6 Books for Greener Holidays

Being an eco-traveller sounds hard right? It’s no secret that airline travel alone is a huge contributor to pollution, large resorts generate incredible amounts of waste, and the list goes on… But from our experience, making your trip a little more eco-friendly is a lot easier than you think – if you’re willing to be slightly more conscious about your spending and your choices whilst abroad. Of course it requires some work and you’d hardly find travel agents with any concerns about the environment, but the outcome could be a lot more rewarding! With the right green travel guides, anyone can plan an environmentally-conscious vacation and have a unique travel experience, so why not check out some of the great eco-travel books available.
