Going GREEN while traveling through airport security!

Tip #1: Pack smart and pack light

Suitcase

Did you know the more weight an airplane carries, the more fuel is used, and the more gases are emitted into the atmosphere? Bet you don’t want to be THAT person! You’re smart; know what you can bring though security.

Tip #2: Reduce waste and save some money by bringing a reusable water bottle

So you can’t bring H20 or any other liquids more than 3.4 oz. (well there are some exceptions) through security, but you CAN bring an empty bottle. Just fill it up on your way to boarding your flight after screening. Bobby Boucher will be proud!

Tip #3: Reuse…Recycle! Use reusable 3-1-1 bags and bottles

By filling a reusable 3.4 oz. bottle of your full size products you already have at home, you can also save money on the mini versions.  Remember to place them in a reusable quart size bag.
