Thinking of eco-friendly holidays this year?
Eco-friendly holidays are getting more and more popular as the concern for the environment rises.
There are quite a lot of things to pay attention to and many sustainable ways to travel.
For example, transport and accommodation are to be chosen carefully if you want to respect the environment.
The first step to make would be reducing flights.
However, you can pay a service to offset the carbon from your flights and, once you reach your destination, choose a sustainable location and avoid polluting transport.
But if you have alternatives to flights…go for them!
