Over the past year, we have had more time to think and reflect on what is truly important in our lives. Protecting and caring for our local communities and the environment has been at the forefront our minds because of the impact of the global pandemic. The good news is we are not in this alone. It is within our power to make better choices when we travel, choices that have a positive and meaningful impact on the countries we visit.
This Earth Day we have the chance to focus on our planet, our home. The global pandemic forced us to give up traveling – and understandably we want to get our travel groove back on and start discovering the world again. Today is an opportunity to consider how we can travel differently, and we want to share some useful practices and tips you can use to make your next trip as sustainable as it is enjoyable.
The COVID-19 pandemic has heightened our awareness of the importance of protecting our planet and traveling responsibly. While travelers must take responsibility for their own impact on the environment (for example through carbon offsetting, using public transport, or walking wherever possible, and reducing their use of disposable products), many hotels have introduced initiatives to encourage people to travel more sustainably. For Earth Day this year, we have collated some of the top sustainable hotels that are bookable via Trip.com. These hotels are all actively working towards a common goal of reducing their environmental impact. Initiatives include: resorts that have energy-efficient buildings, hotels that no longer provide single-use plastic products, and hotels that offer savings or reward programs for travelers who re-use their sheets and towels over more than one night.
