The World Tourist Organisation
has published statistics which suggest that ecotourism (tourism directed towards exotic natural environments) is the fastest growing segment in the travel industry right now.
With climate change on the lips of scholars, scientists and politicians alike, it is more important than ever to look after the environment. These changes needn’t be ground-breaking or time-consuming either, you can make a difference to the environment by making simple changes to your lifestyle. For instance, one of the easiest ways is to find an eco-friendly place to stay on your holidays.
You may be surprised to learn that clay bricks (the material used for mainstream hotels and other built-up accommodation) are incredibly harmful to the environment. The clay used for bricks are typically mined out of the earth, which can lead to soil erosion, loss of biodiversity and pollution.
Luckily, Haven Holidays offer accommodation which is both family and eco-friendly. Just look at their glamorous camping options. From super-tents to cosy yurts, and safari tents to geo domes, Haven’s glamping UK holidays
offer green accommodation which makes use of sustainable cotton and polyester building materials, rather than clay bricks.
Best of all, Haven’s relaxing eco-friendly resorts aren’t in the middle of nowhere; they are dotted along the UK’s most fun-filled and picturesque beachfronts, so there is always plenty to do with the little ones.
Each glamping holiday uses minimal amounts of electricity, gas and water, while tents come fully-assembled with cookers, fridges and beds. With everything set up ready for families visiting the park, it makes reducing your carbon footprint whilst travelling with the kids even simpler!
