Maintaining a green lifestyle when you’re on the road or even just on vacation is difficult, even if you do it in your normal day-to-day life. However, continuing to be environmentally conscious while traveling is essential because you still need to be conscious of the environment. More than that, you don’t want to contribute waste to the places you’re visiting! If you don’t know where to start, here are some good ideas.
Before you leave your home, make sure everything is unplugged, including televisions, toaster ovens, and microwaves! These all still suck out energy and will cost you more in the end.
Bring a Reusable Water Bottle
Bringing a reusable water bottle while traveling is essential for so many reasons. One, buying a water bottle every day is expensive and is also very costly. Two, you should not reuse regular plastic water bottles because they can leak BPA into the water. And three, you’re probably going to be walking a lot, and keeping hydrated is super important.
Eating locally means that the food is getting sourced close to the kitchen at the restaurant. That will keep local farmers supported, and will cut out unnecessary traveling in trucks.
