Sustainable Tips to Travel 100% Green : A New Way to Travel

Sustainable tourism means traveling green

This is a type of tourism promoted by operators who pay attention to the relationship between tourism and nature. Adopt these sustainable and operational strategies in order to ensure that this relationship will be in harmony and respect.

Here is a practical guide for those who are planning their holidays:

The current world that is in a financial crisis and affects all sectors of our lives, has spared the international tourism field.

 According to the United Nations World Tourism Organisation, the International tourism has increased with 48% in 2014 than it did back in 2013. The international tourist arrivals reached an amount of one billion people.

A great result for the economy but a real problem for the environment and our planet.

However, it is possible to improve the situation: people need to consider it as an important opportunity to change habits and travel in a more sustainable way.

 

 


What is sustainable tourism

Ecotourism is defined by the International Ecotourism Society as “responsible travel to natural areas that conserves the environment and sustains the wellness of the local people”. To sum up we can quote what sustainable lifestyle expert Alastair Fuad-Luke says in his book: “ecotourists are travelers who love to have fun, not to destroy the environment.”

 

 


Choosing YOUR destination

Where can we be eco-friendlier? We could plan a responsible travel in one of the more environment respectful countries, according to the Environmental Performance Index (EPI).

In 2014 the top ten countries were: Switzerland, Luxembourg, Australia, Singapore, Czech Republic, Germany, Spain, Austria, Sweden and Norway.

For those who love the metropolitan tourism; the eco-friendliest city in the world is Frankfurt, followed by London, Copenhagen, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Berlin, Seoul, Hong Kong, Madrid and Singapore.

Finally, eco-tourists should go to the UNESCO’s world heritage sites in order to help preserving them, particularly the ones which are in danger.

 

 


Sustainable tourism in the world

Making ecotourism in large parks and green areas is relatively easy. But you can even organize sustainable holidays in cities and the most popular destinations of the world. We give you some examples:

Cuba

 

It is not only a place where you can see the history of a revolution. You can also see how they produce local bio-products, such as honey.

Cuba has not been able to afford pesticides and has a natural environment that encourages bees. The memory of these precious insects have never been occurred. The bees are in good health which makes the production of honey the country’s key export.

 

 

New York

 

The Big Apple is no shortage of travelers … but can you do sustainable tourism in New York? The offer of the city is so large, that the answer can only be yes. According to some, it is also possible to calibrate a sustainable route specifically for the little ones.

Back in July 2015, New York reduced the impact of “street waste” and banned their containers for food and beverages that are packed in polystyrene packages. They only admitting those that are packed in bio-plastic.


Means of transport

Choosing the right transport is fundamental. The greenest way is travelling by train. However, there are some airline companies that increase their ticket price in order to compensate the CO2 emissions. Once you arrive at your destination you can travel by public transports, by bike or…just go walking!

 

 


Hotels

More and more hotels all over the world are trying to reduce their impact and certify their commitment towards the environment.

The most popular certifications at an international level are : Ecolabel, Green Key, Green Globe and the sustainable tourism eco-certification program.

 

 


TIPS

The International Union for Conservation of Nature suggests how to travel in a green way. We will tell you our best tips:

  • Visit areas with high natural and cultural values;
  • Bring light luggage;
  • Plan the route;
  • Adapt with local cultures;
