Canadian Rockies National Parks

The Canadian Rockies National Parks are incredibly beautiful, and full of adventure. Have you ever seen pictures of some magical destination on social media and thought to yourself, there is no way those colors are real. That’s how I’ve felt each time I visit the Canadian Rockies National Parks and surrounding areas.

700 Billion USD?!? That’s an INSANE amount of money. I find it slightly embaressing that we can’t stop climate change when we have that type of cash at our disposal. AMERICA! That hurts my soul! Has our country become so materialistic and wasteful that we care more about filling our lives with meaningless “things”, then we do the generations that come after us?

Ko Tao Island, Thailand

As a traveler myself, I have seen first hand the affects climate change is having on our planet and those who suffer as a result. Rivers are drying up, communities with them. Cities are sinking, others are flooding. I ask myself, what can I do? How can I make a difference?

Take an active role by being a responsible consumer- buy “Eco-Friendly”. We have SO MUCH POWER as consumers… we decide what goods get produced based on our demand for that good. Don’t buy or “demand” products that are killing our planet! “Eco Friendly” means they are either made with sustainable or recycled materials, prevent waste, and do not harm the environment. By supporting companies and products that are working towards an eco-friendly future- you’re making a difference.

Unique Eco Friendly Gifts

To save you the research (you’re welcome), I’ve put together this list of 13 Unique Eco-Friendly Gifts for travelers, which I hope helps to improve the climate change crisis in some small way. Happy Holiday’s Friends!

Reusable Toiletries Bottles

My favorite part about the travel bottles is that they eliminate the need for single use travel toiletries. Give the gift of green, and help travelers contribute to sustainable travel practices.

PS: recycling a stack of newspapers just 3 feet high saves one tree, how cool is that?

Eco Friendly Bamboo Toothbrush Kit

These sets can come with bamboo toothbrushes, dental floss, and even a bamboo toothbrush holder for safe and hygienic storage. This eco-friendly toothbrush is made from sustainably sourced bamboo wood, so you can opt out of using plastic toothbrushes! The set comes in recyclable packaging, and your purchase will help save the environment in several ways.

Soap Bar & Tin

Naked bar soap will keep thousands of plastic body wash bottles out of our oceans. They’re TSA friendly, and travel much better then leaking soap bottles. I use naked bars for all my shower needs, and there is nothing worse than trying to pack a soggy bar of soap. Grab a tin/soap container to pair with your bar soaps.

Hemp Body Scrubber

Reusable Water Bottle

Never spend money on plastic water bottles again. For the sake of all of us, in addition to the planet. In Michigan, Nestlé Waters has been pumping vast amounts of groundwater out of Michigan’s springs to feed growing consumer demand for freshwater in convenient plastic bottles.

Thats right, your Ice Mountain gets pumped for practically NOTHING out of Michigan’s rivers and lakes. It doesn’t come from a mountain… we have no mountains in Michigan. In 2018 Nestlé requested to the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality to increase pump amounts to 576,000 gallons of water EACH DAY. Draining fresh water fields from the White Pine Springs well in the Great Lakes Basin. Despite deep public opposition, with 80,945 against and 75 in favor – the request was approved by the agency.

Reusable Coffee Mugs

Adventure Savings Box

Gift the gift of experience, with an adventure fund box. The box is a symbol of any and all adventures pulling at your heart. Drop your spare change and fill it while you plan your best adventure yet!

Travel Utensil Kit

Another unique eco friendly gift is a travel utensil kit. Did you know over 500,000,000 plastic straws are used each day in the United States? Why are we generating extreme waste for minimal convenience? Buy a travel utensil kit made from natural materials. They’re free from BPA, phthalates and other cancer-causing toxins plus they don’t kill turtles when you’re done. Buy these for every person you know.

Nomadik Adventure Subscription

Nomadik is a monthly adventure package full of best-in-class gear delivered right to your doorstep. The Nomadik subscription boxes come in multiple packages, making it a great gift opportunity over the holidays, special road trips, family outings, or weekend getaways! Subscriptions are tailored to explorers, campers, hikers and adventurers who appreciate time exploring.

Travel Photo Canvas

Create a travel photo canvas for wall art or travel adventure displays. Check out my Her Life Adventures Etsy Shop for gorgeous travel photography downloads.

Scratch Off Map

I have a scratch off map to keep track of all try adventures in a fun, creative way! Feeling crafty? You can frame the map in a recycled wood frame, and add a hook to make some wall art.

Water Purification Tools

Unfortunately, plastic water bottles are especially popular in developing nations due to lack of clean drinking water. Travelers can bring portable water purification tools to ensure they are not contributing to the plastic takeover.

