Tips for sustainable travel

(from Insight Vacations, http://www.insightvacations.com/us/sustainabletourism/tips.php, edited)

There are many things you can do while traveling to minimise your environmental impact:

  • Buy local produce which reduces air miles incurred in transporting the food to a kitchen for final preparation.
  • Bringing your own water bottle and reuse it.
  • Refuse or reuse plastic bags when shopping.
  • Use water sparingly.  Take short showers instead of baths and hang towels for drying and reuse.
  • Switch lights off & air conditioning off if you are not in the room or don’t need them.
  • Leave as much packaging at home from goods you buy for your trip and recycle as much of this as possible.
  • Use e-brochures as much as possible or recycle or pass along your brochures to a friend when you’re finished.
