Vacationing is a great way to relieve stress in our everyday lives. But often times we are adding to the destruction of our environment by partaking in un-earth friendly travel. Every year more and more hotel are being built on our shores and in our forests destroying the environment around them. This is a tragedy that could be prevented and you can help do something about it.
Instead of helping to promote further building of hotels and motels in endangered areas, why not explore a home exchange program? This is a great way to still vacation in beautiful areas of the world while helping reduce your carbon foot print. The idea is actually very simple. You help the environment by staying in homes that are already constructed and helping to reduce the need for building new accommodations.
Another reason that home exchange networks help the environment is that it eliminates the need to build and maintain a second vacation home. If everyone would take part in home exchanges, thousands of acres of land would go untouched and left in its natural state. This is a great way to save those areas of land for other ecofriendly projects like parks.
Signing up for a home exchange program is really easy. You simply pay a small fee, sign your current home up and start looking for others that you want to exchange with. This is a great way to see new places and help keep the environment clean and healthy for everyone to enjoy. Another great plus to being involved in home exchange program is that it cost nothing to swap houses.
So if you are looking for a way to be more eco-friendly while still enjoying a week at the beach, why not give home exchanging a try? You will be doing something good for the environment while having fun.
