How To Choose A Sustainable Holiday and Still Get Some Sunshine
Winter doesn’t seem all that bad before January 1st. After that it becomes a lot of cold, wet weather and a desire for sunshine. However we all know that travel, especially byplane, is not necessarily environmentally conscious. Since we are big supporters ofeco-conscience we have constructed a list of tips to make your holiday more green and environmentally friendly.
First and foremost, we strongly advise using The Global Sustainable Council’swebsite to pick a sustainable holiday location. They have very strict and set criteria to help you determine whether a destination or accommodation can be considered sustainable.This list is filled with certified sustainable hotels that will help you keep your holiday as green as possible.
Besides picking a sustainable location and finding accommodation that is considered green, you can try out some of these other steps to keep your trip to the sun green and eco-friendly.
That brings us to managing a sustainable holiday with children. This can be a challenge. For example, one amazing way to keep things green is by eating locally. Rather than picking big global franchises, supporting the smaller restaurants in the region you are visiting can be very environmentally friendly. However, children can be picky about this, which is why, for the sake ofgreen parenting as well, it is best to teach them young and have them develop a sense of adventure with foods and taste.
Lastly, remember to pack light. Yes - very hard with kids and babies but the less you bring the smaller the carbon footprint. Perhaps looking foraccommodation that offers baby essentials can help you in achieving this.
With that being said, we hope you and your family get to enjoy the sun for a little while and escape the cold and rain as much as you need. Safe travels!
