Whether it’s Christmas or Birthday gifts you are hunting for a travelling friend or you simply want to stock up on some travel essentials yourself, most shopping lists focus on consumerism and affiliate links. I’ve decided to go a different route and try and focus on useful shit that also has a bit of a positive impact.
Whether you have a responsible traveller as a friend, an eco-tourist on a mission in the family or simply want a few stocking fillers that give back to the world, these 10 products and ideas will help to make your travel-planning shopping impact a positive.
1. Wee Pal
What it does: Wee Pal is a portable charger for your mobile (or anything with a USB connection). I took this little wizard on a test run through the desert of Oman this month and it packed a good 3/4 phone chargers to keep me snapping away. Any traveller knows thats keeping their devices charged is an essential these days and at a compact size and a price of £25 it’s super handy.
How they help: Wee Pal is one of the products from Power A Life and for each product sold they give a solar charging reading light to a child in Africa which can help studies as well as using renewable energy.
