We have prepared a couple of instructions how you can help preserve our environment when you visit our destination.
NATURE AND LANDSCAPE
Visit our destination by bus. If you are traveling by car, walk or use a bicycle (your own or borrowed) to explore the destination and help reduce pollution.
There are many hiking and biking trails in destination. Stick to the marked footpaths, which always lead to the best green destination.
Spend the night in accommodations that strive for sustainable development with responsible handling of wastewater, waste, drinking water and energy. Check which providers meet the standards of sustainable environmental labels.
Dispose waste correctly in the designated bins. When visiting hiking or cycling trails, take your trash with you into the valley.
ENVIRONMENT AND CLIMATE
Our water is clean and drinkable, so there is no need for bottled water. It is better to have reusable bottles with you, which you can fill with water from the tap. There are also many drinking fountains along the Štrekna bike path.
Help us preserve the wealth of water sources, so choose a shower instead of a bath and turn off the water while brushing your teeth. In accommodation, use towels and bed linen several times by refusing daily cleaning.
Contribute to saving energy by turning off the lights, unplugging electronic devices from the sockets. Limit the use of air conditioning during summer days and reduce the heating during winter days.
Be kind to yourself and nature and choose soaps and cosmetic products that do not harm the environment.
