Traveling is a great way to open your world to new experiences and adventures, and the world is not short of thrilling memories waiting to be made and exotic places beckoning you to come over. But some local communities actually frown upon tourists because of the mess they usually leave behind.

Being a traveler means you also have to be responsible for making sure you don't make any damage or contribute to any kind of misfortune to the places you're traveling. Traveling green or eco-travel is not only a suitable travel lifestyle, but it also helps you trim unnecessary costs in your trips. Here are some simple ways you can do to help the environment during your travels:

Bring your own reusable water bottle. Discovering and exploring tourist attractions can be quite tiring, therefore drinking water every now and then is essential. Independent Traveler reported that billions of plastic water bottles usually end up in landfills each year, and they take a thousand years to decompose. You can make a difference by bringing a reusable water bottle rather than buying one constantly during your trips. It will also help you save money.

Eat local food and buy locally made products as much as possible. It's a great way to really get to know another culture, and according to Conserve Energy Future buying locally made food means it's produced in the most natural way possible, rather than constantly eating fast food on the go. This little tip also goes a long way in helping the local community you're visiting in.

Utilize public transportation in your travels. It's cheap, highly accessible, and it will lessen your carbon footprint when visiting a town or a city. Walking and riding a bike is also great, it will give you more time exploring and interacting with the locals. Although renting a car is more convenient, it's mostly expensive and before you know it, you've splurged a hefty price on the transport alone.

Throw your trash properly. It's a common rule, but even these days, a certain number of people still forget or don't mind on how they throw their trash. Most trash bins around the world have marks on recyclable and non-recyclable, and this simple gesture is something the environment will thank you for in the long run.
