8 Ways to Green a Staycation
1. Keep Being Green
Like on any vacation, it might be tempting to let your green habits slip for a long weekend, but continue living green during your staycation no matter where you go.
Whether you stay at a local hotel or your own house, remember to help save energy and continue to recycle. Just because you’re relaxing, doesn’t mean you have to be lazy where the environment is concerned.
2. Use Reusable Containers
If you’re going on a picnic or just packing travel snacks, use reusable containers in lieu of plastic baggies. And, if you’re considering taking disposable goods, pack the washable ones instead, or properly recycle your disposable goods. Also, make sure to pack reusable water bottles so you don’t stop at the local gas station to stock up on plastic ones.
