Simple steps to success
1. Go Overland
If you are traveling within Europe, then why not take the train? You will save approximately 50% of CO2 when choosing a train instead of an airplane.
2. Stay Eco-Friendly
Try to stay in locally-run guesthouses rather than big chain hotels. A small guesthouse is more likely to source its produce and suppliers locally, which cuts down on supply-chain emissions.
3. Avoid single use plastic
When you get to your destination, avoid buying bottled water or plastic bags. Instead make sure to have your own reusable water bottle and a tote bag with you at all times.
4. Recycle when possible
Instead of throwing everything to one trash, decide to make an effort to find recycling bins in your area. Recycling will always be a warm hug to the environment!
It’s just as important to conserve energy and water when on holidays as it is at home. Make sure to turn off the TV and lights when you leave your hotel room. Keep your showers short, and let housekeeping know you don’t want your sheets and towels cleaned every day.
6. Drive Green
An easy and straightforward choice is to choose to take an electric car instead of a diesel one, when you want to go around and explore the city. Our cars are available for you in 8 different cities across Europe, including Copenhagen, Amsterdam and Brussels.
