Zero Waste Travel Tips: Air, Car, Hotel and More

I love getting out and exploring a new location. There are so many things I love to see and do while traveling.

First I love to eat the local food. Yes, Hubby and I are foodies, but it's just so good! Some of my favorite foods from travel are paprakash from Hungary, poke from Hawaii, and pallella from Spain. You can learn so much about an area based on the foods they cook with and how they prepare the dish.

Next I like to see the history of the area. Whether that means visiting a museum like the British Museum in London or a place where history occurred like Dealey Plaza in Houston or even just a notable attraction like Wrigley Field in Chicago.

Finally, I like to see the markets or shops. I'm not a huge shopper, but I like to see what they offer. Our souvenirs from our central European trip were umbrellas because it was pouring down rain and we forgot to pack any. We still use and love those umbrellas and every time we use them we are reminded of our time there. By visiting the shops you can find some unique souvenirs from the country or even just see how package free their food is.

Unfortunately traveling can lead to increase waste. The following are some resources to help you minimize the waste while broadening your horizons.