Reusable Tote Bag

Reduce your plastic use AND carry your everyday essentials with this cute tote. Snag a reusable tote from Wholesome Culture | HerLifeAdventures | #travelbag #ecofriendly #giftideas #giftsfortravel #travelgifts #formen #forwomen

There are 7.7 billion people on Earth. If we join together as a global community and each make small lifestyle changes towards being more eco-friendly and kindness focused – we can make a real and lasting difference. Reduce your plastic use AND carry your everyday essentials with this cute tote.

Airplane Mode Gear

There’s something about airplanes that just lulls me right to sleep. As soon as I step onto the plane my body is in airplane mode. Sleep masks, ear plugs, and comfortable clothing help me stay cozy & rested. Great for time change from overseas or long summer nights in Iceland where it doesn’t get dark at night. Check out my 8 Day itinerary to Iceland HERE!

The Best Cider Mills in Michigan

The fall season in Michigan holds a special place in my heart. I look forward to fall for so many reasons. However, one in particular is my favorite. Eating my way through the best cider mills in Michigan. Those freshly baked warm, soft, homemade cider mill donuts. My fingers covered in delicious cinnamon sugar. Washed down by a refreshing (or warming) cup of freshly made apple cider.

Here’s my list of the best Cider Mills in Michigan!

The best cider mills in Michigan; find out what they are, and why you must go when you visit Michigan. | HerLifeAdventures | #cidermill #cidermill #michigan #falltreats #applecider #homemadedonuts #applepicking #falldesserts

What is a cider mill?

A cider mill is where they mill, grind, and press apples into apple cider! The “mill” is the equipment used to crush the apples, ferment, store, and ship apple juice products. Cider mills are mostly found in Michigan and other midwestern states in the USA. They sell apple cider, and a variety of flavored donuts. Each Michigan cider mill is unique, and locally owned, serving it’s own version of the cider donut combo.

Most are located on orchards, where you can pick your own apples or pumpkins. Others have hayrides, haunted houses, and corn mazes for entertainment. Some cider mills have a shop inside where you can purchase a variety of apple and fall goods such as jams, pies, fresh fruits/veggies, wines, and more.

Animal agriculture is rapidly destroying habitats across the globe and is the leading cause of greenhouse gases. Logan and I made the transition to a vegetarian diet a year ago when we learned of the devastating affects eating meat has on our planet. North America’s factory farming is the main contributor.

Along my travels I started to pay attention to how big my carbon footprint was away from home. Shopping and the bags that came with it were unacceptable. Bringing a reusable shopping bag doesn’t take up space when traveling. You can use it at the airports for your snacks in-between flights. Or there is always the local markets, with food, treats, and other handmade products. It never hurts to bring one, you’ll never know when you need it.

All their products, including laundry detergent, fabric softener, scent booster, oxi booster, odor defense spray, and dishwasher detergents are all vegan and do not contain animal byproduct ingredients. Plus these dryer balls to help save on dryer sheets! I’ve tried all of Dropps products now, and made the switch to Dropps after I tried their Lavender Eucalyptus Laundry Bundles. 

Plastic laundry bottles and dishwasher pouches continue to pollute our oceans and waterways. Dropps packaging is a 100% recyclable, compostable, and repulpable box that doubles as the shipping container. So they’ve thought of everything.

Dropps prides themselves on offering green effective cleaning products that are made right here in the Midwest. Supporting local jobs, communities and small businesses + fair wages. Even their ingredient and packaging suppliers are sourced from companies with their similar values. 

Dropps has an entire ingredient list, so they can show consumers exactly what it is they’re getting in that small Dropp.

Convenience with a conscience.

If everyone took one small simple step to replace everyday products with both eco-responsible + zero waste, can you imagine what a measurable impact on the planet that could be?

Dropps is making sustainability accessible to all, so we can be part of the solution, not the problem. Just look at their list of responsible + sustainable practices: plant-based ingredients, no animal testing, and recyclable and compostable cardboard packaging to eliminate single use plastic. We are all in this together world. Let’s all help save mother earth, one Dropp at a time.

What is Dropps doing to help reduce single use plastic?

Traditional liquid laundry detergents are usually packaged in high density polyethylene (HDPE plastic jugs). A shocking 68% of these bottles are not recycled, and contribute to the approximately 275 metric tons of plastic waste generated on land that goes into our oceans and waterways annually. By offering a recyclable, repulpable, and compostable box for our packaging, we are on our way towards this goal! Help us eliminate single use plastic.

Are your palm oils sourced sustainably?

Yes! We use only RSPO-certified sustainable palm oil. The RSPO has adopted a set of Principles and Criteria that define sustainable palm oil growth and production. These principles and criteria, among many other things, ensure that rainforests are not being cleared to plant palm oil. In addition, the principles and criteria ensure that any land that is planted for palm oil is not encumbered by disputes of land rights and land ownership. The principles and criteria also regulate the health and safety conditions of plantation workers.
