1) STATE Bags

STATE Bags stylish totes and fanny packs to luggage and backpacks

From stylish totes and fanny packs to luggage and backpacks, STATE Bags has your travel needs covered this holiday season. Not only do we love their fun colors and designs, but we also love that they give back in a big way.

For every bag purchased, STATE supports American children and families in need by donating fully packed backpacks, funding special projects with charities and schools, and spreading awareness about social injustices.

We especially love the best-selling Lorimer Fanny Pack that comes in multiple colors and in a water-resistant material. You can even choose a longer strap if you prefer to wear it cross-body. STATE also makes some of the most adorable (and functional) kids bags we’ve seen.

3) Welly

Welly first aid kit

If you are traveling with children this holiday season, these first-aid kits are for you! And if you’re tired of peeling a sticky band-aid off a screaming child, well you’ll definitely love Welly.

This innovative and fun brand is known for their cute and compact kits that include high-quality, latex-free bandages made from flexible fabric to avoid the “ouch!” Oh, and they are a B Certified Corporation too, which means they are dedicated to using business as a force for good and follow a high standard of ethical social and environmental practices.

There are travel kits of all sizes, but we recommend this first aid kit that includes single-use hand sanitizers as well as ointments, or this more compact quick-fix kit to throw in your purse and have handy at all times.

4) Mable

Mable eco-friendly bamboo bathroom products

Each year, billions of used plastic toothbrushes end up in landfills, polluting the environment and harming the wildlife. And let’s face it, when we travel, we make the situation even worse. How many of us are guilty of buying that cheap travel toothbrush and just tossing it in the trash before we leave?!

Enter Mable – a line of stylish and eco-friendly bamboo bathroom products, perfect for on-the-go. Let’s keep the oceans and forests that we are traveling to see, plastic-free.

Mable’s new Bamboo Toothbrush Travel Case is durable and lightweight, and we love their self-standing toothbrushes for both kids and adults.
