Before taking a flight, think about the planet!
The first tip for organizing eco-sustainable trips is to eliminate this means of travel, replacing it with alternatives with a lower environmental impact, such as the train.

When we change it we produce far more waste than we think. Dentists, for example, suggest replacing your toothbrush every 3 months or even more often. Imagine how many we can consume and how much plastic we can produce. The solution is not to stop brushing your teeth, but to make sustainable choices, such as opting for toothbrushes made of recyclable wood. Search in category: Cosmetics & Products for the Person

Use only solid soap and shampoo
Solid soaps take out much of the packaging, saying goodbye to plastic. They are more natural, they do not contain silicones, petrolatum and parabens.

Use your car as little as possible

There are more ecological and less expensive alternatives to get around: public transport, bicycles, electric scooters, and in many cases you can even go on foot, will be a choice that will also reward your health. If you really have to take the car, at least share the journey with someone. Search in category: Sustainable Mobility

Water is a precious natural resource that we should pay more attention to. The bathroom is one of the spaces in our home where we waste the most: use cold water whenever you can and rationalize consumption. Don’t leave the faucet running unnecessarily, for example when brushing your teeth or soaping. Replace the bathroom with the shower: you will consume four times less water and energy.
