Going Green
On the Go!

APRIL 13, 2019

Travel contributes to one of the largest sources of waste & greenhouse gas emissions. However if you don’t travel, you miss out on exploring our beautiful planet & all the different cultures and landscapes it is home to.

As a responsible traveller there are many things you can do. Also known as green travel or eco-tourism, eco-friendly travel means you are making a conscious effort to make less of a negative impact on nature. There are many ways to travel green, and some of them require more extreme measures (like avoiding air travel). While this isn’t possible for many trips, here are a few small and easy ways you can be more sustainable.

1) Go digital. Download your e-ticket and avoid wastage of precious paper.

2) Pack light. Every kilo counts while flying. The more the plane weighs, the lesser its fuel efficiency. Always pack only what you need!

3) Instead of buying a new book to read, borrow a book from your friend or a library, or download one on your Kindle.

4) Carry your own empty reusable water bottle. Post security check at the airport, you can always fill your bottle at the water refill stations and help by reducing plastic pollution.

5) Keep a reusable straw, cutlery and shopping bag handy always. You never know when you might want to use these while exploring a new place.

6) Shop local. Whether it’s food, clothes or souvenirs, the carbon footprint will be much lower and will also support small businesses.

7) Share the load. Taking public transport is not only better for the environment, but will also enhance your travel experience as it gives you the opportunity to interact with locals.

8) Carry your own personal care products and say no to hotel free bees which almost always come in plastic containers. If however you forget to bring yours along, make sure you take back the leftover products, as hotels will discard it. That’s just a waste of precious resources.

Remember every little step counts towards a better planet. Don’t get overwhelmed and start small. Your actions will soon turn into habits :)
