unnamed (4)The Travel Foundation has teamed up with Travelife for Hotels & Accommodations for this year’s Make Holidays Greener campaign to raise awareness of sustainable holidays.

The two organisations are calling for more tour operators, travel agents, hotels and other tourism businesses to sign up to support the Big Holiday Beach Clean 2015, by visiting makeholidaysgreener.org.uk.

Last year, the campaign saw over 100 companies take part, cleaning an impressive 97 beaches worldwide and collecting over 600 bags of rubbish.

Salli Felton, Chief Executive of the Travel Foundation said: “We’re delighted to have Travelife as a partner for the Make Holidays Greener campaign this year – the campaign looks set to be even bigger and better than last year. Make Holidays Greener has always been about tourism businesses working together for the protection of the environment and to support communities in holiday destinations. With Travelife on board, we will be able to reach even more businesses and holiday-makers with the message that better beaches are good for wildlife, for people and for business.”

Nikki White, Head of Destinations and Sustainability from Travelife said: “We want to raise awareness of how, by working together, everyone can help to take care of the local environment in holiday destinations and protect these essential resources. It’s a great way for our hotel members to engage with their staff, customers and local community on more sustainable holidays.”

Companies can support the campaign by organising a beach clean during or before July and by sharing their stories on Facebook and Twitter using #greenerhols. The campaign website, makeholidaysgreener.org.uk, features a range of free resources, including how to organise a beach clean and top tips for customers.
