CO2 compensation when travelling

CO² compensation when travelling

CO2 offsetting, also known as climate compensation, is a way of compensating for currently emitted greenhouse gas emissions. However, this does not mean that the greenhouse gas emissions already produced in our atmosphere will disappear, but that they will be saved in the future through climate protection measures or projects.

One thing first, we are producing far too many CO2 emissions per capita in Austria - and in Europe in general - and are thus steadily driving climate change. If we do not change anything, we will not reach the urgent reduction targets confirmed by science, which will lead to catastrophic changes on our planet.

Solidarity farming

Solidarity Farming (SoLaWi)

In this blog post, we would like to introduce you to another ingenious sustainable concept that we can only warmly recommend. And that is Solidarity Farming.

It is about solidarity and community and, of course, about agriculture. The concept originated in Japan in the 1960s. It has now been practised in Austria for almost 10 years. But what exactly is behind it?

Van Days 2020

Camper & Vanlife Meeting 2020 with Show on the Land

The second best thing next to travelling with a camper is meeting and exchanging ideas with like-minded people. That's why we will be in Austria this year with our campers and with Schau aufs Land at two Camper & Vanlife meetings and would be delighted to meet some of you there in person.

In this blog post, we would like to briefly introduce the two events to you: The Van Days and the Camper Van Summit Meeting.

Sustainable in Graz

Info pages for a more sustainable lifestyle

More and more people are realising how important and actually inevitable it is to live more sustainably now and in the future. As a result, more and more people are looking for ways to consume and live more sustainably. But where can I actually find fair fashion, where can I shop without packaging or have my broken things repaired? Where and when is there a zero-waste workshop or a lecture on sustainable travel?

Alternatives to freestanding/wild camping

Alternatives to free standing/wild camping

Travelling in one's own four walls, be it with a small camper, a large motorhome or a caravan, is booming like never before this year. There are some who are very happy about this - our participating businesses, for example - but there are also very many who are annoyed and also complain about it.

Because wild camping is also becoming more popular, but also leads to more problems. Prohibitions are often ignored and rules are not followed. As a result, nature and the local people often suffer. This must be avoided at all costs.

8 tips for more sustainable travel

After Leonard has dealt intensively with the negative impacts of tourism and the topic of sustainable tourism in the course of his Master's thesis, he is called upon from time to time as a speaker on these topics.

At the end of each lecture, we always talk about how you can travel more sustainably as a traveller. We have summarised these possibilities for you in this article.

close-up enjoyment

Discover organic meat and wine not only when travelling, but also at home

We would like to introduce Micha and Lukas and their great platform nahgenuss. They also come from Graz and want to strengthen smaller family organic farms with their platform. Because:

"The personal relationship between organic farmers and consumers gives confidence and appreciation.

But the best thing is for them to tell us themselves who they are and how they got there.


Find organic and ecological products in your area

biologisch.at provides an overview of the Austrian organic landscape and helps to find organic farms and products as well as events in the surrounding area. This is achieved with a categorised organic industry directory - from organic farm shops to organic fashion shops - coupled with a radius search. In order to be listed in the directory or at the events, the organic entrepreneurs can make an entry free of charge, which will then be checked and published.

Sustainable campsites in Austria

Did you know that there are 15 sustainably certified campsites in Austria?

To show you a good example of a sustainable campsite, we spoke to Gerhard from the Au an der Donau campsite in Upper Austria. This campsite can claim all three, the Eco Camping Award, the Austrian Eco-label and the European Eco-label.
