Not only is this good for the environment and sustainable but it’s also way cheaper than travelling by car or plane. During the journey, you can also admire all of the beautiful surroundings and you can even meet other travelers like yourself. Taking a car lets out a lot of harmful gasses that are slowly destroying the ozone layer in the atmosphere.

Avoid long warm showers

Even though showering can be one of the most relaxing things to do after being outside all day, it is really not sustainable. Try to take shorter showers with mild water and when you brush your teeth remember to close the tap when you’re not using it. It is also important to reuse your towels and to avoid washing them after using them 1 or 2 times.

Support local vendors

The local vendors always have eco-friendly food and drinks. They don’t import their products but make them where they live. By purchasing local products you support people that generate fewer carbon emissions. It is important to mention that during these hard times a lot of vendors are really struggling to keep their business alive so they would really appreciate all the help possible.
