Sustainable Travel Tips
1. Reduce your CO2 emissions.
One of the first steps to reducing our impact when traveling is reducing CO2 emissions. This can be done in so many different ways.
First, find an alternative mode of transport rather than flights so you can reduce your carbon footprint.
Second, if you really have to fly, then book direct flights instead of connected ones. Most of the time we think it is cheaper, but then we end up spending more on airport food, lounges, etc… and obviously, two flights are worse than one.
And thirdly, when you check your flights online some companies are more CO2 friendly travel than others, and even use renewable biofuels. Opt for those. With Skyscanner, you can filter your flights finding the ones with lower CO2 emissions.
2. Fly with Budget Companies.
Although you might have heard that budget airlines companies have a worse impact than the rest of the companies, that is not true. What is good about these companies is that they squeeze the maximum amount of passengers in the minimum space, which means, a lower carbon footprint per person.
As we have mentioned before, use Skyscanner to check the greener flights.
