#1 BE CHOOSEY ABOUT YOUR DESTINATION

It's lovely to attend some remote tropical destination, but consider your carbon footprint, who your tourist dollars will soon be supporting, and how long it can take for you to get there. Pick a destination and activities where you will soon be contributing positively to the area community.

#2 TAKE THE GREENEST FORM OF TRANSPORT POSSIBLE.

This could not necessarily mean the cheapest, but before you hop in the vehicle with just two people, find out if there exists a way to utilize a train or other form of shared transit to get at your destination. Once at your destination, use public transit or (better yet) walk! You'll receive a much better feel for the town and some good exercise. Getting your blood flowing will not only help you with any travel fatigue, it'll also help you avoid those holidaying pounds.

#3 DINE IN WHEN POSSIBLE AND BRING YOUR OWN TAKE AWAY CONTAINERS.

Even though it's just a reusable coffee mug, if you're traveling for long amounts of time, think of the impact it could make to lessen one remove coffee cup every day. Take out from a restaurant creates mounds of containers (think styrafoam and plastic), so decide for dining in and only order around you can eat. Pick light foods, shoot for healthy options and fresh, local produce when you are able, and miss the leftovers.

#4 DO A LITTLE BIT OF RESEARCH.

Is the business owned and run by locals? Do they contribute money back to a local charity or are integral to the neighborhood economy? Putting in a little bit of time and energy to research smaller, locally owned companies will ensure your tourist dollars goes to benefit the species and people you'll learn about and came to admire. For example, you will find companies offering swim with dolphin experiences that helps preserve and protect the dolphins in their natural habitat. Neat little companies like GOOD Travel are cropping up to assist you research organizations you are able to feel good about supporting.

#5 PARTICIPATE IN ECO-VOLUNTEERING.

Not totally all tours are manufactured equal. Some companies donate proceeds to the conservation of the animals you're getting to feed, swim, or see in their natural habitat. You may also spend your own time planting trees, teaching English to local kids, or helping at a dog shelter. Try to learn more about the area you're visiting and see what needs are there in the local community or design your holiday around some volunteer work.

#6 FIND AN ECO-FRIENDLY PLACE TO STAY.

Many hotels are actually getting LEED certifications and participating in sustainability efforts, beyond just allowing you to reuse your hotel towels, like building green roofs, using solar energy, and having low-flush toilets. You can also use alternative accommodation options like AirBnB or sort through directories of green hotels.
