How Travelers Can Stay Eco-Minded in a Pandemic

Face masks and disinfectants don't have to come at the expense of sustainability.

 

If you’re sensitive to environmental causes, it might be hard to surrender to the new extra-cautious COVID-19 hygiene protocols, much less turn a blind eye to the tsunami of single-use plastic and undertow of bacteria-zapping cleaning products being used everywhere. But when faced with the magnitude of these times, green travelers shouldn't feel that they have to go against the tide in pursuit of positive change—thankfully, many hotels have adapted to our current needs, but with an eco-friendly spirit. And it’s good to remember that even the smallest socio-economic-impact considerations can lead to much more community-friendly actions…The same is true of EvaClean from EarthSafe, which is used for disinfecting in the likes of the AKA hotel in Capitol Hill.
