Whispering Pines – Green Gab: How Green is Your Summer Vacation?


As many of us think about planning our vacations, how much effort do we put into considering the environmental impacts of how we travel (deciding where we travel and how) AND how green our destination is.The Sierra Club has developed two terrific quizzes that walk you through the analysis of both these questions.

Deciding where to vacation is always a balancing act: money vs. time, variety of opinions within family, whether to travel far or near. Adding environmental considerations might actually make the choices easier – and do the planet some good at the same time. Discover how your travel choices can make a difference. Take the “How Green is my Getaway” Quiz.

So, you’ve decided on a destination. Do you wonder whether the place you are visiting is tuned into their own practices? Check out the “How Green is my Destination” Quiz.

If you don’t feel like taking the quiz, no problem – they provide a direct link to the answers! Perhaps you can come up with some additional ideas of your own.
