Shopping With a Purpose, Packing With a Plan and Leaving Without a Trace!
It’s 5 o’clock on a Friday and your couch or local bar are calling, we know the feeling! But, what if we told you that you could combine the relaxation of your couch with the release of socialising with your friends without having to deal with the aftermath of drinking or the guilt of wasting a beautiful weekend? It’s possible, and all you need is yourself, some family or friends, and a few pieces of affordable equipment. Camping is not only one of the most cost-effective ways to spend your weekend but it also provides a release from reality that will leave you feeling mentally and physically refreshed to tackle the new week.
The main discouragement from booking a camping trip is often the organisation and packing needed before you can reap the benefits of your trip. When packing for a camping trip it is easy to get carried away with “just in case” items that eventually add up to needing to carry an empty bag that you likely won’t even reach for during your trip.
Our keywords when packing for a camping trip: Mindfulness and Minimalism.
How to pack mindfully? Only bring items that serve a purpose and will definitely be used. This means no more “just in case” items that you almost certainly won't need. Mindfulness when camping is also largely about what you pack and what you plan to do with these items after the trip. Buying disposable cutlery, for example, is mindful of your own time and energy but is the least mindful thing you can do regarding the planet.
Our solution? Eco-friendly outdoor cutlery that can be disposed of without a prolonged effect on the environment. This is mindfulness in its entirety from shopping with a purpose, packing with a plan and leaving without a trace.
A minimalist approach to packing works hand-in-hand with mindfulness but is also quite literally what its name suggests: packing the minimum amount of things that take up the least amount of space. But, this doesn’t mean you have to give up your comfort by not packing things that are necessary to enjoy the experience. Taking your dining table and chairs with you? Not recommended. But, this doesn’t mean you have to be left eating on the floor with your back aching, bugs climbing in your food and a branch poking in a precarious place.
Our solution? Things that fold! Foldable chairs and tables are a great way to enjoy the comfort of your home whilst camping without overpacking. Foldable camping gear is a long-term investment for many camping trips and outdoor events to come!
Our range of camping gear and eco-friendly kitchenware has been carefully curated with your comfort in mind and through our core value of preserving and respecting our environment!
