About 700 million people worldwide travel every year, which is harmful for the environment. There's a lot you can do to travel responsibly and reduce the environmental effects of travelling.

4.1. - G. Drive less

The public transport system in Britain is excellent. Try to include car-free days into your holiday. Remember that cycling is a great environmentally friendly way to get around. And why not check if the place you want to visit is within walking distance? Sightseeing on foot will keep you fit!

4.2. - H. Save energy

Hotels use large amounts of electricity to light rooms, do the laundry and heat water. In your accommodation, turn off the lights and take short showers instead of baths. Simple things like using your towels more than once or turning off the air-conditioning can make a big difference.

4.3. - B. Produce less rubbish

Book flights with airlines that recycle packages left after serving food to passengers. In hotel rooms, reuse the plastic cups, or bring your own reusable cups. And do not take plastic bags for your shopping. It's really important to reduce waste.

4.4. - A. Buy local products

Do your shopping in small independent shops. Try regional food specialities and don't miss farmers' markets where you can discover delicious selections of meats, cheeses, and organic products.

4.5. - E. Share your travel books

Once you've finished your trip, pass on your sightseeing guides and brochures to a friend or second-hand bookshop. You can also leave them at your hotel for another guest to use – that way you'll have less to carry back home and someone else will take advantage of local attractions.

4.6. - C. Avoid flying

Did you know you can take connecting trains from hundreds of European destinations direct to London's King's Cross Station? Planes produce huge amounts of pollution, so whenever possible consider travelling by train or coach.

4.7. - F. Find a green travel agent

Before you book a package tour or an excursion, ask the tour operator about group size and the hotels you are going to stay in. Remember that smaller groups and smaller hotels are better for the environment. Local tourist guides are also an advantage. They can tell you more about local culture than any travel book.
