Some Ways to Minimise your Impact on the Environment When Travelling
Going on holiday or a travel adventure can be damaging for the environment. The air travel, the car fumes, the activities you choose to do… they can all have consequences for animals and the environment. If you are going to travel in the most environmentally-friendly way possible, here are some thoughts to consider:
- Travel on public transport. Buses and trains and much better for the environment than lots of cars. This helps to reduce harmful emissions.
- Stay in eco lodges or hotels. Research them first and see how good their green credentials really are. Check for things like how they collect their water and the activities they offer.
- Walk as much as you can. Why not walk rather than taking transport? You will see more of the country you are visiting.
- Research activities first. Make sure the company you are using is reputable and isn’t going to be harming the environment.
