There is nothing grosser, not to mention more dehumanizing, than accidentally wearing flip flops or flats (or any other shoes that don't require some kind of socks) to the airport: You only remember once you line up for security that you're going to have to kick off your kicks and walk barefoot on a very public, very filthy floor.
Get through airport security fast with these helpful travel tips.
Enter Eco Living's new, TSA-friendly Biodegradable Travel Booties ($5.95 for two pairs), which not only serve the handy purpose of protecting you from germs and humiliation (well, wearing booties is still kind of embarrassing, but anyway), but also save you the guilt of filling landfills. (These are compostable.) Win-win! Oh and P.S.: If any of you out there actually use shower caps, they make a green version of those, too.
