Travel Green

Yesterday we talked about Honeymoon registries. Today we'd like to talk to you about another way to amp up your honeymoon: by going green. Many couples choose to go abroad for the honeymoons, to rare and beautiful locales. By going green, you can ensure that these desinations are around for generations to come.

When planning eco-travel (whether it's a honeymoon, annual family getaway, or corporate retreat), there's a few key aspects to keep in mind.
  • Book your stay at a green hotel. Search green hotel directories like Green Hotels Association to find hotels with eco-friendly practices.
  • Or check out one of these earth-friendly resorts around the world.
  • Eat at restaurants that use local, organic foods.
  • Rent a fuel efficient vehicle to get around your destination city.
  • Offset the carbon footprint of your trip. By purchasing carbon offsets, you can counteract the emissions of your airfare. Use a site like Sustainable Travel International, where you can enter the miles travelled and other factors of your trip.
