How To Be An Eco Traveller
Here in Australia we just bloody love our country and we try our darnedest to look after her. We know this starts with us! So trying to minimise our rubbish and waste that just goes into our landfills is where we like to start. We do this firstly, by trying to always be prepared! This means:
BYO KEEP CUP
Pretty much everywhere in Oz will accept you using a reusable coffee cup for your takeaway coffees and teas. If you forget to bring your own into the country there are many, many places you can grab one – Like here!
BYO BAGS, MATE!
Australia is working hard on tackling plastic pollution, so get on board and join the movement! Always grab your reusable bags when you head out for shopping or exploring local farmers markets. Whether you’re buying snacks or stocking up on Vegemite, BYO bags and look fab while doing so by making your tote bag unique to you, like one of these.
SHOP LOCAL AT THE FARMERS
We are spoiled for choice here with our local produce and nothing beats it than going down to the local farmers markets where you’re staying and tasting the gifts of the area! These vibrant community hubs not only offer fresh, organic, locally sourced produce but also provide an opportunity for individuals to connect with the land and support local farmers whilst enjoying a spirited, local atmosphere like here www.manlymarketplace.com.au. Happy exploring and shopping at the local farmers markets!
TAKE IT WITH YOU!
Remember to take your rubbish with you when you leave. By keeping the beach a paradise and taking your rubbish with you, you’re helping to keep the shoreline clean, crisp, and ready for our next flip-flopping adventure! And hey, if you see some rubbish when you’re taking your next dip be sure to take 3 for the sea and help out our beaches and marine life!
Thanks for doing your bit, legend!
