Earth Day celebrations provide participants with ways to take action and make the planet greener, bluer, safer, and healthier through daily actions. Earth friendly family vacations do all of the above plus they do not add to carbon emissions, contaminate water supplies, drain energy, or cause extra waste. The choices include tour companies, resorts, hotels, hostels, cabins, and campgrounds with responsible earth-friendly business practices which demonstrate respect for the planet and enable guests to enjoy holiday time and leave no trace.
The Green Spots folder featured at theFamilyTravelFiles.com features hundreds of earth friendly family vacation ideas. Choices span the globe from the US to Canada and Costa Rica to Switzerland. They include basic camping experiences, farm stays, hostels, cabins, lodges, all-inclusive resorts, and green luxury in the city.
