ollow these tips to reduce the carbon footprint of your cruise trips and mitigate your impact on the planet.
CONSIDER LOW CARBON MODES OF TRANSPORTATION
To contribute to eco-travel, while exploring your favorite destinations opt for an electric car, or fuel-efficient vehicle.
BOOK LOWER EMISSION FLIGHTS
When flying, choose airlines that prioritize fuel-efficient planes, sustainable fuel, and waste reduction such as recycling.
STAY AT ECO-FRIENDLY HOTELS
Choose a hotel that is reducing its footprint through measures such as energy efficient appliances, renewable energy, automatic temperature control, local sourcing, and recycling or composting. Or opt for more basic lodgings which typically have lower emissions.
REDUCE SINGLE-USE ITEMS
Bring reusable items such as toiletries, water bottles, shopping bags, and coffee cups from home to reduce the need for disposable items. When shopping, choose high-quality travel products and practical, locally-produced souvenirs that won’t end up in the trash.
RECYCLE AND COMPOST YOUR WASTE
Utilize recycling and compost bins in airports, hotels, and while sightseeing to properly dispose of waste. Be sure to read any posted signage and sort your trash accordingly.
CHOOSE LOW-IMPACT ACTIVITIES
When deciding how to explore your destination, choose walking and cycling tours, hiking, kayaking, or non-motorized snorkeling and diving excursions. If booking a tour, look for an eco-friendly operator that uses low-emission transport and has eliminated single-use plastics.
OFFSET YOUR CARBON FOOTPRINT
All trips have a carbon footprint. Purchasing carbon offsets allows you to compensate for unavoidable emissions while supporting impactful climate projects around the world.
