According to a poll conducted by TD Friends of the Environment Foundation, a majority of Canadians spoken to have a double standard when it comes to being eco-friendly, being more environmentally conscious at home than when travelling outside of the country.

The poll found that 83 per cent of Canadians have never taken an eco-friendly vacation, which the poll defined as on that sustains, enhances or has little impact on the environment. Though if the price for an eco-friendly holiday were the same as a non, about 60 per cent would consider taking one as an alternative.

Of those polled, 90 per cent of Canadian hadn’t considered ways to make travel greener like using e-tickets, taking public transit while sightseeing and buying carbon offset credits.
