The Green Travel Guide : Your passport to responsible, guilt-free travel

Description

We're always being told to travel 'responsibly', but how exactly do you do that? OK we all know you shouldn't slog it up the motorway in a gas-guzzler, but is it better to cross the Channel by train or by ferry? Is it better to take a low-consumption car with four people in it, or to catch the train? When it comes to holidays, is it better to holiday somewhere well visited? The Green Travel Guide answers your questions whether you're travelling in the UK or beyond, for work or on holiday. It's full of practical help and suggestions and covers: Greener ways of getting around day-to-day; How to save on business travel; Eco-friendly ways to travel abroad; Carbon offsetting schemes; Great destinations for guilt-free green holidays. You'll even find a 'green travel calculator' to see how eco-friendly your holiday really is. Paul Jenner and Christine Smith are professional travel journalists and writers. They have written two books on the environment, The Environmental Business Handbook and The World Environmental Business Handbook (both published by Euromonitor) as well as a special report for the Economist Intelligence Unit The Tourism Industry And The Environment. Paul Jenner was a contributor to Vole, the seminal environmental magazine of the 70s, and has written for many outdoor magazines including TGO (The Great Outdoors).
