Sustainable Tourism: It’s Not Just for Tree-Huggers! Go Local and Laundry-Free with Beantown Bedding

Posted by Beantown Bedding on 9/14/18 8:00 AM
 
As the movement toward sustainable tourism, eco-tourism, and conscious tourism gains momentum, travelers are packing, trekking, eating and sleeping greener. In the process of making a difference through their travel, they're also developing a whole new vocabulary—popularizing terms like “leave no trace” and “pro-poor”. They're choosing public transportation or car sharing services, such as Lyft and Uber; gauging their water consumption with a water footprint calculator; and scouring the landscape for locally sourced foods. They’re using tools like TripAdvisor’s Green Leaders to find accommodations that meet their demands for environmental responsibility.
 
This new breed of traveler is less concerned with cinnamon rolls being part of the free breakfast than whether the coffee is fair trade. They’re looking more closely at the hotel’s carbon offsets or their yurt’s green certifications than they are at free wi-fi and extra pillows.

Ready for Camp this Summer? Break out the Disposable Sheets!

Posted by Beantown Bedding on 5/1/17 9:15 AM
 
If you have a child, middle-schooler or teenager heading to an overnight camp this summer, chances are you’ve probably already started thinking about the packing list -- and most likely not without a hint of stress.
 
Before you go too far down that path, the moms at Beantown Bedding have some words to the wise!
 
Summer camps and overnight programs should be like a mini vacation for you. Assume that everything you send will be lost, stolen or damaged, so set expectations low for the safe return of anything other than your actual kids. Get the rag bin ready for the return of stained T-shirts and suddenly single socks, and pray there are no little critters keeping them company.
