Green Your Theme-Park Day: Stay Close to Home

Amusement Park With summer approaching, it's time to start planning family vacations. This week’s tips will help you green your theme-park day so that you can have fun and still be kind to the environment.

Tip #1: Pick a park close to home.

Why waste time on the road when you could spend it enjoying more rides and games with loved ones? Picking a park close to home presents less of a hassle and it's better for the environment. Consider taking public transportation to reduce your carbon footprint; with gas prices climbing, your wallet will thank you as well.  A bonus: You won’t have to worry about idling in heavy traffic.

Tip #2: Skip the souvenirs.

Tip #3: Bring your own snacks.

Tip #4: There's an app for that.
