...one with Energy Conservation as the destination!!
We’ve told you before about eco-friendly ways to travel when headed out on Spring Break. This year, consider a destination with energy conservation in mind. There are many lists that rank hometowns and cities as being green. Traveling to one of the cities on the list can allow you to being back green ideas to your own hometown.
One type of alternative spring break for a college student can be to transform their week away from studying and books into a service trip. Habitat for Humanity supports home buildings sites throughout the year and all over the nation. You can volunteer to build a Habitat home for a family in need.
The best part is that ENERGY STAR is the standard building practice for Habitat, meaning that each home is at least 15% more efficient than homes built to standard building codes.
If you go visit a new city, try to plan one where mass transit and environmentally friendly practices are in place.
Lastly, if you decide to stay in your local neighborhood, why not volunteer your time with a community farm or recycling company. You’ll learn more about your own community’s conservation initiatives!
Have a wonderful Spring Break!
