White Rabbit Bralette & Underwear

Wireless and comfy, sustainably made from bamboo cotton by a family owned factory that employs women with fair wages and benefits.

Thrifted Levi Jeans

Jeans, though bulky, can be worn a few times before washing and are a wardrobe staple, so it’s good to take at least one pair! Always check your local thrift store before buying new, you’d be surprised at what you can find.

Ash & Rose Top

Their core values are sustainability, fair labor, and empowering women. And their floral tank top is perfect for traveling, as it weighs virtually nothing and is perfect for the summer heat!

Maggie’s Organics Socks

Socks are undeniably important when traveling, so why not take along some of Maggie’s US based organic cotton socks? They work directly with GOTS certified farmers, and often pay them even more than the established fair trade wage.

Pela Phone Case

You don’t want to be in a foreign country with a broken phone. Make sure it’s protected by a case, like this one from Pela, which is plastic free and made from ‘starch-based biopolymer, recycled materials and flax straw waste’ — a.k.a., it’s eco-friendly!

Laadi Designs Sandals

Handcrafted in Oaxaca, Mexico, these sandals are comfy, light, and sturdy. They’ll take up barely any room in your carry-on! Plus, for every purchase money is donated to She’s the First, which helps girls get to school.

Terra Thread Backpack

We can’t say enough good things about Terra Thread! They are fair-trade certified, GOTS certified, and their products are actually affordable!! It makes the perfect ethical carry-on.

Coolest sunglasses ever? Peep them here!

Kristen’s been having a blast taking her ethically packed luggage to the other side of the world! Stay tuned for our next post which will feature Jess’s suitcase full of more good stuff ❤
