Environmentally Friendly Travel Tips

Now that hot days are becoming increasingly frequent fancy taking the car and escape to any place out of town on weekends. For in those breaks be as respectful as possible to the environment, we offer a few tips to keep in mind. These are ones we developed when we left the ocean to travel inland to St George Utah, where we stayed at a beautiful little RV camp spot.

Continuing with the public awareness campaign “Connect and Reciclavidrio “in order to promote the recycling of glass in one of the most beautiful cities and more Elf Spain, Granada. And now that we are in the holiday season, we tend to change our routines and so I put some tips to continue caring for the environment and ecological travel more.

Eco friendly travel

Driving responsibly and respectfully

If you are planning your trip, it is best that the programs for first thing in the morning or late in the afternoon. At this time, less heat and therefore you will not need to turn on the air conditioning. The added advantage is that if a key date, leave very early or very late also saves you a few miles of jams.

If you’re hot, we advise using forced air circulation of the vehicle. Transmits feeling refreshed and not consume anything. If the temperature is too high, lowering the windows is not the solution, because it results in increased air resistance and thus a greater consumption. More appropriate would be to put the air conditioning on.

Another important recommendation is to not exceed the speed limits. Circling to consume less and speed limits are much more respectful of the environment. Besides, it is advisable to have the car with regular reviews that correspond in order. This ensures that the vehicle is efficient. Check the tires, the filter, the engine, the exhaust…

Finally should concentrate how beneficial it is to drive in the most efficient manner possible. Try to run at low revs and high gears and avoids giving braking and acceleration. Getting used to drive well only requires a little effort and your wallet and the environment will thank you.

- At the time of booking in a hotel, camping, etc. See if they have environmental care policies Reciclavidrio, for example the Planet 21 Accor Hotels, where their hotels are equipped with flow regulators on showers and taps waste or recycled as glass.
