Save Your Luggage (and the Environment) with These Bags

Plastic bags are great for holding your toiletries when traveling, but terribly wasteful for the environment. These travel pouches from Lewis N. Clark are a much more eco-friendly choice. They’re reusable, and much sturdier than a standard zip-lock bag.

Price and Where to Buy: At the time of publication, a three-pack of the travel pouches was available on Amazon starting at $17.71 and Lewis N. Clark’s website for $24.99.

How It Rates:

  • Usefulness: 9/10. These pouches will contain any leaks that may occur, are water-resistant, see-through for airport security, and are reusable. They come in small, medium, and large sizes, and will fit all of your toiletries.
  • Value: 7/10. You can reuse these over and over again, which makes the initial investment worth it in the long run.
  • Durability: 10/10. The pouches are made from a durable laminated mesh, and the zippers are very high quality.
  • Cool Factor: 8/10. These look much better than carrying your stuff in a ratty plastic sandwich bag!

Final Verdict: If you’re still using disposable bags every time you travel, it’s time to upgrade to reusable pouches like these.
