Are you trying to live a more eco-friendly life? Here are a few tips on how to travel green.
Compensate For Flying
Flying has recently become much more affordable and convenient. Some airlines travel specific paths to lower costs, and others simply add more planes to their fleet. Regardless of how convenient it is to fly, economical does not equal eco-friendly. The carbon emissions from planes still contribute to air pollution. While airlines are constantly striving to improve their performance, those who are concerned and interested in going the extra mile are able to help contribute to an environmental cause. For example, you can purchase a carbon offset, which cuts back on greenhouse gases. Two of the airlines that allow passengers to do this are United and Delta. Individuals flying with these airlines can go to their website and look up how much of a carbon footprint they are leaving behind as a result of their flight. The website translates that data into a monetary figure. Passengers are then able to either give miles or money toward a project aimed about carbon reduction.
It is important to note that not everyone is pleased with offset programs. There are complaints that the data from the carbon calculators isn’t quite right; the argument states that the charge does not factor in seating class or extra luggage. That being said, it is still a simple, straightforward way to contributing to a cause.
You can make a choice when you get there to take a greener mode of transport than you normally would. This may mean taking public transport for the remainder of your trip. It may also mean considering the car or campervan you will hire. Perhaps instead of a gas guzzler you go for a greener auto that will save on fuel and be more energy efficient, it may also have lower insurance.

Save Paper, Use E-Documents
Whenever you have the option of receiving a document as an e-file, do that instead of printing it out. There are many papers that you simply don’t need to have a hard copy of and that you might just lose anyway.
If you can get an e-document that is easily scanned at airports and other places, do that instead. It’s not only good for the environment, but it is easy for you as well!
If you are going on vacation it is best to pick up food to eat at your destination. Whether you are traveling by car or plane, only pack food for the trip. Unless you are traveling to a place without a grocery store, you are likely going to spend more and burn more gas on the way.
