Eco-travel tool: Lightload Towels are biodegradable, small and cheap!
I recently saw a press release for a product a had to share with you. Lightload Towels are a super-absorbent 36" by 60" beach towels packed into a small metal tin the size of a lib balm container. They were created by an ultra-hiker nicknamed Wideload who apparently knows the value of keeping your travel weight down. I sure could have used these towels during my last camping trip, which was a debacle of over-packing.
Online, the towels are $6.50 individually or down to $1 a piece when bought in bulk. You can also find them at outdoor sports stores, like REI. I'll have to pick some up and give them a test run on our text hiking adventure.
