There are plenty of ways to enjoy your holidays, while still being environmentally conscious, because climate change is a reality we all need to pay attention to. It has been named as one of the foremost threats of the 21st century.

Airplanes are well known heavy emitters of greenhouse gases, thus contribute significantly to climate change. It has therefore become profoundly important to adopt a more eco-friendly approach on any trip we may embark on.

Here are some tips to keep in mind;

Eco lodges, Hotels and AirBnB

Apps like Eco-BnB provide an array of eco-friendly lodges and hotels. You could select hotels powered by hydro or Solar, or better-still immerse yourself in the beauty of an organic tree or farmhouse.

Avoid single-use Plastics and drinking straws


Plastics pollute the environment and also put our sea life at risk. According to research, about 49% of garbage at the seas comprise of plastics. Statistics reveal that an organic cotton bag will be reused 20,000 times to have the same effect on the environment as a single-use plastic bag. Therefore, as an eco-friendly alternative, purchase reusable shopping bags, water bottles or cotton tote bags and this could reduce harm on the environment.

Conserve Water


By conserving water we reduce the consumption of chemicals used to treat the water and pump water.  Also, treat and reuse water for multiple purposes. By doing this you are conserving water for an eco-friendly impact on the planet.
