4 Ways to Make Your Next Holiday More Sustainable

90% of travelers now want sustainable options. Tourism providers can meet this demand by offering more sustainable options and making them more appealing to travelers.

Here are four ways to make your next holiday more sustainable:

1. Spend locally

When you spend money at local businesses, more of your money stays in the community. This helps to support local jobs and businesses, and it also helps to protect the environment. Local businesses are more likely to be environmentally friendly, as they are invested in the long-term health of their community.

2. Tread lightly

Be mindful of the environmental impact of your travel. This means reducing your water usage, energy consumption, and waste production. It also means being respectful of the natural environment and the local culture.

3. Place matters

Choose destinations that are committed to sustainability. There are many travel destinations that are working to reduce their environmental impact. Look for destinations that have sustainable policies in place, such as recycling programs, renewable energy initiatives, and water conservation measures.

4. Stay curious

Get out and explore your destination. Don't just stay in your hotel or resort. Venture out and experience the local culture. This is a great way to learn about the environmental challenges facing your destination and how you can help to make a difference.
