We probably don’t need to remind you about reducing your carbon footprint, but how you get to and from your chosen destination really matters, even if you’re staying in the UK. Heading to the South Coast for a surfing trip? Car share with friends or take public transport wherever possible. If you can’t resist clear water and white sandy beaches, consider how you can offset your airmiles throughout the rest of the year, so your overall footprint is lower.
There’s more you can do once you’re there, too. Try choosing a destination that allows you to travel around on foot or by bike – you don’t go to the beach to spend half the time in your car anyway! Check out local walking and cycle routes, and bike hire too.
