Duo combine to showcase green holidays






Travel Foundation teams up with Travelife to step-up greener holidays campaign


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: "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."


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, features a range of free resources, including how to organise a beach clean and top tips for customers. 


 To sign up today, go to http://www.makeholidaysgreener.org.uk
