Traveling #minimumwaste

Aktualizováno: 17. 7. 2019

Summer is here and so is traveling. How to behave planet friendly and not affect the local ecosystems during your travels? We have put together a couple of tips for you!

Destination choice.

Choose destinations that are not overwhelmed by tourists. In case you choose such a destination, try to go off the beaten path and get to know the less known places and things.


To get into the destination, try to reduce flying and, if possible, use a train instead. Avoid cruise ships! Once in the destination, use an eco-friendly mean of transportation – preferably walk, use a bike or the public transport, do not rent cars and avoid taxis.

No take-away food.

Don’t buy take-away food, eat in local restaurants instead.

Water bottle.

Bring a water bottle and refill it, don’t buy bottled water.

Shopping bag.

Bring you own bag, don’t take plastic bags in the supermarkets.

Packaging-free cosmetics

A solid shampoo/soap bar are a must for all waste reducers. Simply put it in a travel case, it won't take more space than a regular shower gel bottle. Moreover, there's nothing to leak!

Support locals.

Support local communities-eat in local restaurants, sleeps in local hotels (not international chains) and buy locally made souvenirs.

Behave as if you were at home.

Behave as you would behave at home – do not let water running just because you don’t pay for it, turn off the lighting, recycle and simply do everything as if you do it normally back home!
