How do you make the most of your summer vacation while keeping your break eco-friendly? In our July WinItWednesday contest on Twitter, we asked people how they’re making summer vacation more eco-friendly this year. From staycations to adventures far and wide, we heard great tips and ideas for enjoying summer with the planet in mind.

Congratulations to our winners, who will each receive a $100 Walmart gift card:

  • @RainyNitz – I want to build a mini raft with the kids made out of recycled soda bottles and materials for the pool/beach.
  • @JosJottings – This summer we’re taking public transportation to our vacation. We’re staying at an agri-tourism farm.
  • @smiling_mama – So many ways. Keeping TV off, riding bikes instead of driving many places, using grill to cook & many more.
What are your tips for making summer vacation more eco-friendly?
