Because taking the holiday of a lifetime doesn’t have to cost the Earth…

Suitcase

A recent study found that almost 41 percent of people forget to pack at least one important holiday essential. Apparently the UK alone are wasting a collective £118 million on replacing forgotten holiday items! We hate seeing people wasting money (and all that over-spending is consuming for the planet too)!

In fact, the study revealed that people were more likely to remember fancy dress items and snacks than some pretty obvious essentials. It may be hard to believe that people could forget some of the things on the list below, but sometimes it’s the most obvious things that slip your mind.

If you’re just about to embark on an awesome adventure make sure you remember to pack the top ten forgotten holiday essentials…

1. Shoes
2. Mobile phone chargers
3. Sun cream
4. A holiday read
5. Glasses
6. Toothpaste
7. Toothbrush
8. Mobile phone
9. Flip flops
10. Passport
