5 Tips to More Sustainable Travel
Eco-friendly travel doesn’t mean sacrifice if you follow these five simple steps.
1. Carry a Refillable Insulated Flask
Use it for water after you pass through security, and you can also fill it with coffee or tea while on your trip.
2. Bring Your Own Snacks in Containers
Binge on your favorite snacks without having to take plastic from the plane and reuse your containers to bring home more delicious local delights.
3. Pack a Pair of Chopsticks or Travel Cutlery kit
Reduce your reliance on single-use disposable cutlery during your travel.
4. Take Your Own Travel Toiletries
Make sure you have your necessities packed so you can avoid single-use plastic bottled toiletries.
5. Carbon Offsetting
Air travel has a huge carbon impact. We recommend carbon offsetting, in which the impact of your travel is balanced out by a small investment you make in projects that help combat global warming. For example, a flight from JFK to LAX burns about a third of a metric ton of carbon per passenger, and costs less than $10 to offset. We like verified projects like Carbon Fund.
