Going green is something that takes time and dedication. Generally, people start going green by incorporating eco-friendly habits like recycling into their daily routines. It’s great to go green in a small way, but we want to suggest that you do it in a big way: by greening your vacation!
It’s easier than you may think to go green on vacation, but our best suggestion is to choose a location known for it’s green initiatives. Here are a few of our favorites:
Kaikoura, New Zealand
Kaikoura offers a number of green activities provided by the locals as part of their Green Globe 21 tourism certificate. Offerings include wilderness walks, tree planting days, and the chance to see endangered dolphins up close and personal.
Glacier Bay, Alaska
Part of a chain of glaciers spanning the United States and Canada, Glacier Bay is a massive 24 million acres, and is the largest protected area in the world. Glacier Bay is a great way to see the environment in a very atypical, almost pre-historical setting.
Going green on your vacation is a great way to make a real impact on the environment, especially since many of these trips allow travelers to volunteer during their trip.
