Packing cubes are a game changer for any traveller as it takes away the hassle of trying to neatly fold and fit everything into a suitcase or sustainable backpack and remembering where you packed everything. You can place small accessories and items like battery charges, power cords, undies and socks into a packing cube and this will stop it from moving about– saving you time from having to fish it out. Packing cubes are versatile too and can be used as a toiletries or cosmetics bag and laundry bag, separating your clean clothing from your dirty ones.

So if you’re planning a weekend getaway or just taking a work trip, make sure to simplify your travel packing with these ethical and eco-friendly packing cubes:
