It’s easy to get comfortable on vacation, enjoy the luxuries, and neglect taking care of Mother Earth. This Earth Day, April 22, practice some small changes that can have a huge impact, but won’t kill your relaxed vacation mindset.
LEAVE YOUR CAR PARKED
Reduce your carbon footprint by walking, biking, or taking public transportation around Breckenridge. Not only are these options cheaper, but they can have a profound impact on the environment and you will probably notice some new sights on your way. You never know where a friendly fox could be hanging out!
SAY NO TO RECEIPTS
Do you really need that receipt? By choosing “no” you’ll not only save paper, but you’ll also save yourself exposure to the petroleum product BPA, which is present in the thermal paper. BPA has been linked to numerous health problems, including cancer, heart disease, and reproductive issues. And besides, what do you do with all those pesky little pieces of paper anyway?
Breckenridge Grand Vacations is committed to sustainable business practices. Part of this effort is placing a strong focus on recycling and composting. There are numerous recycling bins placed throughout each property and inside the units. If you have any questions about what can or cannot be recycled, refer to this guide.
Help eliminate additional waste and water consumption by reusing items. Hang up your towels after use, place the card indicating you don’t need your towels changed on your outer door, and enjoy your day knowing that you are having a positive impact on water consumption. Bring your reusable bags with you while out shopping in town. If you don’t have one, they can be purchased at the markets on property or at City Market. While you are out in town, pick up an eco-friendly reusable water bottle. This is not only a great souvenir, but will help eliminate waste.
