We live on a beautiful planet. Nothing makes that more clear than travel. Exploring, seeing beautiful places, and learning about different cultures all make travel such a valuable and enjoyable experience.
But unfortunately, in our desire to see the world, we sometimes harm it. We pollute the environment, destroy nature, displace and exploit local communities. As a traveler, I have seen first hand the damage that mass tourism can do. From gentrification and overcrowding in Venice to plastic pollution in Southeast Asia.
It’s heartbreaking, but it is also motivational. It inspired me to educate myself and others about sustainable tourism. Travel is a privilege, and it is one we need to exercise with caution and responsibility. Because it can be done!
We can enjoy all the great things that come from travel in a way that respects the planet and other people. These articles about green travel, sustainable tourism and responsible tourism will help you became a better traveler. They will help you lower your carbon footprint, be more mindful about your choices and more effective in supporting local communities. So that travel benefits us all, and we can continue to do it for a long time to come!
