Greener holidays

How much do you know about the tourist hotspots right on your doorstep? With over 11,000 miles of stunning coastline in Great Britain and over 4 million acres of green belt land in England alone, there are many beautiful reasons to holiday here.

If you’re wondering how to make your holiday a little greener though, using the Green Tourism website can help get you started. Their website lists UK locations that have the nationally-recognised sustainability award of the Green Tourism badge.

Taking care of the environment while on holiday can be hard to do but Green Tourism has given these top tips:

  1. Take a minute to check the local recycling information at your destination as different areas can include different items.
  2. Buy local produce where you can at farmers markets, shops and restaurants that are selling local crafts, meat, fish, fruit, cheeses, and preserves.
  3. Use local transport to get around.
