Many people hear the terms “green travel” or “ecotourism” , but what is it? How about responsible travel. Taking a green approach to travel is an easy and essential way to protect the places you love to visit, not just for yourself but for the travelers who come after you.
Here are some easy green-travel tips:
- Keep your showers short, and shut off the water while you’re brushing your teeth.
- When you leave the room turn off the television, lights or any other electric devices.
- Reuse your sheets and towels instead of using new ones every day.
- Rent a Hybrid car.
- Travel with tour operators that are environmentally friendly.
