Earth Day is this Friday. While being environmentally friendly is a rising issue, being self-aware of sustainability while traveling is essential.
- The Auto Club Group recommends those traveling to eat and shop locally, not only to reduce energy and gasoline but also to support the community they are in. The Auto Club Grop also mentions that if you are looking for a knickknack, purchase a locally made souvenir.
- AAA shares a reminder to limit showers, reuse bath towels, and keep air conditioning and heat at moderate temperatures when traveling.
- Traveling to popular places can seem ideal, but the Auto Club Group recommends maybe checking out a less popular area or traveling during a tourist town’s off-season.
“Research has shown over time, and particularly now, that enjoying the outdoors is one of the top reasons people travel,’ said VP of Travel for AAA – The Auto Club Group Debbie Haas. “Increasingly, travelers, especially younger generations, care about sustainability. By understanding the needs and expectations of travelers, our organizations can work together toward a sustainable future.”
