Why Sustainable Travel is Important

A Guide to Eco-Friendly Adventures with Monarc

In today's world, the importance of sustainable travel cannot be overstated. As we become more aware of our environmental impact, making conscious choices about how we travel is crucial. Sustainable travel is not just about choosing eco-friendly destinations or reducing our carbon footprint; it’s also about making smarter decisions regarding the gear we use. At Monarc, we offer a range of sustainable bags made from recycled plastic bottles, perfect for the eco-conscious traveler. Here’s why sustainable travel is important and how our products, such as the duffel backpack, crossbody sling, and travel accessories, can help you travel responsibly.

The Importance of Sustainable Travel

Environmental Impact

Travel, particularly air travel, contributes significantly to carbon emissions. According to the International Air Transport Association (IATA), aviation accounts for about 2% of global carbon emissions. While reducing air travel isn't always feasible, we can mitigate our impact by making sustainable choices.

Packing Light: One way to reduce your carbon footprint is by packing light. Lighter luggage means less weight and therefore less fuel consumption. Monarc's 40L travel duffel backpack, made using 50 recycled plastic bottles, is designed to be lightweight yet spacious enough to carry all your essentials, making it an ideal choice for the environmentally conscious traveler.

Reducing Plastic Waste

Plastic pollution is one of the most pressing environmental issues. Each year, millions of tons of plastic waste end up in the oceans, harming marine life and ecosystems. By choosing products made from recycled materials, we can help reduce the amount of plastic waste. Monarc is proud to offer sustainable bags made from recycled plastic bottles, helping to keep plastic out of our oceans and landfills.

Recycled Materials: Our travel settra series, for example, includes a variety of bags made using 100 recycled plastic bottles. This series features everything you need for the perfect travel set, including the 40L travel duffel backpack, ensuring you travel sustainably and stylishly.
