Make Holidays Greener every day

This year, Travelife and the Travel Foundation are joining forces with others across the industry to deliver the Make Holidays Greener Big Holiday Beach Clean campaign

The campaign celebrates what the travel industry is doing to Make Holidays Greener and will coordinate beach cleans around the world throughout July asking tour operators, travel agents and holiday-makers to help tackle the growing problem of plastic waste by reducing the amount they throw away.

But helping to reduce the rubbish we produce is only one part of a much bigger picture. Having a sustainability approach for your business means you’ll be able to find ways to improve the customer holiday experience, enhance and safeguard your brand reputation and reduce operating costs. ABTA’s Better Places Programme provides a bespoke tool for Members to conduct an initial assessment and focus on actions that are right for your business. It only takes about 10-15 minutes so what are you waiting for, why not conduct your initial assessment today and play your part in creating better places and delivering better holidays.


And if you want to get involved with Make Holidays Greener, please visit the website where you’ll find a simple online toolkit with statistics, top tips, images and posters to help you spread the campaign message and promote what you’re doing to your customers.
