Labor day is supposed to be about celebrating the worker and all of the efforts or organized unions and labor to get worker’s rights. So it is fitting that many the holiday to also relax.
Traditionally, schools return after labor day and therefore, many families will be hitting the road for last minute beach trips and visits to family that are far away. In the interest of do no harm to the planet, Harmless Harvest, the company behind the first ever “Fair For Life” certified coconut water, shared some mindful travel tips that help minimize travelers’ carbon footprint this Labor Day weekend:
IT’S COOL TO CARPOOL
Labor Day weekend is an opportunity for families and friends to hop in a car and go on a quick getaway. Opting to take one car (instead of several) significantly reduces greenhouse emissions and makes for an entertaining round of carpool karaoke.
Choose snacks that are close to how nature intended them and produced by companies that care about their ingredients. Harmless Harvest is a coconut water company that practices sustainable farming methods, which have minimal impact on the planet. Choose wisely, stay hydrated and drink up!
You may not realize this, but hotels are large energy consumers when it comes to energy and water use (e.g. lighting, air conditioning, laundry). Instead of booking a room at a hotel, consider packing a tent and going camping instead. You’ll reduce your impact on the environment and be closer to nature.
SHARE A BIKE
There are few better ways to sight see than by bicycle. Leave your personal bike at home and rent from a local bike shop. Not only will your ride emit zero pollution, your family and friends will also get a great workout! Because in the end, what’s good for you is also good for the planet.
Harmless Harvest Coconut Water is constantly thinking about ways to support the environment. The company is revolutionizing the impact the beverage industry has on the planet with its ecosystem-based business model. They produce the best-tasting coconut water around and are leading the efforts in educating consumers on ways they can reduce their impact on the environment.
So gather your friends and family, pack your tents, and plan a “greener” Labor
