BYOB – Bring your own Bottle

Being a responsible traveller can be as simple as bringing your own bottle and keeping less waste along the way. Did you know that reusing or recycling bottles can save enough energy to power a 60-watt light bulb for an entire day in 15 million households? So start opting for reusables rather than consecutively buying water bottles and plastic containers.

walk or bike

Minimize your carbon footprints by sneaking in some exercise while traveling by walking or biking. Walking or biking are some of the most environment-friendly ways to explore a destination. Bonus: These can help you see and discover other details about your destination that you might not notice when traveling by car. 

Buy Locally

Support local artisans by buying souvenirs that are locally made. This way the money you pay will go directly to local artists, small business and communities. 

TIP: Bring your own reusable bags when buying presents for you and your friends.
