Tips for Traveling Sustainably

Every little bit helps when it comes to protecting our planet; after all we’ve only got one! Take a look at these green travel ideas for your next trip:

Purchase Carbon Credits

Offset your carbon footprint as a traveler by purchasing carbon credits which you can donate towards reforestation or renewable energy projects. Check out Sustainable Travel International to see how big your travel footprint is.

Fly Non-Stop

Airplanes emit a large percentage of their carbon emissions during takeoff and landing. Book a non-stop flight when possible. It’s more ecological and often times more convenient. 

Stay in Green Accommodations

Check out sites like Green Hotels Association to find eco-friendly hotels to stay at. Or check the sustainability policies in place at other hotels you’re interested in.

Reduce Your Laundry

Hotel’s use a lot of energy for all their laundry – that’s a lot of hot water! Use your sheets and towels for more than one day and help reduce their energy use.

Go Biking

Instead of exploring via taxi or other vehicle, take in the sights using one of Earth’s most eco-friendly forms of transportation – the bicycle! Plus it’s often less expensive to rent a bike for the day than taking a cab or renting a car.
