Have you signed up to Make Holidays Greener?

So far 25 organisations will be organising beach cleans or local area clean-ups as part of this year’s Make Holidays Greener campaign, and more than 60% of them are Travelife hotels. This year’s campaign is aiming to reduce the plastic waste that litters our beaches and the seas and provides an online toolkit for hotels and top tips for holiday-makers.

The free online toolkit includes:

Nikki White of Travelife says “Pristine beaches, seas and local environment are some of the key attractions for tourists, so it is in all our interests to help keep them beautiful. It is estimated that there are now 8 million tonnes of plastic entering the oceans every year and that by 2025 there will be one tonne of plastic for every three tonnes of fish in the sea. Very soon there could be more plastic than sealife in our oceans.”

You can support the campaign by  helping reduce plastic waste, organising a beach clean and sharing your stories on Facebook and Twitter- #greenerhols.  Sign up today and register your beach clean on the campaign website.
