OFF-GRID BUT ON TRACK. HOW TO STAY ECO-FRIENDLY ON VACATION
Are you getting ready to pack your bags and take some well-deserved time off? We’ve got you covered! Here are some of our top tips on how you can take a break without taking away from mama earth.
SWITCH OFF COMPLETELY
We know the pre-holiday excitement can get so real! However, before you leave your house, be sure to check that all the electricals are switched off. This will ensure that you’re not using any unnecessary energy, and will also lower that utility bill.
TRAVEL FAR, THINK LOCAL
If you’re travelling soon, be sure to research local experiences, restaurants and homestays in the area you’re travelling to. Investing in local shopping and services is a great way to give back to the community that you’re travelling to and ensures that the money from tourism goes right back into the local economy. This also allows you to immerse yourself in new and exciting delicacies and cultural experiences that you wouldn’t normally find back home.
BE MINDFUL OF PLASTIC
When travelling, it’s not always easy to keep your plastic use to a minimum. Before embarking on your journey, be sure to pack your reusable essentials. That reusable water bottle? Yes, please! Not only will it reduce your plastic use, but it’s sure to save you a few dollars when travelling. The same goes for reusable shopping bags, which also doubles as the perfect excuse to go check out the local markets and fill them up with some goodies.
LEAVE NO TRACE
This might seem like a no-brainer, but we’ll just throw it out there anyway. When travelling, be sure that you stay conscious about what you’re leaving behind. It goes without saying, but try your best to practice the same self-discipline and eco-friendly practices that you do when you’re at home.
