Ecological Tourism

We have a travel philosophy that respects people, their environment and culture. To minimize our footprint and do what we deliver is positive action.
We must consciously prepare for the trip: make fewer stops, using more public transportation. Walking can be everything cycling, or walking, what better way to see a city that “kicking it”?
Inquire on the airline you are traveling to know if you have any type of commitment to caring for the environment. For example, Air Europe has a Quality Policy and Environmental Management, in addition to receiving several awards in this area.
When one is traveling to soak up the culture, learn their customs and adapt to what’s there. Therefore, you have to go with what is done there, come on, and following the adage “when in Rome do as the Romans”.
You have paid for the trip, but no, it means that all things belonging to or that you can do what we please. You have to respect the rules of the place; do not get privileges and empeñéis in treatment of emergency and adoptéis or offensive behavior or environment haughty.
Adapt clothing to where travel. If you go to a country where wealth precisely conspicuous by its absence, try not to hold or attract attention. Adapters your clothes to the place you visit it.
What better souvenir to buy some local crafts? Besides being able to interact with the person who does it, ask how it is done and learn more about their culture, you will be contributing to the enrichment of the area. And ye shall bear this memory even more complete to your house.
The nicest thing about multiculturalism is our planet, we must be respectful of the local people you meet, open the mind, in fact, and is the essence of every traveler.
The people that you find are not part of the landscape. If you are going to photograph them, ask them for permission first.
Do not you bear “souvenirs” of natural and archaeological sites? Do not buy products made from plant or animal in danger of extinction (e.g. Ivory, skins, shells …).
In your stay at the hotel, seek to be prudent with the use of water so as not to wash towels take if it is not necessary. It is also recommended that you put out the lights before leaving the hotel and do not abuse the air conditioner.
The trips you carry out, always spare the trails and not come over on either side, as you can damage vegetation and disturb all the animals that inhabit it.
Try to travel in local businesses benefit.

With over one billion people who travel the world each year, the tourism sector can play an important educational role. You not only save water, but also all limited natural resources.

We want not only consider these best practices one day a year , but every day all do our part to achieve the improvement of our environment. We join our community be responsible!

Keys to Easter Green Travel

At home and in our usual environment -conscious citizens strive to be environmentally friendly with energy, water, waste. It is important that these little gestures we make in everyday accompany us wherever we go and if we travel, we continue to act in a responsible manner. Facing this Easter, when many will leave traveling from Naturarla we give some clues for our trip as eco- friendly as possible and because we travel the world without damaging it.

Choosing luggage care

A journey begins packing. Even at this time, to make the choice of luggage, we can try to perform some simple gestures that will benefit the environment. For example, when doing the wash bag, we can avoid the travel size containers as they are used products but too small packaging for its proportions. Best to take the usual packaging, and if better than soaps or shampoos best ecological as it does not pollute the waters in our destiny. If going on a long trip, and plan to do some laundry, is convenient to carry with us the Ecobola wash because that will not buy detergents and also keep the rivers clean.

Transportation: Advertising on our trip

Tourism means use any means of transport. And unfortunately transportation is one of the parts of the trip that result in a greater impact on pollution. Therefore, when choosing how to travel we must consider some factors, either to move to our destination or once there.

Definitely the aircraft is the most polluting means of public transportation, high emissions of greenhouse gases that cause, and are larger on domestic flights and night. In addition to emissions from fuel, is also a source of environmental concern contrails of elongated white cloud that leave behind airplanes because experts say contribute to global warming. Although the boat is not the most polluting means of transport, does require a boat cruise with a high environmental cost, the high energy consumption that occurs on board. Among the public transportation, it can be said that the cleaner is the train. Compared to fly or use the car, the train emits fewer harmful gases to the atmosphere, and allows transport a greater number of passengers a plane or a car.

If we travel by car, which is usually the handiest for short trips, do not forget that control speed, not abuse of air conditioning and carpool with other friends will be good practice to make our eco journey. This article (http://www.naturarla.es/consumo-sostenible/conduccion-eficiente) we gave some tips for efficient driving and save on fuel and emissions.

Once at our destination, especially if we take short trips, it is preferable to go cycling or walking. And of course, always better public transport than private, as it is more energy efficient than any private alternative to motor.

Recycle you wherever you are

When we travel we must not lose the habit of recycling, as we do at home. Separate consume waste, whether plastic, paper or glass. And whenever you can, take thermos flasks or stainless steel to avoid using a plastic bottle every day. Are also a good idea lunch boxes and reusable cutlery, which will prevent residue during our stay? If you smoke, get your butts, whether in the mountains, on the beach or in the city. Remember that you can cause a fire if you are in a natural setting. Being in nature we should not throw plastic bags, aluminum foil, gum or any other non- biodegradable waste.

Respect the environment, save water and energy

When traveling, we can try to measure and reduce our ecological footprint. Learn and adapt to the place of our stay is very positive. Because enrich our journey, discovering the culture, cuisine and the local environment, and that our journey will be responsible. Consuming local products, use tour guides and lodging in the area, or avoid taking samples of animals, plants and even rocks species are to consider measures to respect the natural or historic environment we visit. Also, since we are in a hotel, a cottage or an apartment, we try to be sparing with water and electricity we consume.

As you can see, there are many ways to travel, and to do our part can contribute to less pollution, reduce waste and save energy. You can be a responsible traveler, because for better or worse of our ecosystem, all the choices we make affect our trip.
