Even with the best of intentions, it's easy to generate waste and pollution while traveling. By following a few simple guidelines, you can reduce your impact on the environment and save money at the same time. Here are a few tips for traveling green.

Get There Greener

Be a Green Guest

Many hotels and resorts have adopted conservation practices. Book your lodging at places clearly interested in protecting the environment and make sure you let them know that is why you've chosen their establishment.

Greener Ways to Eat

Set Eco-Friendly Examples

Eco-tourism is a philosophy. Use reusable bags, totes, storage containers, napkins and towels. Try to rent equipment when you can, and take only as many brochures and maps as you really need. Be an example for others by picking up litter and showing respect for the environment, especially at places with lots of tourists. Protect the environment by leaving nature's "souvenirs" where you find them. Take pictures and leave only your footprints.

Reward Green Heroes

Businesses respond to their customers. Let them know you appreciate their environmental efforts by passing along compliments to owners, managers and staff. Likewise, when you have a suggestion on how a business might improve their environmental performance, let them know and tell them you appreciate businesses that show an interest in protecting the environment.
