Being eco-friendly means that you do all you can for the planet and its population, always trying to lead a healthier and more environmentally friendly life. Many people strive to live their life in a way that is environmentally conscious. If you fall into this category, you likely prefer vacationing in this type of environment as well.

If you are a “green” type of person, eco-friendly timeshare locations are likely at the top of your list of vacation getaways to buy or rent. Of course, numerous options are available for you to consider all over the world, each with varying degrees of environmental impact. Several of these options work particularly well for the environmentally conscious.

# 1: Trelowarren

For a particularly unique timeshare destination, you should visit Trelowarren in Cornwall, England. The area itself is amazingly beautiful with houses and cottages built from natural materials, surrounded by stunning greenery. The resort features a district heating system and its tap water is not filled with chemicals or pesticides, as it is from the resort’s own local springs.

# 2: Proximity Hotel

There are quite a few other more traditional hotels and resorts around the world that strive to be environmentally friendly. Their main priority is staying green, yet still allowing you to indulge and relax without hurting the earth or environment. If you want to stay in the United States, you might enjoy the Proximity Hotel in Greensboro, NC. The hotel was built with recycled materials. It conserves energy by using efficient lighting and plumbing, and even features elevators that recharge, similar to a hybrid vehicle.

# 3: El Silencio Lodge

If you would like to visit a resort outside the States, try the El Silencio Lodge in Costa Rica. This resort offers more than many. Its main attraction to eco-friendly travelers is the fact that this is a low-impact resort located in the Costa Rican jungle. Whatever interests you, between exploring the area, unwinding, getting in touch with nature and simply relaxing, the resort will cater to your needs. They even provide a wellness menu in their restaurants, which means no red meat and no chemical pesticides in the greens or chicken.

You can either rent or purchase properties from timeshare resorts. However, they tend to offer you much more if you own, especially if you are concerned with it being or staying economically friendly. Being an owner of a timeshare gives you more control over the property and its maintenance and operation.

Of course, no matter what resort you choose to visit, much of the environmental impact of your trip depends on you. For example, you decide when to leave the lights on, how much hot water to use, whether to use the air conditioning system and for how long and so on. Even a visit to an environmentally friendly resort can harm the planet if you are careless during your stay. Whatever you choose, these simple ideas and strategies can help you enjoy a green holiday while minimizing your impact on the environment.
