7 Eco-Friendly Travel Tips
On your next vacation, travel smarter and more earth-friendly. Just by making a few changes in your travel routine, you can have an impact on your wallet and the environment.
Do Not Disturb
If you can’t find a “green” hotel option, you can still make a difference. Reuse your bed linens and towels. Call the front desk to request that your room not be restocked with fresh linens and that the toiletries not be replenished (it will be tough resisting the urge to stock up on sample-size soaps, we know).
If the hotel doesn’t recycle, you still can. Carry your water bottle and newspaper with you until you find a proper receptacle, and be sure to let the management know you would like a recycling program offered to guests.
You can also make a difference simply by taking shorter showers and by turning off the lights, TV, and air conditioner when you leave the rooms.
