As tourists and on our travels we have a significant footprint – sometimes for better, but most often for worse. But luckily there are some easy steps we can take to become more responsible tourists.
Summer has finally arrived, meaning that it’s time to spend as much time outside as possible. Often this means being by the coast, either at the cabin or on an exotic beach. It’s not always easy to make environmentally friendly and responsible choices while enjoying the ocean, but luckily there are a few simple things that all of us can do, that make a big difference.
The DNT Ung (Norwegian Trekking Association) recently published a kind of a code of conduct, or a set of rules, for outdoor enthusiasts. We at Nordic Ocean Watch support these rules and in addition have our own tavaha tips. These tips help you make ocean-friendly choices in your everyday life, and they also apply when traveling.
Here are three tavaha tips that you should take with you, wherever you’re heading this summer.
Don’t destroy what you came to enjoy:
Reduce your plastic footprint: No plastic, thank you!
Don’t let the oceans run dry; choose the right kind of seafood
