Camping with Style Camping Blog | Activities • Glamping • Travel • Adventure

Bamboo camping plates and cutleryInstead of plastic or melamine, I now use bamboo plates and cutlery when camping

Traditionally, camping gear was utilitarian and often nasty looking, made from green or white plastic. Increasingly though, forward thinking camping manufacturers like Outwell and Vango are using more sustainable materials like Bamboo, which are not only far more aesthetically pleasing, but also more eco-friendly compared to their plastic counter-parts.

The featured camping and active outdoors products are more eco-friendly than plastic alternatives commonly available on the camping market.
