Some towns are boastful about their accomplishments and some towns, such as Quebec City, are too busy making a difference in the world to bother with self-promotion. The proof is in the pudding when it comes to their eco-friendly nature. See it for yourself on your next vacation to Canada’s Eastern gem.
Whether you always travel green or are just looking for ways to be a little easier on the planet, staying at an environmentally friendly hotel is a big first step in keeping the earth healthy.
Quebec eco hotels do their part to cut down on waste, reduce energy use and carbon emissions, and use recycled goods when they can. Many of these hotels are also centrally located so you can walk to all of the top attractions in town instead of driving. If you do need a lift, Quebec does have an excellent public transportation system in place for cruising around the city.
While you’re exploring everything the town has to offer, you’ll no doubt notice several parks and green spaces located throughout the area. One of the most popular sites in town is the Plains of Abraham, a 95-hectare park that is home to gardens, walking trails, and an arboretum. If you want to get more into the nitty gritty of man’s place in the history of earth, check out the Museum of Civilization. The site has travelling exhibits spotlighting the relationship between conservation and lifestyle.
Once you’re ready to head back to your Quebec City hotel, you can continue to make a positive impact in the world. Choose to reuse your towels and sheets more than one day in a row and try to keep the a/c and heater at a comfortable but reasonable Celsius.
Visit this dynamic city, and do your part to ensure that its green beauty lasts for years to come.
