If you are interested on being a more sustainable traveler this information is for you!
In recent years, sustainable travel has become a more prevalent topic than ever before. This is due to the fact that travelers are becoming more aware of the environmental and social impacts of their actions and are looking for ways to make more mindful choices. Traveling sustainably is all about making conscious decisions that minimize the negative effects of travel while maximizing the positive effects. This can include things like reducing your carbon footprint, supporting local businesses, and reducing your waste.
So, what can you do to be a sustainable traveler?
The first and most important step is to do your research. Finding out about your destination, the sustainability standards and customs of the area, and the local culture can help you make informed decisions about your trip and make sure you’re taking the right steps to travel sustainably.
The next step is to think about your mode of transport. Where possible, look to opt for a greener option, like public transportation or cycling. Not only will you be helping the environment, but you’ll also get to experience the local culture more authentically and save money too!
Try to avoid activities that involve animals. Whilst animal entertainment may seem like a fun day out, it often involves animal cruelty and exploitation. Instead, look to activities that involve safaris, sustainable welfare and animal feeding.
Finally, remember to respect your environment. Make sure to leave your destination the same way you found it - or even better! Reduce your waste, travel plastic-free, and pick up litter if you see it.
The good news is that there are endless ways to travel sustainably. One of the best ways to do this is by booking through EHR (soon to be Ownia Collection). A company committed to sustainability, we are dedicated to ensuring that their member hotels are meeting the highest standards of sustainability. We have 12 impact pillars that all member hotels are required to adhere to, such as reducing energy and water consumption, using local produce, and reducing waste.
When you book through EHR (soon to be Ownia Collection), you can be sure that you are making a positive impact on the environment and the community. Our hotels are committed to supporting the local business, so not only are you having a lower environmental impact, but you are also helping to support the local community. This helps to ensure fresh ingredients in your meals, knowledge of the local culture and that the economy can continue to thrive.
Another great way to travel sustainably is by minimizing your waste. Many of our member hotels are committed to reducing their waste and increasing recycling efforts. This helps to keep the environment clean and reduces the amount of waste that goes into landfills. Additionally, some of the hotels offer reusable items, such as reusable water bottles and shopping bags, which can help to reduce the amount of single-use plastics.
Finally, it’s important to remember that sustainable travel isn’t just about reducing your carbon footprint or minimizing waste. It’s also about choosing wisely. If you want to be sure that the planet is being cared for while you travel, do not hesitate to contact us!
