Appreciate the local culture & support the economy by visiting local stores & restaurants. Try local delicacies & traditional recipes, buy locally made products & handmade souvenirs. Make sure your money spent on your trip goes back to the community.
MINIMISE YOUR FOOTPRINT
Reduce waste by using recyclable bottles & reusable bags. Say no to plastic bags & straws. Use public transportation or share a ride with fellow travelers. Limit energy use by switching off the lights & the AC when you leave your room. Conserve water by taking short showers.
Avoid non-biodegradable sunscreen
According to recent studies, many popular sunscreen products contain chemicals that cause coral reef damage. Check your sunscreen for ingredients such as oxybenzone or octinoxate & opt for a reef-safe sunscreen lotion on your next beach vacation.
