Travel By Train
ONE OF THE BEST WAYS OF TRAVELLING FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
There are several options :
My sister found this website which seems a good site for train routes and timetables : www.seat61.
Packed Lunch Solutions : rather than buying pre-wrapped snadwiches on-route stop at the service stations with restaurants or a bakery offering sandwiches. A great idea is to bring your own packed lunch : my niece bought me some reusable sandwich warppers from www.re-wrap-it.co.uk . Alternatively if you already have tupperware at home then use this plus reusable water bottles. I am sure there are more ideas out there so just let me know and I will add them :)
Hot drinks on route : don't forget to bring your own reusable cup! Some service stations offer coffee not from a vending machine which is a great way to cut down on waste. Don't forget to bring your own teaspoon though as they often give you a plastic stirer
Eurostar have a lot of information on their website : https://www.eurostar-treadlightly.com/en/environment.php
