Five Ways to Go Green While on Vacation

At Sunscape Resorts & Spas, we are thrilled to offer Unlimited-Fun® getaways while maintaining a focus on measurable sustainability efforts. We are continuously committed to lessening our environmental impact and encourage all of our guests to do the same. It is all too easy to neglect our typical “green” habits and behaviors while on vacation. However, we have just as much of an impact on the environment when we are on vacation as we do at home. Below are five easy tips for going green while you’re on vacation.

The incredible natural scenery of Sunscape Sabor Cozumel, Sunscape Dorado Pacifico Ixtapa and Sunscape Curacao Resorts & Spas.

  • Unplug everything: Some of the most important things you can do to go green on vacation start before you even leave your home! Over time, electric vampirism can make a big impact on both the environment and your electric bill. Before you leave for your trip, unplug everything: the TV, electronic chargers, computers, microwaves, clocks, printers, cable boxes and anything else you can find that plugs in to the wall. Standby power can account for up to 10 percent of your electric bill and many plugged-in items quickly add up. Why pay for electric consumption when you aren’t even home? Don’t forget to shut off the heat or air conditioner, or set the thermostat closer to the temperature outdoors, either!
  • Use biodegradable sunblock: The ingredients in chemical-based sunscreens can cause damage to already delicate coral reefs. If you plan on going in the water, be sure to choose a biodegradable or “reef-friendly” sunscreen. They are even mandatory in some areas of Cancun and Cozumel!
  • Shut down your hotel room: Just because you’re not in your own home paying for electricity isn’t a reason to leave the lights on all day. Shut off lights whenever you leave your room and use natural light whenever possible. Turn off your air conditioning whenever you leave the room. It eats up a whole lot of power in hot, tropical locations and a room or suite will cool down quickly as soon as you return and turn the A/C back on.
  • Buy local: If you’re exploring the area or on a day-trip, check out souvenirs from local artists and markets. You’ll find crafts and handiwork that are truly unique to your vacation locale and also support the local community.
  • Reuse towels and linens: Hardly anyone would wash their towels and bed linens after each use at home. There’s no need to do so at a resort, either. Reusing bath towels and linens saves money by reducing water, energy and detergent usage as well as labor.
All it takes are a few simple steps for your vacation to be just as green as your everyday life would be at home. See you soon at Sunscape Resorts & Spas!
