Environmental conservation and sustainability initiatives have permeated every aspect of our lives, including the travel industry. Travelers are thinking about and looking for ways to maintain the same green practices and approaches they have at home. It is more important than ever for us to conserve resources and protect the environment, even when we’re in a place that isn’t our home.

In addition to preserving nature and reducing our carbon footprint, eco-friendly travel has a variety of benefits for communities. By choosing more sustainable accommodations, restaurants, and other businesses, travelers can support the local economy and the people who live there. Green travel practices can also protect cultural heritage, as travelers learn more about the history, people and traditions interwoven with the natural environment.

Pure Rooms form one part of the eco-friendly travel picture by promoting health and wellness for environmentally conscious travelers.

Anyone can start participating in the eco-friendly travel movement with a few simple steps.

● Choose sustainable accommodations. Many of Pure’s partnering hotels have taken steps to reduce waste and conserve resources, among other green initiatives. There are several reputable green hotel certifications that make it easy for travelers to find a responsible option.

● Use alternative transportation. Plan to stay in an area where it’s convenient to get around on foot, bike, or public transit. Air travel is by far the least efficient form of transportation so try to drive or travel by train as much as possible.

● Reduce plastic waste. Bring a reusable water bottle, utensils, and shopping bag with you to minimize your dependence on single-use plastics. Because you’ll be saving money on bottled water and other disposable products, this effort is good for your wallet and for the planet.

● Eat and shop local. Community businesses tend to be better for the environment because they require less energy for transportation and are more consciously aware of their relationship to the local environment. Supporting these businesses also keeps more resources in communities that have a stake in protecting the place where they live.

● Protect wildlife. It goes without saying that you should treat the local environment with respect and work to minimize disturbances. Choose outdoor activities that encourage responsible interaction with plants and animals and consider volunteering or otherwise supporting local conservation efforts.
