Being outdoors and trying kayaking, sailing boats, surfboards, kite boards, snorkeling equipment, floating mats, hiking or simply walking around will keep you from wasting energy and other resources that are often needed for indoor activities. It will also ensure that you get to see the destination firsthand and feel part of the local experience. In addition, while diving or snorkeling, be careful not to touch and destroy parts of the marine life.
Also, try to reduce the amount of waste you produce and make sure that no trash is left behind before leaving the island. Avoid using plastic on the plane, favor reusable shopping bags for your supplies and recycle when possible.
To get your judgments in, choose the local grocery where you can find traditional products, consistent with the history of the place you just visited. people who produce cheese, wine, fruit, etc. do not pollute their lands and waters; They do not use pesticides and do not overuse packaging. Visiting local farmers’ markets and grocery stores can help support the local population while reducing your environmental impact.
Never throw rubbish, including food, into the sea. Fish and other marine life cannot properly digest our food. Human food alters the natural feeding behavior as well as the trophic balance of corals and disrupts the normal predator-prey interaction.
