My top 3 are:

Decline daily service - reuse bath towels/ linen

Always take refillable water bottles

Use own toiletries to avoid individual/complimentary portions.

when in a local area shop locally and not at a US based company like Walmart.

Always be aware of local holidays and customs that occur when you are there

use the recycling bins in your hotel room

When scouting for eco-luxe accommodations, think boutique eco-resorts that meld into their environment, championing sustainability while offering that cosy, under-the-radar vibe that screams chic but whispers to the planet.

Dining and shopping? It’s all about those hidden gems where your spend supports the local heartbeat - the kind of places where food is fresh, the crafts tell a story, and every purchase feels like a high-five to the community. This isn't just eating and buying; it's engaging with the culture on a plate and in your hands.

And when mingling with the local scene, remember: it’s their world, and we’re just lucky to be stepping into it. Be curious, be respectful, and let the local ways guide your days. Learn, appreciate, and adapt, leaving nothing but good vibes in your wake.

Responsible travel is not just about where you go but how you blend in, contribute, and take away nothing but memories. Let’s make every trip count, for us and for the places we visit. Ready to set the eco-luxe world on fire, in the coolest, most sustainable way possible? Let’s dive in.
