Holidaymakers urged to consider lowering their emissions

Holidaymakers urged to consider lowering their emissions
With the summer vacation season rapidly approaching, travellers have been advised to consider their holiday options in a bid to reduce their carbon emissions.

That is according to ecoescape, a green travel specialist, which claimed that taking the train can help people to reduce the carbon footprint of their holidays compared to flying.

Laura Burgess, director of the company, suggested that people must question every aspect of their holiday plans to ensure that they know exactly what their money is going towards.

She said: "With people who are really doing something and doing it responsibly, they will be happy to tell you where the money is going and who their suppliers are."

Ms Burgess' comments came after research from responsibletravel.com revealed that 41 percent of tour operators believe UK holidays will become more popular as eco-minded holidaymakers look for ways to reduce their carbon footprints.

The survey also suggested that the rise in so-called "responsible tourism" is here to stay, with 94 percent of travel companies believing that local and authentic holidays will become increasingly popular as a result of the recession.
