UK ENERGY SAVING PROMOTES SUSTAINABLE TRAVEL AS THE HOLIDAY SEASON APPROACHES

06-04-2007 04:18 PM CET | Energy & Environment

Press release from: UK Energy Saving

As the summer months approach, uk-energy-saving.com is promoting sustainable travel for all those enjoying some leisure time. Whilst in no way wishing to but a damper on anyone’s much-earned break, UK Energy Saving simply advocates a sustainable approach to travel which takes into consideration the holiday’s environmental impact.

People’s holiday plans vary from relaxing in the garden to day trips from home and from a train ride within the UK to a long haul flight across the Atlantic. Sustainable travel can be applied to all of these options (taking the car to the garden would certainly be excessive!) and uk-energy-saving.com have put together some suggestions to make this summer’s trips more environmentally friendly.

The UK Energy Saving Energy Watch page includes a range of tips and information on sustainable travel. For those who have not already made holiday plans, for example, why not consider a break in the UK to reduce the carbon footprint caused by air travel? If travelling abroad, however, try to reduce the environmental impact of the visit on the local area and respect the traditional culture and heritage.

For more thoughts on sustainable travel visit the Energy Watch page at http://www.uk-energy-saving.com/energy_watch.html.

UK Energy Saving offers a consumer guide to energy saving and related topics such as recycling and renewable energy. They also offer the facility for you to save money on gas and electricity bills through their utilities marketplace.
