Tips For Taking Vacations That Are More Green
If you have been paying attention over the last several years, you certainly realize that it is no secret that the environment is currently at a crossroads - and if we as a society do not step up and start doing some things differently, we could end up seeing terrible consequences down the road. Keeping this in mind, it will be good for you to make sure you are doing your part to keep the planet it great shape - and one great way to do this is by making sure any vacation you take is a "green" vacation! If you live near the ocean, one great way to take a green vacation is by simply going sailing for a week; sailing is a tremendously fun and adventurous vacation - and when you sail, you will be operating almost exclusively on wind power, which will significantly lessen your carbon footprint for the week. Of course, if you are looking for something that is somewhat less elaborate and expensive (and a lot less difficult!), you should consider the idea of going camping for your vacation; with a camping trip, you will have an opportunity to spend lots of time bonding with the friends or family members taking part in the vacation, will be able to enjoy the beauty and majesty of nature, and will be able to protect nature in the process! And finally, realize that just about anywhere you go these days, you will be able to find lodging at places with a "green" focus - and when you stay in this "green lodging," you will be able to take a green vacation, and will be contributing to the solution instead of contributing to the problem. There are certainly lots of things you will be able to do in your life to start making a difference in the state of the planet - but focusing on green vacations is a great place to start. And when you do your small part to help, you will know you are doing what you can to take things in the right direction!
