WHY WING IT?
The latest campaign form the brilliant team @ Hubbub - #WhyWingIt, are encouraging us all to reduce the amount of flights we take and spend more time in the UK as more of us are becoming aware of sustainable travel and the impact of carbon emissions.
The Swedes even have a name for it - ‘flygskam’ (flight-shame)
Their figures say that Britons fly abroad more than any other nation and worldwide emissions from flying are expected to grow significantly - and account for a quarter of the UK's emmissions by 2050, even though half of us don't even fly and 95% of the worlds population have never been on a plane !
Hubbub conducted a poll specifically for the Stag & Hen do market and found that flying abroad resulted in an average spend of £421 per person compared to £261 for a UK hen or stag do and highlighted how many feel pressured to go.
Most agreed that there are lots of great places in the UK for hen and stag dos, and all that really mattered was spending quality time with their friends, good nightlife and trying something new.
Check out their tips for planning your dream UK hen or stag staycation.
A group of 10 choosing Brighton over Barcelona could reduce their carbon emissions of the equivalent of one person in the group going vegan for 2.2 years or stopping driving a car for 1.4 years.
