 Every Step you take

make sure it’s in the right direction

EVERY STEP COUNTS BIG OR SMALL,

COLLECTIVELY

WE’RE A FIERCE ECO WARRIOR

According to the OECD’s environmental outlook report, tourism contributes to more than 5 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions and transportation is calculated at 90 percent of that number. Okay, so we all love to get away discover new cultures and places and lose ourselves for a while. So let's all commit to doing these simple things, they won't compromise our fun, but they will reduce our carbon footprint considerably!

PACK LIGHT

LET’S DO THE HEAVY LIFTING! Hang your clothes to air them out instead of having your hotel launder them this will save on precious water. And whilst we are on the subject of water - make your morning shower do double duty and use it to wash your smalls and while you're at it, steam from a shower works like a charm for getting those creases out of clothes (irons pull electricity). Shower, launder and electric-free ironing, now that’s what we call walking and chewing gum! Commit to carry-on luggage only a lighter load really is a lighter load when it comes to the weight of the plane and its CO2 emissions!

stay eco

PUT YOUR MONEY WHERE YOUR HEART IS! Eco tourism is on the rise because more and more travelers are asking hotels and resorts to do better. One of our favorites is the 1Hotels Group. With their commitment to sustainability from the build, interiors, energy, water, and even wooden recycled room keys, they are a wonderful alternative that does not compromise on luxury and style. They are also LEED certified! And who said you need clean bed linens and towels - can you commit to being a 1-week wonder and hang that towel up after your morning shower?

NATURAL BEAUTY

THINK HAPPY WATER! We all want to give good face but let’s ensure that it really is GOOD. Opt to bring your own natural soaps, shampoos, and conditioner. The purer your daily routine is has a big impact on water. Ditch the wet wipes for taking off make-up or wiping you know where, they clog drainage pipes and are really bad and even those flushable kinds can still hold their shape some 18 months later! Worship the sun without the burn by using natural ingredients such as titanium and zinc oxides.

Go super green with a staycay!

Wait a minute, hear us out, this is not really a novel idea - Think about it, we have supper clubs and book clubs, why not a Staycay Club?

hang with the birds

A FEAST TO BEHOLD! Check out all green spots in your neck of the woods and plan a fabulous picnic with your friends, your kids or yourself. Pack a scrumptious picnic, turn off your phone and unplug. You're on your Staycay and that means no work calls or emails, put everyone on notice.

SPA TIME

TAKE TIME OUT! Treat yourself to some holistic you time at a local natural spa. With the amount you’ll be saving on flight and hotel bills you can make this a regular thing during your Staycay time - face today, back tomorrow and feet on Friday, it’s your staycay so be as decadent as you like!

local eats

ALL THE PLACES YOU’VE WANTED TO TRY! Hunt out that insane sushi joint and all those other restaurants that you’ve wanted to try out for so long. Vacations are about eating out and that rule applies to Staycays too, so eat drink and be merry. Don’t worry about those extra pounds, you’ll work them off after your back home from this trip!

you get the idea, right? Vacation local = zero carbon footprint + lots more money in your pocket. now how can the tropics compete with that - hmmm…
