5 Products to Camp Like an Eco Pro

1) REUSABLE BAMBOO CUTLERY

If you didn't already guess, here at CasusGrill, we LOVE bamboo. Bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants in the world that releases more oxygen into the environment than other resources making it a very sustainable resource. If that weren't enough, bamboo also absorbs more carbon dioxide from the air than cotton OR timber.  

It's 2018 and there is no longer any excuse for buying plastic silverware (or plastic anything for that matter).

Plastic is terrible for the environment and takes up to 1000 years to decompose.

By buying plastic-alternatives, not only will you save yourself money but you will do your part in saving our planet. With plastic, you use it once and then throw it in the garbage. With bamboo, you use it many times over years before it becomes unusable. I have linked below one of my favourite bamboo product sites, and *BONUS* they also have a compostable section if you really need something for one one-time use.

2) BIODEGRADABLE WASTE BAGS

These trash bags are 100% compostable, meet the stringent requirements of municipal composting programs, and are BPI certified.

Want to know the best part? They're the same/comparably priced to Glad bags. How can you argue with that? 

If you have an Amazon Prime account, they can be delivered right to your door within two days. #winning

3) ORGANIC INSECT REPELLENT 

DEET causes a lot of hard to the environment. And I don't know about you, but I do NOT like spraying it all over my body, either. Especially those who have sensitive skin, it can be very harmful

bubble and bee Organic uses essential oils to repels ticks, fleas, and mosquitoes with 100% EPA-Approved Active Ingredients that are also certified organic.

You can even apply the organic insect repellent to all exposed skin to repel biting bugs. It is pretty amazing!

4) INFLATABLE SOLAR POWERED LANTERN

This 100% Solar-Powered LED lantern provided up to 12 hours of light on a full charge. It is also completely waterproof up to 30m and floats when it is inflated!

Just like the CasusGrill, it's lightweight and perfect for camping, hiking, biking, kayaking, fishing, hunting, or any other outdoor activity!

5) REUSABLE LIGHTER 

My personal favourite is the Windmill StormProof lighter, linked below. It can be a little pricy compared to other lighters, but it is waterproof, stormproof and my personal favourite: wind proof! 

They last for years. I have a friend who has owned his for 10 years! Mine broke after a couple years of use, however, I sent it back and got a brand new one for free.
