It’s that time of year to pack up the crew, have fun with the family and make some memories. It’s easy to be eco-friendly on your next escape. Here are six tips for making your next vacation a green one:
1.) When leaving your hotel room, turn off all lights & unplug electrical devices.
2.) Turn off air conditioning when leaving or adjust the thermostat.
3.) Take a walk, ride a bike or use public transportation when you get to your destination (it's a great way to see your vacation spot).
4.) Recycle! seek out an area that recycles your paper & plastic. If your hotel does not have recycling bins, speak to a manager and suggest that they start offering that must-have service for their guests.
5.) Use your towels & sheets for a couple of days. Hotels are now making it easy to cut down on water waste by encouraging guests to reuse.
6.) Search out & support a green hotel or green lodging.
