TIP: Travel Green


Now that you've booked your Green Hotel, it's time to think about how you'll be traveling green on your trip. Besides a green hotel, green travel has become very popular for vacation such as going to sustainable countries, traveling within those countries using public transportation, and buying only eco-friendly souvenirs and products. Thinking about your impact on the environment when you travel is extremely important not only for you but for the residents of the area. Being socially responsible and minimizing your impact on the environment will help maintain that destination for future tourism. Consciously making those eco-friendly choices is certainly a great way to save money by making those low-impact choices.

There are several ways you can travel green during your next trip. Packing light is one way to start traveling green. Consider purchasing luggage from companies that are socially responsible and donate part of their proceeds to an environmental organization. Storing your liquids in clear biodegradable bottles and using products that are natural or organic is also a great way to be more environmentally friendly. Minimizing your impact on the environment especially during your travels should be kept in mind. Make sure that your recycled products are indeed placed in recycle bins and not in the trash during your travels. This includes water bottles, especially during your foreign travels.

During your trip, dining at organic or farmed restaurants supports those businesses that are dedicated to making the environment better. Fair-trade souvenirs are also better alternatives to traditional ones. While sightseeing or traveling within your destination, consider walking, bicycling, or taking public transportation bus or train. If you must drive, rent hybrid vehicles for minimal environmental impact. Green hotels give incentives and discounts for guests who drive hybrid cars. So, the next time you travel, consider your impact on the environment. If you're traveling to foreign countries, it's your moment to truly show your social responsibility and that you care about the world by caring about the people in that particular destination.

I was just in El Nido, Palawan, Philippines. The entire island is pro-GREEN. They are very much concerned about protecting their environment. In fact, they are one of the resorts I've been into that do not allow motor sports to avoid fuel mixture into the water. Its resorts give handbags to everyone so that they can pick up wastes seen anywhere. Additionally, they go under water with the use of scuba to pick up waste under the sea. Moreover, El Nido use recyclable materials and they recycle water for toilet use. They also use solar system for cleaner energy. I was very impressed with El Nido. They are one of the most diverse ecosystem in the world.

Stay tuned next week for more green tips.
