One of the most important things we’ve learned over the past years is to take action and commit to taking care of our environment. Sustainability has become a goal of international leaders and the conversation about how to act and consume with responsibility will continue to stay in the spotlight during the upcoming years.
At Nakar Hotel we’re committed to improving each one of the aspects we can possibly can in order to join the wave of sustainable tourism we’re experiencing. And we absolutely love to see how Palma is turning greener day by day!
Mallorca goes green
There are many initiatives coming from the local government in order to position Mallorca on the map as a destination going into the right direction, towards a more sustainable lifestyle.
One of the biggest initiatives has been started by the travel industry sustainability group Futouris in collaboration with travel companies, such as TUI, to promote ‘Plastic-free holidays on the Balearic Islands’. Projects like this one certainly add to the conversation and will help residents and tourists act in a much more conscious way.
In addition to the local and national initiatives leading Mallorca towards sustainability, there are three things that you can do when visiting Palma to add your own little ray of sunshine on us.
Three ways of enjoying a sustainable holiday in Palma
One of the biggest subjects on the way towards sustainability is to have a look at our shopping habits. The way we consume does certainly leave an impact on our environment, but there’s a pretty easy way to change that. How? Shop local!
Local business owners often sell local products, which helps preserve the community’s distinction and creates more jobs locally, as well. In addition, shopping locally is the best way to help protect the businesses that make this city unique.
Next on the list: eating local. Why? For starters, local food doesn’t have to travel as far to arrive on your plate, so it helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions and contributes to improving our carbon footprint. Need more? Sure! It benefits the local economy, including supporting local farmers and other producers, also encouraging sustainable agriculture. Last, but not least, it will give you the ultimate authentic Mediterranean experience. What else could you possibly want?
This last tip on our list on how to enjoy a sustainable getaway when in Palma will most definitely make a difference, even if you don’t see it at first. Being responsible and aware of the importance of moving towards sustainability is the starting point for change.
And being conscious is something that we can do in our daily lives by committing to take responsibility for the environment in which we live.
