Who has never realized one day that he had forgotten something important to put in his bag while going to work, shopping or even while going to play sports ?

We've all been in this kind of situation before! For example, that unbearable feeling of a runny nose when we didn't have a handkerchief . What a horror, isn't it?

Today, we are therefore going to tell you which are the eco-responsible essentials to put in your sports bag or in your pockets in order to spend a running , cycling or hiking session in the best conditions.


1 – Tissues in your gym bag to avoid embarrassing situations 

First, the famous handkerchiefs (if you don't want to find yourself in an embarrassing situation)! Moreover, know that it is very common to want to blow your nose during physical exertion.

Indeed, by activating your respiratory rate, it increases the work of humidifying the nasal walls and therefore the runny nose. In short, the mucous membranes of the nose produce more mucus during physical exertion than when you are rested.

2 – The small snack to counter energy drops

For small hollows and to avoid low energy, we advise you to always have something to snack on in your backpack . And, even if it means taking a break to eat, as long as it's good!

3 – The water bottle in your sports bag against dehydration

The essential! If there's one thing you should have in your backpack , it's water ! According to the IRBMS (Research Institute for the Well-being of Medicine and Sport), it is advisable to drink during exercise , every 20 minutes, one to two glasses of water , ie 200 ml.

The GOBI brand

For this, we present to you a brand of water bottles 100% made in France , eco-designed and customizable ! Remember to hydrate yourself well and in small quantities during your physical activity.

4 – Deodorant to fight against bad odors

Drafts during a run or a bike race are never pleasant! But if you cover yourself too much, you risk being too hot… What a dilemma! Of course we have the solution!

For this we advise you to always have a headband or a neckerchief like ours. Very easy to slip into your sports bag because they are thin, these accessories made from recycled materials are also stretchy and keep your ears warm and your forehead dry! The little extra?
