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