I guess this article doesn't tell those who know the island anything they didn't already know and is in common perhaps with other destinations, but I was not aware of the full extent when we booked our holiday. We'd like to consider ways to minimise our impact and be most supportive to locals while we are there and would welcome suggestions. We are self catering so I am guessing choosing small local shops rather than big supermarkets? Buying local crafts rather than items from international chains if shopping? (It mentions Jimmy Choos in the article!) Being careful with water use e.g. not spending hours in a hot shower(Not that we do this much anyway!) Also, we are intending to leave kids clothes that won't fit them by next summer, in good condition but nearly outgrown. Is there such a thing as a charity shop or some other way of getting them to local people who would appreciate them? Perhaps donating to a church?
