As human beings, we have a responsibility to protect the one planet we live on and be kind to mother earth as much as we possibly can. Our environmental impact will long be felt after we have gone and thus, we need to protect it now, for the generations to come. This is why, one of My Suitcase Blue©’s priorities is reducing as possible our personal impact on the environment through carefully selected actions while promoting fine sustainable tourism. Zero-waste, climate positive transportation means, agriculture and food management, energy efficiency are just some of our sustainable policies.
Going through our concierge services, we encourage direct flights, which saves time on your journeys but also reduces your carbon emissions. In addition, with the choice of ticking the “carbon offset” box for your flight, you are automatically contributing towards CO2 removal schemes, for the wellness of the planet. Did you know that direct routes in comparison with connecting flights have been proven to offset more kgs of carbon dioxide per person?! Our selection of vehicles includes electric bikes and hybrid cars, for those wanting to go that extra mile by keeping down their ecological footprint.
The My Suitcase Blue© office has been cautiously designed with climate-friendly materials alongside recycled items such as our desk supplies and stationery. Our practises and policies accord to the corporate social responsibility (CSR), keeping a sustainable mindset at the heart of our operation. Furthermore, our collaborators have taken the same view on sustainability and therefore, gives us the advantage of using green friendly properties with similar policies and beliefs. As part of the CSR, a collaboration with the local community means support to the local economy and long-term employment. It is to go without saying that when you come to Greece, nobody knows the islands and culture better than the people who live here! The local guides on your trips will share every little information necessary to help conserve natural heritages and biodiversity.
Climate change is upon us and we need to accommodate our ways of living with the least possible impact on our planet. We choose to live a sustainable and friendly lifestyle and you are invited to participate in this mentality by going green with My Suitcase Blue©.
