Understanding Travel

Tools to Make Your Travel Experience Jive with Your Green Lifestyle Traveling a long ways by plane, train, or automobile may not seem like the most eco-friendly activity. This can be enough of a reason for many to just throw in the towel when it comes to making any travel experience a green one. But it’s different now, and there is no need to throw in the towel. Your green lifestyle can come on vacation right along with you. Whether you’re flying across the country, or just driving a few hours, you can make great steps to green lifestyle traveling. Every family needs to take some specific things on their trips, and that is a great place to begin your green friendly purchasing. Probably the first thing that came to mind is a suitcase. Green luggage is rarely talked about, but there is definitely a big market of it to choose from for your family’s suitcase needs. You don’t have to stick with just one style or kind of suitcase either, there are a lot of prints and materials to suit everyone in your family, both young and old. Green lifestyle is all about making those lasting purchases that are good for the earth, and a tough and organic or recycled suitcase is a good place to put your money where your values are. You can also bridge your eco-friendly lifestyle into the products you bring to drink out of. This is both cost-effective, and good for being more eco-friendly. Don’t fill up your bottle at home, as security at the airport will make you empty it, but wait until you are on the other side and ask a restaurant to fill it at a small fee, or use a drinking fountain. If you take an insulated water bottle with you, you can be free of worry that you’re going to soak everything in your carry on. If flavor is more your style, you can select a bottle with a fruit diffuser and fill it at home before you go.
