Choosing a sustainable accommodation, which has put into practice and carries out important environmental choices such as the use of renewable energy, is undoubtedly the best choice, but it is not always possible. When you can’t find eco-friendly accommodations, or whenever you are on vacation, you can reduce your environmental impact with small and simple actions. Because it is important to always do our part to safeguard the planet. Every action counts and makes a difference.
Here are the simple ways to lower the impact of your holiday, regardless of where you choose to stay
You won’t be paying the bill, but it’s not a good reason to leave the lights on when it’s not needed. Turn them off whenever you leave the room. Also, if you don’t use the minibar, turn it off and try not to use the air conditioning if you don’t really need it.
Collaborate to the separate collection of waste
Most of us are already used to doing it at home, so why stop while traveling? Follow the rules of the territory where you are and always carry out recycling.
Do not wastewater
Water is a precious resource and should be treated as such, even on vacation. Take short showers and turn off the tap while brushing your teeth!
Choose local or organic food
Your choices regarding food and restaurants can also lower the impact of your holiday. It is always better to choose local products, which have not traveled to arrive to your table, and organic products, grown without the use of chemicals. Also consider vegetarian dishes, remembering that intensive farming is much more polluting.
Travel in a green way
If in everyday life it is more difficult to give up the car, on vacation you can easily forget it. If you choose to walk or ride a rented bike you will admire your destination in a better way, while using public transport you can live just like the locals!
