Welcome to Make Holidays Greener

The 2019 campaign has now closed. Details for 2020 will be posted soon.

Make Holidays Greener is ABTA’s annual campaign, in partnership with Travelife for Accommodation, to encourage holidaymakers and the industry to create better places to live in, and better places to visit.

You can still take a pledge but you will no longer be entered into a prize draw to win a carry-on bag by sustainability leaders Patagonia. This competition closed at the end of September 2019. You can still share your actions however and get involved to help to ensure that people, wildlife and landscapes in your favourite destinations benefit from tourism as much holidaymakers do.

 

The theme for this year is ‘Reduce, Reuse, Recycle’.

‘Reduce, Reuse, Recycle’ was chosen as a follow-on from MHG 2018’s ‘Say no to plastic’ theme. Plastics will continue to be addressed in this year’s campaign, but it will also look at managing waste, including food waste, from a broader perspective.

From choosing local goods over packaged imports to carrying reusable water bottles and bags, there are hundreds of ways in which we can all contribute.

Make a pledge to make a difference 

Make Holidays Greener is encouraging holidaymakers and the industry to take positive social and environmental action. Make a pledge between 5 June and 30 September 2019 to enter a prize draw to win a carry-on bag by sustainability leaders Patagonia.
