Grand Trunk (www.grandtrunkgoods.com), formerly The Travel Hammock, announced today that it has added several new environmentally-conscious products to its stable of “Goods for the Road.”

“The Grand Trunk customer tends to be eco-conscious already, but these days, everyone is looking for more quick and simple ways to pitch in to reduce waste and protect the environment for future generations of campers, hikers and nature-lovers,” said Jon Neff, Vice President of Sales, Grand Trunk. “Sustainability, durability and convenience – that is what each of our new eco-friendly products are designed to deliver.”

Eco Travel Bagâ„¢
Each year, billions of plastic bags end up as litter, eventually breaking down into tiny toxic bits that pollute our soil, rivers, lakes and oceans. In an effort to reduce the waste caused by plastic bags, Grand Trunk has introduced the Eco Travel Bagâ„¢ (ETB). The ETB offers a portable solution for toting groceries and other store-bought items responsibly (using the ETB can save up to 500 plastic shopping bags per person, per year), and can also be used as a beach bag, laundry bag, gym bag, lunch bag and more.

The ETB is made of 100 percent parachute nylon silk (the same material as Grand Trunk's signature travel hammocks and parasheets), comes in a variety of fashionable colors (light blue, royal blue, forest green, olive green, crimson, orange and pink) and two convenient sizes – large ($14.99 retail), which will carry up to 50 pounds, and small ($9.99 retail), which will support up to 35 pounds. Both bags weigh two ounces or less, and the smaller bag is also available with a keychain attachment, so the ETB goes wherever you go.

Grand Trunk Organic Outdoor Incense
Mosquito repellent is an essential for camping trips, picnics and outdoor entertaining, but many repellents can be foul-smelling and packed with toxic ingredients. Grand Trunk's hand-rolled, chemical-free ayurvedic incense is produced in Bali by the same group that provides the incense for Buddhist temples across the island. Each stick is organic, made with wild harvested botanicals found locally, naturally repels mosquitoes, burns for up to 90 minutes, and has a pleasing scent.

Additionally, Grand Trunk is now using recycled cardboard to create all of its point-of-purchase displays.
