There are many ways you can reduce your impact on the environment whilst away.
So for those of you who wish to spent an unforgettable ‘green holiday’, we’ve put together some simple but effective ideas to help make your vacation a green one:
You can start searching accomodation features such as energy saving appliances, full recycling facilities, solar panels, and even grass and flower roofing. A holiday hotel/cottage shall aim to provide a more sustainable and environmentally friendly service, to nationally recognised standards.
Travel by train, cycle, walk and use public transport while you’re on holiday. There’s no need to hunt for parking and it’s a great way to take in your holiday surroundings. You can also explore local waterways if any with offers like river ferries, boats.
Buy local, try local produce. The country side usually offers some of the best organic food and drink with more local producers. Whether you’re looking to try something new or reacquaint yourself with a traditional dish, the beautiful range of cheeses, fruit and veg, wines, meats and fresh seafood fropm the area.
Expand your knowledge of the environment. Visit popular places if you want to explore conservation areas and attractions.
Reuse, reduce and recycle and continue everyday environmentally friendly actions like switching off lights, preserving water, choosing seasonal, locally grown food when possible and taking your own bags to the shops.
Respect the Countryside Code.
Even if you only manage a few of these things, you will still help to reduce the carbon foot print of your holiday and support local industry. Not only will you feel recharged after a relaxing holiday, you will go home feeling good in the knowledge that you have done your bit for the environment.
