For the earth conscious individual or family, taking a holiday may seem like an expensive and unnecessary waste of natural resources. However, there are options available to you and yours when you wish to preserve our planet and recreate at the same time.
1. Limit carbon footprint through use of public transportation
Bus systems, trains, subways and ferries all can be taken to and through scenic areas, around an ancient city, and as part of tourist groups. They are also a great way to find out more about the local area, as well as the natural resources thereof.
2. For extra altruism points: go on a volunteer holiday
Volunteer holidays are mostly designed for couples, but individuals and families can also participate. Helping out a local area, serving the residents, participating in construction projects, and installing community necessities are all things which green-hearted holidayers can do. In fact, many honeymooners do this in order to start their life together in service and submission, and often grow closer through shared work and efforts to improve the lives of others.
3. Stay in green luxury
Many hotels and holiday resorts are designed to accommodate eco friendly living. They use all sustainable materials in their construction, format and design, including materials for sleeping and recreating. In addition to this, environmentally friendly hotels may also prohibit motorized vehicles or petrol consuming products on site, in order to maintain their goal.
4. There is nothing quite like camping in the great outdoors
Nothing will inspire you more than spending a holiday outdoors, and nothing will give you more respect for natural habitats. Be sure to follow park rules when camping in a national park, and be sure to follow all guidelines regarding wild animals. Pack accordingly. Always make sure to bring biodegradable waste items on your camping trip and clean up your site after eating, or it will attract wildlife which may wish to feast on you next!
