What is green travelling?
Green travelling is a sustainable travelling practice that includes purchasing and making use of recyclable products in order to decrease environmental negative impacts. This helps in limiting the disposal of products and items, especially items made from plastic. The sustainable travelling practice helps with reducing carbon emissions. We all have to minimize our carbon emissions when travelling as it is a good mindful practice.
Why is green travelling important?
Green travelling increases environmental awareness for travellers when travelling. It promotes sustainable mindfulness while travelling.
Here are four simple tips we all can practise to be eco mindful travellers:
1. Purchase and support locally made products
By purchasing locally made products you are helping in lowering carbon emissions, as products that have been shipped and flown have a higher carbon footprint.
2. Make use of your own reusable shopping/grocery bag
Avoid buying plastic bags at all costs as plastic bags are not eco-friendly
3. Avoid littering
Do not litter, please. Throw away your trash in the bin. It is vital to be aware that some environments are tenuous. Disposing or littering toxic items can destroy the environment or harm a specific ecosystem.
4. Use a reusable water bottle.
Reusable water bottles are great because they are non-disposable so you can use them over and over again when travelling or at home. By using a reusable water bottle, you are helping with the limitation of plastic disposing usage, which usually ends up in landfills or oceans.
