We came across this when searching at the health food store for something that would last a long time and would not take up a lot of space in our gear during the upcoming around the world trek.

In addition to not containing any harmful products, these things are available with absolutely no plastic packaging. If you want a handle to grab on to, you can buy the kind with a plastic grip attached to the bottom. Either way, it’s much less plastic in the landfill, controls odors just fine, and is much healthier for you. Another plus? They last for an incredibly long time. We’ve had ours for over a year and it is still going strong. I’m sure there are other brands out there. A friend showed me one years ago that was rounder. Not sure what her brand was, but she’s sworn by this type of aluminum free product for years.
