Sustainable Tips for Your Southwest Getaway

It’s no secret that we here at Incredible Adventures believe strongly in maintaining the wildlands and national parks. These magnificent natural spaces have been here long before us and hopefully, they will be a lasting landmark for future generations. Understandably, tourism can have an impact on these timeless areas which is why it’s important to minimize each and every one of our environmental impacts. If you’ve ever wondered what you could do to help, here are a few tips for eco-friendly travel. 


Though it may seem counterintuitive at first, traveling in groups can have a major impact on the environment. Imagine you are traveling with a group of friends on a road trip across the country. However, you each have your own vehicle to get from place to place. Why not pack responsibly and try to fit into one vehicle together? Taking one vehicle instead of several can be a great first step into more environmental-friendly travel. 


Otherwise known as bring your own stuff, having your own reusable items can limit the amount of trash you have. Whether it be a reusable water bottle, cutlery, or straws, limiting your waste might be one of the more straightforward tips for eco-friendly travel. 

Support Local

There’s no way around it—big corporations have massive carbon footprints. The goods they provide certainly can be cheaper and more convenient, but, if you want to make a difference, support small local businesses on your travels. On top of having a significantly smaller environmental impact, these smaller stores are much more intrinsic to these communities you’ll be passing through. 


This is where we come in. Our fleet of passenger mini-coaches operates on sustainable, petroleum-free biofuel made from recycled cooking oil and renewable plant-based stocks. This fuel is the highest legally allowed BioDiesel blend in California and is completely renewable. When you’re traveling with us, you can know in good conscience that you’re helping!
