We all agree sustainable travel can help cut down the amount of waste flowing into our oceans. It’s such a big problem that sometimes we as individuals meaning well say let the governments of the world solve the problem. If we as individuals make small eco-friendly changes we can help make the air we breathe and the water we drink cleaner, and that would be a great beginning.
Miami Beach Sustainable Hotels
The beginning of every vacation begins with a place to stay. But let’s consider only hotels that are sustainable. And to make sure the hotels are truly sustainable in spirit not just in their advertising messages but are eco-certified. The hotels below were certified as environmentally sustainable by independent organizations recognized by Google Search. The hotels range in price from $100 - $350, per night.

Miami Beach Sustainable Plastic-free
Say no to plastic utensils. When we order take-out or delivery from a restaurant for home use, we use our sturdy metal full-size knives and forks. We can do the same when we order take-out or delivery in the office, by bringing a set of metal utensils from home for use in the office. And tell the restaurant not to send plastic utensils with the food. You can’t throw away what you don’t have.
Miami Beach Sustainable Transportation
Instead of automatically calling Uber or Lyft to help you get around, try renting a bicycle found at the many nearby locations around the city. And the best way to get a look close-up view of the city and the delicious smells from the bakeries are by walking.
And when you get back home continue in a sustainable lifestyle by renting an electric bike for short drives, errands, and a whole lot of fun plus think about an electric car and saying farewell to the gasoline-powered vehicle.
