Welcome to Make Holidays Greener

Make Holidays Greener is ABTA’s annual campaign in partnership with Travelife for Hotels & Accommodations to encourage us all to take positive social and environmental actions whilst on holiday, which will not only contribute to you having a great holiday, but also help to ensure your chosen destination is preserved for years to come.

In 2017 the campaign ran between 1 July and 31 August 2017 with great success. We would like to thank all participants for taking part
Highlights as follows:

• 849 customer pledges received

• Over 2,500 people involved in 85 beach clean activities, approximately 4,660kg of rubbish was collected, across 17 countries worldwide

Reducing plastic waste 

Our theme this year is 'say no to plastic' and encourage holidaymakers to find alternatives to plastic - such as bringing a reusable bag on their next holiday, avoiding plastic straws with drinks or by directly taking the Make Holidays Greener 'say no to plastic' pledge.

Enter a prize draw to win a GoPro with waterproof casing by registering a pledge between 7 June and 30 September 2018.
