Travelling Green – Eco friendly gadgets, alternative transportation, eco-friendly activities

There are many ways to insure that you travel green. Here are just a few things that make your travelling even greener:

Use eco-friendly gadgets

From solar-powered phones to backpacks that have charging capabilities, to rechargeable batteries and e-books, there are hundreds of ways to reduce your impact on the environment through the innovation of technology.

Walk, bike, use public transportation, or consider a hybrid car

This is probably the easiest green tip out there. You can be more eco-friendly by renting a bicycle or a hybrid car. Using public transport also reduces your carbon footprint.

Participate in eco-friendly activities

Doing activities that don’t hurt the environment such as cycling, surfing, diving or snorkelling, and hiking are great ways to explore the local area.

The Impact of Eating Meat

We all know that global warming is a major issue, but the United Nations has determined that animal agriculture is the biggest contributor to global warming.

According to the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organisation, livestock generates 18% of human-related greenhouse gas emissions. That’s even more than the transportation industry.

Producing half a pound of hamburger releases as much greenhouse gas into the air as driving a non-hybrid car almost 10 miles. The sad part is, global consumption of meat is said to double by 2050.

Keep these useful tips in mind when travelling. It will mean you are making less of a carbon footprint on the earth and giving future generations a safe and clean world to live in. One person can make a difference.
