Travelling has always been about opening your mind and discovering new things. A huge part of this is experiencing different landscapes and cultures: from Italy to Norway, these differing environments and their cultures are part of what makes our planet so unique.
Check out our tips below totravel in style while keeping our planet healthy!
Use Reef-Safe Sunscreen
Purchase Reef Safe Sunscreen for your time in the ocean. Common chemical sunscreen ingredients, like oxybenzone and octinoxate, can wash off of your body while you are swimming and damage the coral and the animals.
Look for sunscreen products that don’t include these ingredients, you’ll still get to enjoy the ocean and the local animals will appreciate it!
Avoid dining at worldwide restaurant chains that import their food and add to carbon emissions via food transportation. Instead, head to a local eatery that uses fresh regional products. Local markets can also be fun to explore and shopping local supports small businesses! You’ll get to experience more varieties of food while also helping the Earth stay beautiful.
Take Alternative Transports
Skip the rental car! Instead, take advantage of alternative transportation whenever possible. You will ensure that you don’t individually add to carbon emissions and your trip will still be fully comfortable, since many countries have multiple forms of transportation available such as train, buses and bicycles available.
Pack a Reusable Water Bottle
One of the most annoying things to constantly spend money on while traveling is bottles of water. When so many destinations have safe drinking water, why waste money and plastic bottles? Make sure to bring a reusable water bottle with you wherever you go. Not only will it help you avoid making waste, but it will keep you hydrated and save you some money.
Conserve Energy & Water
When you leave your airbnb for the day, turn off your heating or air conditioning and all of the lights. Save the energy for when you are ready to relax in your room after a day well-spent discovering.
Lack of access to clean drinking water is a global crisis yet something as simple as taking shorter showers and turning off the faucet while brushing your teeth can be a great help!
