How to Travel More Sustainably

How to Have an Environmentally Friendly Holiday

When you're thinking about booking a vacation for you and your family, it can often feel like you need to put all attempts at a sustainable, or eco-friendly, lifestyle on hold. Not so! While you may not be able to duplicate your at-home habits (composting!) there are definitely ways to continue to act sustainably, repurpose and upcycle while travelling. Here are a few ways to ensure that you're able to enjoy a vacation while still choosing to protect the environment and reduce your waste.

Choose Environmentally-Friendly Accommodation
When researching possible accommodation, eco-friendly options really do exist! How to figure this out? Most importantly, research the company that you're booking with. Take a look at their Corporate Responsibility or Mission statement - it should include specifics regarding their environmental and sustainability initiatives.

An almost sure-fire option? Rather than stay in hotels, consider booking self-catered villas instead. This gives you greater control over the amount of waste that you'll be creating, with the option to cook your own food (using locally grown ingredients) rather than eat at restaurants. At James Villas, they offer a selection of luxurious self-catered 2021 holidays for you and your family that can help you to travel sustainably.
