Green tips for travellers

Welcome to Celje, Slovenia, a land known for its pristine natural environment and the efforts to keep it that way. Please follow these tips and explore Celje in a sustainable manner.

  1. Help to preserve the delicate balance in natural areas by keeping to the existing paths and trails. Cycling or walking outside the established paths can undermine the biotic balance.
  2. Use public transport and explore new places on foot or by bike.
  3. Be romantic without stomping on grass and picking flowers. Meadows bursting with wildflowers feed honey bees, our dear heroes of pollination. Did you know that Slovenia is known as the heart and soul of beekeeping in Europe?
  4. Recycle, Reduce and Reuse. Make sure you separate your waste and deposit it in designated places. When visiting natural areas, take your rubbish with you to the next settlement, including cigarette buds.
  5. Use environmentally-friendly soaps and cosmetic products (including sunscreen) that do not damage delicate natural ecosystems.
  6.  Avoid unnecessary energy use. Don’t leave lights and electronics on when you leave your room. Use air-conditioning sensibly. Opt out of daily bed changing and room cleaning.
  7.  In Slovenia, you can drink tap water of excellent quality wherever you go. Please use a reusable water bottle and avoid using single-use plastic bottles. Refrain from using plastic straws and cutlery, and pack are usable bag.
  8. Help us preserve Slovenia’s rich water resources by opting for a quick shower instead of a bath, and by turning off the tap while brushing your teeth.
  9. Respect locals and their culture. Don’t invade people’s spaces by taking photographs without asking, being unnecessarily noisy or dressing inappropriately. Learn a few Slovene words and bring out smiles among locals.
  10. Remember, our actions can have a big impact on the world while we travel. Make sure it is a positive one. Experience Slovenia’s diverse cuisine and support local farmers by ordering food made of seasonal local ingredients.
  11.   Buy local. Support local craftsmen and artists by purchasing products directly from them and showing appreciation of their work. Opt for locally made handicrafts instead of mass-produced souvenirs.
  12.  Combat overtourism by avoiding overly visited tourist spots. Instead, explore hidden corners of less visited destinations and enjoy truly authentic experiences.
  13.  Educate others to be responsible travelers. If you see someone unintentionally harming the environment or local culture, mention something in a friendly way.
