If you could avoid harming the planet on vacation, would you choose to do so? The answer in most cases is, Yes!
Ask yourself this, if you had the choice to stay in a property that offers all the comforts and service of a luxury villa BUT the homeowner has gone that extra mile to make it eco-friendlier, would you choose to stay here? Perhaps the homeowner has chosen local and natural materials to build the home and has added solar panels to generate electricity, maybe they have cleverly designed the home in a way that has a minimal impact on the environment, would you prefer to stay here?
In most cases, the answer is Yes! Not only is it up to the homeowner to be more conscious of the environment but for the guests who stay here to be to. Eco-travel has never been more important than it is today.
How do you travel eco-friendly?
The truth is that it’s actually quite easy to take responsibility and be more environmentally conscious when you are travelling. Put simply, it’s about making small changes and doing little things that will have less of an impact on the local environment you choose to travel to. Eco-friendly travel has become more and more popular. But what exactly does eco-friendly mean and how does it relate to travel and tourism? The definition of being eco-friendly is living in a way that is both earth-friendly and is not harmful to the environment.
Studies have shown that taking vacations and a break from work is critical to people’s health and wellbeing. Scientists have even found that a proper break without any stress can lower your Teleromese readings which are the measurement of your biological age versus your chronological age. That means a vacation can make you younger! So how do we travel without ruining our environment further? It turns out that even small things can have a big impact especially if we can get as many people as possible taking steps in the right direction.
