    Yes, I went on a backpacking trip through the mountains last year, and I wanted to make sure I was being as eco-friendly as possible. I made sure to pack all my gear in reusable bags, used a refillable water bottle, and avoided any disposable products like plastic utensils.

    That’s awesome! When I went on a trip to Europe, I took the train instead of flying to my destination. It took a bit longer, but it was a lot more sustainable and I got to see some beautiful scenery along the way.

    I recently went on a road trip with some friends, and we rented a hybrid car to reduce our carbon footprint. We also made sure to stay in eco-friendly accommodations and tried to eat at local restaurants that sourced their food sustainably.

    That all sounds really great. I’ve never tried to travel sustainably before, but hearing your experiences has inspired me to give it a try. Do you have any other tips for reducing your impact while traveling?

    One thing I always try to do is research the environmental policies of the hotels or lodges I stay at. Some places have really great sustainability initiatives in place, like using solar power or composting their waste.
