Ways to Reduce Your Carbon Footprint

the open road is fun, but unless it’s a local day trip, you’ll have to pull over for sleep at some point. Add green stays to your itinerary and spend your money at hotels and accommodations committed to reducing their carbon footprints and other eco-friendly business practices.

Stay at hotels like the Hamilton Park Hotel in Florham Park, New Jersey, which helps employees ride share for commutes to work, reuses soap, and uses energy efficient lighting, or Tarrytown House Estate in New York which practices water conservation and paper recycling. Look for those with eco-responsible programs like Kimpton Hotels’ Earthcare, incorporating eco-friendly cleaning products, water conservation, and eco-friendly office supplies.

If you like to eat clean and green:

Buy local. Pick up fresh fruit and veggies at the local farmers market or eat at restaurants that use locally grown ingredients in their food.
Resist the urge to get carry-out. Getting fast food or taking leftovers home with you creates more waste. If a restaurant serves large portions, share entrees to avoid taking doggie bags home with you, or cook your own meals when possible.

If not. Here is an infographic on ways to go Green.
