There are simple measures which can be adopted while traveling which will reduce the impact on the places we visit. There is a constant tension of the damage we are causing to environment for the sake of our travel. In order to bring it down to the least or almost null we can follow certain practices and stick by them. Few are as simple as not Littering!
Reduce travelling by air
There are fuel efficient engines lately which have a lesser emission of gases into the atmosphere. But, try as much as possible not to take planes to reach places which are accessible through other means.
Carry your own water bottle
In order to reduce the use of plastic in the form of packaged drinking water bottles, carry your own bottles which can be refilled and reused. Try to refill every place you have an access to clean drinking water.
Carry your own Toiletries–
Bydoing this we you can reduce using the toiletries provided at hotels, which are usually not easily degradable and are disposed within one or two uses.
Do not Litter
That shall be the biggest contribution towards nature. By only disposing garbage at designated areas and not littering around (especially plastic) a lot of pollution can be reduced.
Use of Public Transport
While traveling alone or just two people avoid travelling by your own vehicles instead use public transport. This way you are reducing road congestions as well as burning of more fossil fuels.
Use a soft copy of documents
Vouchers, tickets and other such documents the hard copy of which isn’t required can be maintained in mails or drives instead of printing them.
Stay at Hotels or accommodations following sustainable practices
