These days, it's not uncommon to live much of life on the go, especially if you're juggling work, a social life, family commitments, and personal time—or any combination thereof. When time is such a commodity, it's easy to feel like taking an extra few moments to tackle the smallest of tasks, like picking up your morning coffee, can derail your entire day. Fortunately, there are a handful of products designed to travel with you so you never lose your stride. Here are some of our favorites.
These handy wipes are an easy answer to a number of sticky stituations that might pop up in the course of a day spent running from one place to another. More discreet that a bulky package of moist towelettes, these hypoallergenic wipes can help you handle anything that’s thrown your way. Messy burrito lunch? Grimy door handle? Bathroom stall missing toilet paper? Grab a Stall Mates wipe. With no alcohol, parabens, or fragrance of any kind, they’re safe for even the most sensitive areas of the body. And they won't clog properly functioning septic and sewer systems like other traditional wet wipes, so you can flush them when you need to. They're gentle enough for children and pets, too.
In an ideal world, you'd have enough time in the morning to slowly savor your coffee or tea while having a sit-down breakfast. In reality, that's rarely the case. On those days when time is running short but caffeine is a must, Repurpose Hot Cups & Lids are a lifesaver. With an automatic coffeemaker, some quality single-serve pods, and a good to-go cup, you can still get your morning jolt without having to make a separate stop. Repurpose's products are fully insulated to keep your coffee warm even during a full commute and are made of 100 percent renewable plant materials that help cut down on waste. Plus, the secure lids lock into place to prevent spills.
The plethora of fast-food options is a testament to our on-the-go culture. But of course, grab-and-go food isn't always the healthiest way to go, and, during the lunch rush, may not even be the fastest. Skipping meals is no better when you’re in a crunch—so we say, take them with you. This to-go container has an edge over most conventional options because it’s made of stainless steel—which is safer than plastic, and keeps hot foods hot and and cold foods cold. There are also two tiers that allow you to separate courses without fear of them mixing together. If that wasn’t inventive enough, the lid doubles as a plate, leaving you with the feeling of a home-cooked meal, even if you can’t be home for it.
Keeping healthy snacking options on hand is good advice for busy people trying to stay healthy, which is why these stylish bags are a great option. But they can multitask, too! Use them for your bathroom essentials on days when you're showering at the gym or stash your cosmetics in one when you know you'll want to freshen up your makeup before dinner. Traveling with kids or pets? Bring crayons or chew toys along for the ride. The best part is that these bags are machine-washable, so accidental spills won't put them out of commission.
This essential oil blend is perfect for those days when you need a quick reset between appointments or meetings, or need help transitioning into your evening after a particularly hectic day. Made from an assortment of essential oils like coriander, palmarosa, rose geranium, and jojoba oil, this all-natural aromatic mist is touted to help create harmony in your mental and emotional states, and may be particularly beneficial for dealing with PMS, menopause, anxiety, or depression.

Any international traveler, music festival goer, or roadtripper knows the struggle of walking into a public bathroom only to discover there’s no toilet paper—in any of the stalls. Unless you’re willing to cart around your own roll of T.P., there’s never been a good solution to the problem.
Until now. Enter Stall Mates, individually wrapped disposable wet wipes. They’re thin enough to slip into any purse, backpack, or sweatshirt pocket, so they’re ready whenever you need them.
It all started when co-founders and lifelong friends Kevin Corey and Greg Schipf were working construction. With no restroom on site, they found themselves using porta-potties day in, day out. What they wanted was a portable alternative to toilet paper—in the form of something smaller than a huge package of wet wipes.
And just like that, Corey and Schipf had the idea to create Stall Mates. Toss a wipe in your bag, and forget it’s there until you need it—the packaging is meant to hold up for two or three years.
“Even with the wear and tear of being in your purse or luggage for years, the wipes don’t dry out over time,” Corey says.
"Most companies worry about what they’re putting into the ingredients. We actually took the opposite approach and worried about what we would take out."
They’re not only for the bathroom, either. Stall Mates wipes are made with all natural, hypoallergenic ingredients—including cucumber, aloe, and vitamin E—so you can use them as face wipes or baby wipes in a pinch. The gentle formula cleanses effectively, but won’t irritate sensitive skin.
“Most companies worry about what they’re putting into the ingredients. We actually took the opposite approach and worried about what we would take out,” Corey says. “We want to appeal to adults, but at the same time, if a mom needs to wipe her infant’s face, we want her to know it’s totally safe.”
What’s even more impressive is the company’s commitment to sustainability. Most wet wipes and baby wipes aren’t meant to be flushed. They’re too bulky to dissolve in water, so they can clog up pipes and cause all kinds of plumbing problems. Instead, Stall Mates are made from a special substrate that disintegrates in water. They’ve been independently tested and certified flushable and biodegradable. Plus, they’re produced in a facility fueled entirely by solar power.
To further reduce their carbon footprint, Stall Mates plants a tree for every box of wipes sold. The company has partnered up with Trees for the Future, a nonprofit with reforestation projects all over the world. Stall Mates isn’t just about convenient products—it’s a green business trying to leave a positive impact on the environment.
After you try these convenient, natural, and eco-friendly wipes, you’ll never want to leave home without one again.
