Bamboo will do: from bamboo straws to toothbrushes!

Bali is a tropical island, which means bamboo everywhere! And they are just as good looking as they are sustainable. A nice musthave for smoothielovers, cooking fans, and nature freaks is the bamboo straw. Don’t forget to bring some for yourself, they will surely remind you about Bali instantly! A little extra is to look out for the brushes which some shops sell along with the bamboo. That might be convenient! And who says souvenirs can’t be for practical reasons?! Bamboo toothbrushes are good for the planet too! <3

Bamboo straws are an amazing first step, but there’s more! We listed some tips on sustainable travelling for you.

The coconut remedy: coconut bowls and amazing oil

We’re crazy about coconuts. But let’s admit, they are not only delicious, they also offer multiple ways of use. The coconut bowls will do an amazing job for your homemade dishes, (homemade nasi campur!), and the coconut oil is what your skin and hair might need after some beach and surfing sessions!

Bali art and design

As you have been in Bali, you may have seen the different areas around Ubud, where every area has its craft. There is one for various materials like wood, silver and stone. This is the place where you can find beautiful wooden decorations, little statues, silver accessoires, a little stone carved statue, or any other beautiful creature that the areas are famous for. Let’s not forget about the other typical Bali design products, like a beautiful sarong, a cute (ankle) bracelet, or a nice dress. Ceramik artwork can also be a gorgeous gift. The things that seem to be common here can be a big surprise for people in your home country! Oh and stylish as it is, how about a Bintang shirt or cap? The fact that your friends or family haven’t been with you on your trip, doesn’t mean they can’t have a tourist look at home! 🙂
