I’m always in the market for gear that makes green travel — and green living — easier. The folks at Brincatti were kind enough to send me their travel bottle kit and a refillable spray bottle to try out. So far, I’ve loved them both. Here’s why.
Travel Bottle Kit: Green Traveling Made Easy
It’s so wasteful to use the tiny bottles of shampoo that hotels supply, so I bring my own. Unfortunately, I’m usually reusing the tiny hotel bottles, which are difficult to fill up and end up making a mess. Plus, they don’t hold enough shampoo for a longer trip. The bottles in Brincatti’s travel bottle kit are much bigger at 3 oz. each and have wider mouths, which makes filling them a breeze. They even come with adhesive labels that you can add to each bottle for shampoo, condition, lotion, sunscreen, etc.
Each kit contains four bottles, three of which have flip caps and one of which has a spray top. The kit comes with a TSA-approved plastic carrier, too. The only downside to the plastic carrier is that there’s no room for other liquids, so if you want to bring toothpaste or deodorant, you’ll need to bring a different TSA-approved plastic bag that can hold everything. Overall, though, Brincatti’s travel bottle kit is great. You can buy one for just $9.99.
Refillable Spray Bottle: Green Living at Home
If you make your own cleaning products, you’ll love Brincatti’s refillable spray bottle. Unlike many spray bottles, this one has a wide-mouth opening that makes filling it up simple and mess-free. I love using it around the house.
I use cloth diapers for my 10-month-old son and had been looking for a way to make using cloth wipes easy. I ordered handmade wipes from Etsy, but needed a simple way to get them wet right before I used them. The Brincatti refillable spray bottle is the perfect solution. I made a homemade cloth diaper wipe solution and was able to mix it right in the bottle, thanks to its widemouth feature; no dirty dishes to clean up afterward.
The bottle would also be great for homemade household cleaners, vinegar, or even a marinade for meat or veggies. At just $3.65, the refillable spray bottle is a worthwhile investment for green living at home.
