Hello eco-conscious explorers and sustainable globe-trotters! Are you planning a staycation in the beautiful UK? If so, we have some fantastic eco-friendly travel tips to ensure your journey is as green as the rolling hills. Here’s what you need to know.
Get into the spirit of minimalism as you plan your staycation. Packing light will reduce the amount of fuel used by your vehicle and leave more space for you to bring back some mementos. And while you’re at it, pack some of our eco-friendly laundry sheets, they take up minimal space and you’ll be thankful when the kids come back covered in mud after a trip to the park.
Choose Public Transportation
Whether you’re in the lively cities or the quiet countryside, make use of public transport for an eco-hero move. Take the trains, buses, or trams – all of these help in reducing carbon emissions and saving you the headache of finding parking.
Look for Eco-Friendly Accommodations
Seek out establishments that proudly flaunt their green badge. There are plenty of hotels, B&Bs & holiday homes in the UK that practice sustainability through eco-friendly amenities and waste reduction initiatives.
*Top tip: Before heading out the door to your eco-oasis, make sure you’ve packed your trusty sustainable toilet roll. You see, some holiday homes are all about that minimalistic charm and might leave you with just a few rolls to spare. But fear not, because your eco-friendly backup is right there, ready to step in and save the day (and your bathroom experience) with its soft, sustainable embrace.
One of the joys of travelling is the chance to sample the local cuisines. Make the most of it by going for eateries that offer local, organic ingredients. This way, you can enjoy some delicious meals while also contributing to the community and cutting your carbon footprint.
The UK has plenty of natural sights to offer. Make the most of your stay by doing some hiking, bike riding, or having a picnic in one of its gorgeous national parks or breathtaking coastlines. Don’t forget to take our sustainable toilet paper for those ‘in-the-wild’ bathroom breaks!
Refuse Single-Use Plastics
Keep your reusable water bottle and coffee cup close. With the abundance of charming cafes and beautiful parks, you’ll be able to sip and stroll without creating any additional plastic waste.
