Anyone who loves to get out in nature and go camping knows that the key to a good time in the wilderness is having the right setup. It’s one of those hobbies that’s more of a longterm investment than a fleeting interest. Of course, you need to start with the essentials; a tent, swags, sleeping bags, and pillows, esky, chairs, tables etc. before slowly adding things like camping stoves and reusable cutlery sets, but it’s those little additions (like the right cutlery) that make camping a hassle-free activity.
Considering the nationwide push to reduce plastic waste — just recently Coles announced its commitment to reducing their pasting waste by no longer selling single-use plastic tableware products like cups, plates, bowls, straws and cutlery from 1 July 2021 — it might be time to start stocking up on those essential reusable items.
Switching to sustainable and reusable products like cutlery and tableware when you go camping will help to divert millions of kilos of single-use plastic from landfill each year. Plus, if you’re camping out in nature, it only feels right to do your bit for mother earth.
Ahead, we’ve rounded up some budget-friendly reusable cutlery sets that you can get delivered to your door. From solo sets to sets that feed the whole family, there is something for everyone.

Each of these single cutlery sets is designed for people on the go who want to avoid using single-use plastic cutlery. They often come with a knife, fork, spoon, straw and carry case. Some even come with a straw cleaner and a set of chopsticks.
Reusable cutlery sets for Camping/Travel:
