Planning a vacation or fun family trip this year? Choosing to be eco-friendly doesn’t have to stop when you head out for an adventure. These simple tips will ensure that your next trip can be easily eco-friendly while still being relaxing and rejuvenating. Read on to learn more Earth-conscious ideas for vacationing with the planet in mind!
Check Out Environmentally Friendly Travel
Are you able to drive or travel by train or bus instead of plane? Check out different modes of transportation in your area to see if you can arrive to your destination with as small as a carbon footprint as possible. Trains are the most Earth-conscious option, with buses coming in closely behind. If you do have to fly, try to book a nonstop flight if at all possible. When you do arrive, explore some travel options that don’t require gasoline, such as bicycles, electric scooters, walking and/or hiking trails, or public transportation if you plan to do some sightseeing and take in your new surroundings.
Avoid Water Bottles and Plastic Straws
Did you know that a million (yes, a million!) water bottles are bought around the world every single minute? Choose a reusable water bottle to take with you everywhere instead of purchasing bottled water or drinks. Try purchasing one that can hold both hot and cold beverages in case you want to enjoy a hot cup of coffee or tea before drinking water. Also, say no to straws in drinks or purchase a set of reusable straws to keep in your bag. Little changes can make a big difference!
Choose Reef-Friendly Sunscreen
If you’re heading to the beach or lake, remember to take your reef friendly sunscreen with you to stay protected from sunburn. Our travel reef friendly carabiner clip is perfect for a day trip and can be easily clipped to a belt loop, purse, or backpack. If you prefer a spray sunscreen, add the reef friendly continuous spray to your suitcase and toss it in your bag for convenient sun protection on the go. Because our non-nano and oxybenzone-free formulas are reef friendly, you can rest assured that your fun in the sun won’t hurt the planet.
Try Green Activities
The Earth-friendly options are endless. You can hike, bike, snorkel, swim, boat, surf, paddleboard, kayak, canoe, walk, play sports, run, jog, tour landmarks and museums, or just sit under a tree and hang out. Look into natural areas around your destination to see if there are national parks or refuges that offer activities. If relaxing is your plan of action, try reading a book or spending quality time with family members or friends instead of watching TV or surfing the internet. Not only will these activities make your vacation more eco-friendly, but you’ll enjoy the beautiful world around you so much more.
