Green Travel Tips

Green Travel Tips

  •  
    Buy from local vendors, not only are you supporting them, less fossil fuels are used in transport.
  •  
    Use public transit. Just as you would at home, try to use bikes, your feet, and public transportation instead of renting a car or hiring a taxi cab.
  •  
    Stop receiving your newspaper while you're away, you can possibly donate it to a local school.
  •  
    Make you hotel a green one, check for green hotels at http://greenhotels.com/index.php
  •  
    Take only the brochures or maps that are necessary. Return others or all to the brochure stand when finished.
  •  
    Buy antiques for souvenirs, instead of cheap plastic ones, you'll probably enjoy them longer anyway.
  •  
    During your hotel stay, let management know that it is not necessary to change your towels and sheets every day.
  •  
    When you leave your hotel room, turn off the AC/heat, lights, TV and radio. Close the drapes.
  •  
    Try cross country skiing, without using a ski lift, and you'll actually burn more calories too.
  •  
    Avoid the $4 bottles of water and opt for a green alternative - your own reusable bottle.
