Spring Break

Reuse your towels and straighten your sheets
Bring a refillable bottle
And walk to restaurants down the street.
Don’t just get wild during your spring break
Get green—our entire planet’s at stake!

Spring break’s comin’ right up and you know what that means—it’s time to start planning your sunny getaway.  Here are five tips for planning an eco-friendly vacation:

  • Avoid cruise ships.  Environmentalists and key members of our government agree that ship emissions are the most toxic source of pollution worldwide.
  • >In a tropical hot-spot?  Shut off the A/C while you’re snorkeling, sunbathing, or bar-hopping.  You didn’t buy a ticket to the Bahamas to sit in your hotel room watching pay-per-view, did you?
  • Bring your own headphones for the flight.  One major airline threw away over 20 million disposable headsets last year.  Think of all the energy and trash we could save from our landfills.
  • Offset the carbon emissions from your flight out yonder by purchasing Green Tags.  https://www.greentagsusa.org/GreenTags/index.cfm That’s guilt-free travel for ya!
  • Instead of driving up the coast line, rent a bicycle, dust off your roller blades or take a paddle boat on the water.  You’ll save on gas and the only thing you’ll be polluting the air with are your cardio-fueled breaths.
