Why are you interested in living a green life? Everyone has a reason for going green, for listening to the pulse of the earth, or for living clean. For some, it’s personal health. Some of us go green because of our children’s future, while some of us understand the benefits of cutting toxins out of personal products whenever we can. Through our journey of environmental awareness, it’s important to keep the image of what we’re saving in front of us. One way to do that is to make travel plans that incorporate nature.
Get Cozy with Mammals and Trees
When on vacation, go to a zoo and spend a day getting to know the wildlife there and learn facts about the animals you’re seeing. Concerned about the earth? Plant a tree and give back to the environment. (This can also be a great project to do with kids.)
One way to remember why we’re going green is to go to the beach when on vacation. Focus on the beauty of the ocean and remember that may be a reason for your decision to go green. Think of the marine life you and your family are helping to keep safe. When going on beach getaways, stay away from plastic and instead use reusable cutlery or washable cups or try getting recycled plastic for beach picnics. Want to play with the kids, have beach fun, and still keep green living in mind? Try joining a beach cleanup on vacation or at home.
By incorporating environmental fun into our vacations, we’ll be better able to stay in touch with the world we’re saving.
