Green Gift Guide: Globetrotters

Antoine de Saint-Exupery, the French writer and aviator, once wrote, "He who would travel happily must travel light." We couldn't agree more. However, we also know that to make the earth equally happy, we need to keep our carbon footprint as light as can be when going abroad. Whether your favorite traveler is a frequent flier for business, an all-around adventurer, an unstoppable day-tripper, or a shameless tourist, help lighten the load—and the planet's—by giving green globetrotter-approved loot.

From durable, recycled luggage to modern, multi-tasking men's and women's wear, hip solar chargers, cutting-edge water purifiers and eco-friendly excursions, there's something to satisfy any type of sightseer. But if you're buying for someone who'd rather not ever leave home, check our other gift guides for gadgets, cookware, home decor, clothes, and toys that will make any homebody happy.
