When we talk of anything sustainable, our lens of focus is the world as a system not just space and a system which connects time. So, air pollution in Beijing affects the air quality in Hamburg and pesticides sprayed in Brazil can curtail the fish stock in Bombay. So when even a small camping trip brings you all the pleasures of spending some quality time with your family, friends and neighbors; it sure does have some impact on the environment too. While there are things that are out of your reach, you can opt for those that are within your control to make your contribution for a better and greener environment.
By traveling through sustainable travel buses whether it is for the family camping trip or a community travel trip, we create a better place for our next generations. What usually starts as a one-man-show has the potential to end up for the larger good.
Buses for camping trips
Camping is one of the activities that involve a lot of travel in addition to packing and planning for the entire family especially if it a family camping trip. Now that you have got the road maps to your camping spots and have packed everything from tents to walking poles, all you have in mind is just to head for the nearest gas station to fill the tanks and just hit the road to the camping destination. But have you ever thought of the benefits of making use of public transport at least to the nearest station to your camping spot? Or even encouraging your friends or neighbors to opt for a coach travel together that makes the bonds stronger.
Buses towards workplace
Many software giants and other big conglomerates have started the initiative of bus passes for their employees. Needless to say, the benefits are there for all to enjoy- greener surroundings due to less smog and other harmful particles that would have been otherwise let out by each employee’s car.
A single tiny tot emerging from a big car just outside the school gates is not a healthy visual. If each child takes the school bus rather than commute through his mode of transport, the burden on the roads is sure to ease. This again translates into lesser vehicular and noise pollution.
Buses for religious ceremonies
Organising buses or coaches to ferry people from one common point in their locality to their place of worship on Sundays for the mass has the potential to make a big change towards sustainability. Apart from the collective goodwill of the devotees working together, the idea is sure to make noble contribution towards greener living.
Bus rides within huge parks
Parks are meant to be greener than the other areas of the society. Having buses that run on very less fuel within the parks rather than taking car to each and every spot is a much better way to enjoy the green scene. You can also opt for coach services for your shopping needs. Having dedicated buses by big shopping centers from the crowded localities to their malls is another example of sustainable transport.
Apart from making your outdoor activities more pleasurable these green buses go a long way in making the environment clean and green. Various possibilities offered by bus companies like Stagecoach have to be looked into for a more eco-friendly trip with your family or friends.
