When traveling it might seem more difficult to maintain your circular standards. How do you still separate your waste? Can you refill your own bottle with the water in that country? What does your hotel do in terms of sustainable energy usage? How could you support the local community on the places where plastic pollution is the worst? Don’t worry, more and more initiatives are arising, the places we visit host also many conscious, sustainable entrepreneurs.
Furnify collected some summer tips:
1. Lifestraw: bottles with in-built filters to be able to drink water everywhere
2. Tijmen started the movement Trashpackers.
When you are traveling areas where you see a lot of plastic pollution, just join Trashpackers and start cleaning with a group. It won’t take much time of your holiday, but it will support that community or country a lot!
3. What hotel would you recommend your visitors? Think about Conscious Hotels on several locations in Amsterdam.
Circularity and sustainability is in their DNA.
