Environmental Friendly Travelling

Almost all the persons living on earth love to travel. But 90% of them don't how much contaminations are happening due to their travelling. These peoples are doing lots of pollution without knowing. So aim of this post is open the eyes of those peoples who are not aware about this matter.

What you have to do before leave the Home

  • Turn off and unplug all the electrical appliances like TV, Washing machine, Kitchen equipment & etc before you leave the home.
  • Don't forget to turn off the Air Condition machine.
  • Inform to news paper delivery agent to stop sending news paper while you're in Travelling.
  • Try to find details regarding available Green Hotels in your destination area.
  • Don't buy new plastic battle and packages. Always use available recourses in your home.
  • I f you want buy something always choose reusable and recyclable things.

How to select a Suitable Transportation

In this case we should be very keen because without knowing we're doing lots of contamination while travelling.

  • If it's possible always try to use public transportations like Buses and trains.
  • If you need to use your own vehicles don't use multiple vehicles. Bring maximum passengers in your car.
  • It's a good idea to use a hybrid car if you can.
  • Unless it's really necessary don't use flying as your travelling methods. If it's really required book a direct flight. Because several landing and taking off processes are making lots of carbon emission than regular flying.
  • Don't do long flying for short vacation. Reason is flying is a travelling method which is making large amount of carbon emission. If you are not going to stay for a sufficient time against the distance you are travelling carbon emission rate per a person will be increase. Therefore use long flying only if you can spend a long vacation. (ex- you can select the School vacation period)
  • After reach to your destination always try to walk or biking instead of using a cab service or your vehicle.

  • Always you should try to find a Green Hotel for your accommodation. Then carefully read and follow the instruction given by the hotel in terms of Green Concept.
  • Important thing is select the Bed and Breakfast basis when you are booking the hotel. Since operations and wasting are usually lesser for B&B method. In addition to that it'll prevent the wasting of your own money also.

  • If you cannot find a Green Hotel in your destination try to follow your own green concept when you're stay in the hotel. I'll give you guidance in below.
    • When you leave the room turn of lights, TV, Air Conditioning and all other electrical equipments.
    • Usually in hotels towels are changing for everyday. So if you feel that as it's not required inform them not to change.
    • Close the Tap while you're brushing your teeth.
    • Most of Toiletries in hotels will change after you leave the hotel. So this kind of toiletries you can bring home and use in home.
  • When you leave the hotel don't forget give your comments to improve their Green concept.

Get a local guide because they are the peoples who know about the area perfectly. In other hand you will help to local economy as well.

Always try to think in green manner. For an example if your members required drinking water. Then buy a large reusable water battle instead of buying individual battle for everyone.

Don't throw your waste in everywhere. Put those in proper places which are introduced for that purpose.
