We need vacations like eating, and here comes summer to our aid. Welcome are the escapades in the open air, nature, the beaches, the warmth and the few clothes. But the truth is that, despite the benefits of this season, it may not be the most conducive to the containment that the planet asks of us if we want to safeguard its sustainability. However, the good news is that we can enjoy the holidays and the summer without harming the land we inhabit.

For example, searching for nearby destinations. Paradise is not always a plane shot away, but we can find it much closer to us. A plane trip is environmentally three times more expensive than a car trip, although there are also nuances. Holiday options such as traveling the Camino de Santiago, at least in the direction of Compostela, do not harm the environment at all since it is done on foot.

Once the destination has been chosen, if we want to be consistent with the sustainability of the planet, we must think about how to get there. By private car or by public transport? Obviously, it is quite difficult to get to idyllic deserted beaches in Asturias or to that lost hotel in the Sierra de Gata if you don’t go by car. And here it would be necessary to dismantle some topic: a bus that is never full is more terrible for the planet than a tourism with two or more people. On the contrary, if you have chosen the beach to spend your holidays, what is more eco-friendly? An urban beach that you get to on foot or by urban bus, like La Concha in San Sebastián or La Caleta in Cádiz, or one in full nature that forces you to take the car or which you can get to by bus but whose accesses form tremendous traffic jams?

In addition to transportation and destinations, what you buy, what you eat or how you take food to your day on the beach or in the mountains also affects the sustainability of the planet.

These and other tips are what he offers us Juanjo Villalba in this article for Igluu.
