Are you planning an eco-friendly trip? Do you want to reduce your carbon footprint while you explore the world? Here are tips to help you do that while enjoying your vacation:
1. Turn it off!
If you will be gone for more than a few days, turn off your air conditioner and outdoor water supply. This can prevent possible flooding and unnecessary electricity usage.
2. Grab a bike or take a hike.
While you're on vacation, consider taking Earth-friendly transportation options like biking, walking or taking public transit. Another plus? These transportation options will be cheaper than taking a taxi or renting a car.
Ask your hotel about their recycling policy. If the hotel recycles, make sure to sort your trash accordingly. If you typically use plastic water bottles, consider taking a reusable bottle with you on vacation to use as you travel.
4. Reuse your towels.
Hotel hospitality is a great perk when traveling, but if you can reuse your towels or linens for a couple of days, it will save a lot of water and energy by saving on washing and drying time.
