Green Vacations

Grand Canyon big


It’s easy to plan green vacations these days. The options range from camping in a local or national park to staying in an eco-friendly hotel in a city to bicycling or hiking through a part of the world you’ve always wanted to see. Eco-tourism opportunities abound, particularly those that give you the chance to volunteer on a project as well as see the sites.

We’ll be adding a lot of content to this section of Big Green Purse in the coming months. In the meantime, these recent blog posts might help you plan your next green vacation.
