There are many things you can do while travelling to minimise your environmental impact. Some of them you may already do at home but you can also do them while on holiday:

  • When you’ve finished with your holiday brochures, pass them onto a friend or recycle them
  • Buy local produce which reduces air miles incurred in transporting the food to a kitchen for final preparation
  • Respect the local culture and traditions where you are traveling through. Ensure your dress and behaviour is appropriate for the places you visit. If you’re unsure, ask your tour manager
  • Minimise waste by bringing your own water bottle and reusing it, and refuse or reuse plastic bags when shopping
  • Learn a few words of the local language and ensure the way you dress, eat and greet people is polite according to the local custom
  • Please don’t pick plants and flowers, leave them for others to enjoy
  • At your hotel use water sparingly, take short showers instead of baths and hang towels for drying and reuse
  • Separate paper from plastic and try to recycle as much as possible
  • Throw any litter in the bin and keep the local environment tidy
  • Switch lights off & air conditioning off if you are not in the room or don’t need them
  • Turn off your TV instead of leaving it on standby
  • Support a local environmental group and learn more about what you can do
  • Reduce your use and waste of precious resources such as water, food and energy
  • Leave as much packaging at home from goods you buy for your trip and recycle as much of this as possible

These simple actions can help reduce our impact on the planet. With your support we can make a lasting difference.
