The environment belongs to everyone, although it seems that some people don’t yet understand this.
But it’s always important to know we need to take care of all the spots we visit on our family vacations, whether they are on the beach, in the city, in colonial cities, in small villages or ecotourism destinations.
We need everyone’s commitment so our tourism gems remain beautiful for generations to come.
If, for example, you love to enjoy your vacation on one of the beautiful beaches that exist in the Mexican Caribbean and Riviera Maya, you’ll have noticed that hotel staff, officials and inhabitants work tirelessly to protect the environment; however, much remains to be done. How can you help the environment? Here are some tips:
Don’t use a car
On your vacation you should be relaxed and unhurried; take advantage and use public transportation, rent a bike, or if the destination allows, use your feet. This way your carbon footprint will be much smaller.
A sustainable meal is possible
We don’t want you to deprive yourself of regional delicacies, but you can be aware of how to eat them. You may get clandestine offers to consume protected species, and you should definitely refuse them.
Reuse and recycle
Reuse in different ways: a refillable water bottle, returnable containers for water or soft drinks, cloth bags instead of plastic. In hotels it’s often a problem, but there are other kinds of lodging in which you can use non-disposable dishes.
Be like you were never there
It’s vitally important to collect cans, plastic rings, bags, cutlery, napkins and all other trash you’ve generated during your stay.
These are just a few small steps that will help make your stay perfect and keep your destination pristine for a long time.
