How to Be Eco-Friendly While Traveling
With the tourism industry booming, it’s important we all do our part in keeping our favorite destinations as beautiful as ever.
While many resorts around the globe have become eco-friendly, We would like to give you a few ideas on ways you can all help to preserve our beautiful planet.
That bottle of water waiting for you when you check into your room? DRINK IT. It’s pretty easy to gulp down half and then leave it on the nightstand for housekeeping to take. If this is something you do multiple times a day, combine your water bottles into one throughout the day.
While we may enjoy walking into a freshly cleaned room, cutting down on housekeeping visits helps more than you may realize. The one small thing that can greatly help—hang your towels. Reuse them. With hundreds of resorts globally, just imagine how much water and energy is used from washing alone.
Fun fact—biodegradable sunscreen is actually a thing. If you’re visiting a Caribbean destination, you know sunscreen is an absolute must. This specific sunscreen has removed the chemicals and oils that are bad for the marine life, which gives our coral reefs and animals the ability to continue to thrive.
While it may sound silly, bring your own cup. If you’re staying 4 days and nights at a resort, one plastic cup for each meal, that’s twelve cups gone to waste—and that’s not counting the numerous cocktail glasses while lounging by the pool.
So many resorts have become eco-friendly over the last few years. With so many options to choose from, you’re bound to find one that fits your every need.
