Obviously it’s nice to consider sustainability factors when planning your holidays. But as much as we wish we could, we are not always on holidays. So it is even more important to also live sustainably at home. To help you get started we have put together our key sustainability tips which are easy to put into your daily live.
Buy organic food with little packaging. Maybe try the vegetable box from a local farmer?
Do I really need to eat meat every day?
Can I get to work just as well or maybe even faster by bike? And save gasoline, parking fees and stress on the road?
Separate waste. Do I have room for a compost? Recycle.
Have your own little herb garden on the balcony or in the garden.
Have you already switched to LED?
Give second hand shopping a try. You will find unique pieces and do something good for the environment at the same time.
Check your electricity provider.
Do I really need fresh towels every day? If you don’t leave your towels on the floor, they won’t be changed.
Why not try a vegetarian dish every now and then? Have a look at the menu of our restaurant Bazaar!
Better walk twice to the breakfast buffet than having excess food on your plate which has to be thrown away.
Check in advance whether the hotel you plan to go to is committed to sustainability. Have you seen what we do?
Can I reach my destination by public transport?
Do I have the possibility to compensate the carbon dioxide of my stay with a small contribution?
Respect nature reserves, animal protection, etc.
Ask yourself if there are still undiscovered spots in your own country and if it has to be a trip to distant countries every time? Find a balance between far away and close by travels.
Support businesses that are committed to sustainability.
