding outfit (skirt, top ,blazer-and not forgetting my amazing fascinator)
  • 1 Evening bag
  • 1 Day bag


The other items in my suitcase are my essentials:

Wash Bag

  • Flannel
  • Shower cap
  • Lush-Full of Grace serum bar
  • Lush-9 to 5 cleansing lotion
  • Lush Celestial face moisturiser
  • Hay fever tablets
  • Shampoo & conditioner
  • Powder
  • Mini deodorant
  • Toothbrush/paste
  • Mini Perfume (Mines Taylor Swift)



Period Wet Bag Stash


  • 1 x small wet bag -with 2 zip compartments (this also has a handy loop to allow it to be hung on a door)
  • 2 x menstrual cups – Me Luna sport small & Lena cup small
  • 5 x panty liners (cup back up)
  • 4 x regular pads

I kept my stash small as  I’ll be coming towards the end of my periods when I’m away.

 Make-Up Bag

*Please note as I’m still switching all my products to cruelty free, some products are not yet animal friendly -I’m working on it. If there is no link to the product it has been discontinued.*




Re-Usable Make Up Wipes

I bought my re-usable make up wipe from website Boobalou. They are from honouryourflow, who also make CSP. They come in a pack of 12 and are made from the scraps of fabrics left over from making CSP. They are mostly organic cotton velour or organic cotton fleece and come in a mixture of colours.



AND of course my trusty Klean Kanteen water bottle (you can get this from Amazon), which I’m yet to do a review on!

My List does seem extensive but they all fit into the one tiny cabin sized suitcase:



Not bad for a beginner, I reckon. The list is a bit extensive, but it all fits comfortably into the case and I still had room as I rolled everything. That’s the trick-roll it all. As time goes on I’ll buy and pack less I hope.
