Packing your suitcase - but smart and sustainable please

Packing your suitcase - that's how almost every start to a vacation begins. And the best thing is that the whole thing can become a very sustainable part of the planning and really boost the anticipation. If you pack cleverly, you save a lot of space and protect the environment at the same time. Protecting the environment by packing suitcases the right way? That's right! In this blog post, we'll provide you with some tips and tricks for your sustainable packing experience

Let's get started with packing your suitcase: I pack my suitcase and take with me 


The destination has long been chosen and now it's time for the big packing? Here's what you can pay attention to if you want to pack your suitcase properly: 

1. collect and think over 
First, collect everything on a bed or table that you would like to take with you. Look at your selection carefully and think about how many of these clothes you would wear in everyday life at the same time and temperature. Most of the time you will need less clothes than you would pack. It is also best to check the weather forecast of your destination. It is also advisable to consciously choose your clothes according to color. Take a look at our video for inspiration. This way you can make sure that you can combine your clothes perfectly with each other and that you can wear much more with each other. 

2. multiple use of items 
Disposable products are a bad choice when it comes to sustainability. That's why we recommend repackaging items like shampoo or dishwashing liquid into reusable bottles. Cotton cloths or dish towels can also be used instead of paper towels and are much more sustainable. 

3. reduction of packaging materials 
Another important aspect is the reduction of packaging materials. Here it is a good idea to store cosmetic products or other small items in reusable bags or containers. This not only saves space, but also avoids unnecessary waste. 

4. roll up instead of folding 
When it comes to packing clothes, rolling them up is often the better choice. This saves space and the clothes will be less wrinkled than when folded. You can also watch the video to see exactly how to do this. It is also a good idea to store clothes in reusable cotton bags to avoid using plastic bags, but still be able to protect the clothes. 

5. use sustainable materials 
When choosing suitcases and bags, you should look for sustainable materials. Here, for example, there are suitcases with recycled materials, such as our vegan suitcases. An investment is worthwhile, convince yourself. 

6. pack durable items 
When traveling, it's worth taking durable items such as a reusable water bottle or lunch box. Not only does this save you money, but it also reduces the use of disposable products. WinWin! 

So, all in all, there are many ways to be sustainable when packing a suitcase. By using reusable items and reducing packaging materials, you can not only save space, but also actively do something for the environment. With a few simple tricks, packing can be made sustainable quickly and easily. 

Packing suitcases in smart layers 


Smart is the one who starts packing his suitcase early. If you then notice that you are still missing important utensils, you can quickly stock up on them. When you start packing your suitcase, pay attention to which utensils are predestined for which part of the suitcase. What helps you? Simple and practical - the layer system. 

1st layer
Start with heavy utensils (books, shoes, jackets etc.)
2nd layer
           
Fill the gaps of the first layer (e.g. with cosmetics, charging cables, etc.)
3rd layer
Clothing (tops, sweatshirts, sweaters, pants)
4th layer
Fill the gaps of the third layer (socks, swimwear, sunglasses)
 5th layer        
Now follows all the essentials so you can access them quickly in case of emergency.

If you don't necessarily want to fill some smaller items in the gaps and have them all together, a beautycase will help. There's even room for your hairdryer in the interior slip pockets. Even a laptop can be stored in the padded compartment. 

What is allowed in the suitcase? 


What is allowed when packing a suitcase, of course, plays a role primarily for air travel. Here the regulation of your luggage already starts with the weight. As a rule, a suitcase should not exceed the maximum weight of 20 kg. Packed too much? Then additional costs will be incurred. So it is better to take to heart step 1 - collect and consider - at the beginning of our blog post. The dimensions of the suitcase must also be observed. Always adhere to the specifications of the respective airline. 

That not everything may be carried in the hand luggage, is partly known. Otherwise, take a look at our hand luggage packing list. But not everything is allowed in your suitcase either. 

Your suitcase may not contain the following, among other things:

  • Lithium-ion batteries (batteries, cell phone, laptop)
  • Lighters and matches
  • Lighter gas for refilling
  • Camping stoves
  • Pyrotechnics
  • Varnishes, paint, thinners
  • Stun guns and pepper spray
  • Ammunition, weapons, acids
  • Pure alcohol 

Good to know: Country-specific prohibitions and customs regulations must also be observed. You should also be aware of what is prohibited in the country of arrival. This includes, for example, counterfeit brand clothing or parts of protected animal species. In the EU, securities, cash and checks over 10,000 euros must also be declared. 

Checkliste – everything in? 


Not sure if you have thought of everything? No problem, just check our list below. 

In any case, you must have:
  • Travel documents / copies thereof (passport, ticket, etc.)
  • Chargers for your electronics
  • Hygiene items (toothbrush and pasta, sunscreen, moisturizer, brush, shampoo, soap)
  • Outerwear (ideally well-combined)
  • Enough pants
  • Socks and underwear
  • Pajamas
  • Changing shoes
  • Bathing shoes (if it will be a beach or spa vacation)
  • Towels, bed sheets (If not available at destination) 

Also important are:
  • Your vaccination certificate
  • Insect repellent
  • Disinfectant spray
  • Painkillers
  • Feminine hygiene articles
  • Contraceptives 

But beware: For some countries of arrival, you will need proof that you have taken your medication. Check the travel regulations in advance, so that you can take care of a certified certificate in time. 

Not necessarily with must, but can:
  • Cosmetics (make-up utensils, nail file, etc.)
  • Jewelry
  • Travel detergent
  • Sportswear
  • Especially dense rainwear
  • Bag for worn laundry
  • Tea lights for cozy evenings
