Last month we linked up articles. chose Amtrak trains, restaurants help travelers go green by USAgain, a for-profit company that collects unwanted textiles and resells them, thereby diverting millions of pounds of clothing from landfills. This article is an interesting look at how travel options are becoming more Eco-friendly. For example, you might already know that train travel is more "green" than flying or driving; but did you know that one company, Amtrak, provides recycling bins in every car? Those of you who enjoy eating out will be happy to know that more and more restaurants are reducing their impact. Even some fast-food restaurants are offering recycling bins. The article finishes up with a list of travel tips such as avoiding the free continental breakfast buffet at hotels to reduce waste and bringing reusable drink containers to a hotel room instead of using the provided single-use, plastic-wrapped versions.

After reading Amtrak trains, restaurants help travelers go green, be sure to browse around the blog and read other terrific posts. I found an article entitled EcoATM provides ‘smart’ way to recycle Smartphones, tablets, iPods, mp3 players and another about going green in the bathroom. I also found articles on textile recycling. USAgain has great content and something for everyone. Check it out!
