Make your holiday more sustainable
If you’re planning a trip to East Devon and want to be more responsible, here are some ways you can be a better traveller and make your holiday more sustainable.
- Travel off season where possible
By going in the off season, you can avoid the crowds and also help keep the local economy running throughout the year, allowing for businesses to invest in being more eco friendly.
- Eat local
Devon’s delicacies aren’t all cream teas and custard – there are incredible fish and sea food dishes, home reared meat and locally sourced fruit and vegetables to enjoy. Make sure to dine at places that source their ingredients locally or grow their own and shop at East Devon’s local markets.
- Use public transport
Explore like a local and use public transport where you can, there is a train station in Honiton with trains linking to London, elsewhere in the country and across Devon. There is a bus network, allowing you to get around the region and taxis, coaches and boat trips available too.
- Leave nothing behind
Take all your rubbish and belongings with you when you move on to the next destination – it’s an easy way to reduce litter and keep the region tidy.
If you love East Devon as much as we do, be sure to enjoy the region responsibly so it will be here for future generations to visit. Where possible, use reusable cups and bottles instead of single use plastics, recycle where you can and take all your litter with you.
