4 things you need to take on your trip to make it eco-friendly
This one is extremely important. Whenever we go out, be it for a trek or a long drive, we tend to get thirsty. That is when we start looking for water and our first instinct is to buy a plastic bottle of water from a vendor. Plastic is not at all eco friendly and doesn’t decompose. Plastic is one of the major pollutants on Earth. The best solution to this problem is carrying reusable water bottles with yourself. Bamboo bottles are the best alternative and they also keep the water chilled.
Eco-friendly lunch boxes and cutlery
Imagine going for a picnic on a day that has great weather. You pack some food and beverages up, carry a good book and step out of your house. Make sure that the sandwiches that are packed in your bag are in a reusable lunch box and not a plastic bag that you will throw. Also, make sure that you carry non-plastic cutlery to make your picnic eco-friendly.
Metal or Bamboo straws
Whenever we go out for a great meal during our holiday, those cocktails generally come with a plastic straw. Or the moment you get out for your coffee fix, your paper cup generally is accompanied with a plastic straw. The cool thing to do now is to always carry your personal metal or bamboo straw with you. This saves the environment a lot.
Staying in hotels, the toiletries that are provided are generally made out of plastic. From the comb to the Q-tips everything is plastic. It is better to carry your own toiletry bag with you and use your own stuff
Be a responsible citizen and enjoy your eco-friendly getaway.
