Sustainable Tourism: Pack Lighter
Sustainable Tourism makes travel more meaningful.
Studies show that a majority of U.S. travelers now consider sustainability to be a critical factor in deciding on destinations, hotels, and travel providers. In addition, most people think about the green aspects first – reduce, reuse, and recycle.
Here are some ideas on how we can help you arrange your experiences to add meaning to your travels and help you better understand the win-win of traveling sustainability.
First, the three key pillars of sustainable tourism are:
a. Environmentally friendly practices
b. Supporting the protection of natural and cultural heritage
c. Social and economic benefits for local people
Second, we work with our preferred partners - Many of our preferred partners are actively engaged in protecting wildlife, safeguarding cultural heritage, and helping local communities in need. It does not get much better than taking the vacation of a lifetime, especially one that also helps make the world a better place.
Third, we can brainstorm together. Let’s start the conversation. If you are already mindful of your everyday environmental impact, let’s brainstorm ways to bring that care and passion into your travels.
Here are a few examples of sustainability tourism:
· Pack Lighter – Keep your suitcase lighter which means less weight on whatever vessel you travel on plane, train, ship, or car.
· Go Reusable – Choose water bottles, reusable masks, and straws while traveling.
· Limit Emissions – Choose a cruise that offers bicycle tours when sightseeing.
Your travel choices make a big difference.
Many of our preferred partners are committed to sustainable tourism, from conserving coral reefs to preserving historical sites to supporting local community development projects and more. You are also part of the global movement that uses travel as a force for good.
We are passionate about sustainability and are passionate about ensuring how travel contributes to the well-being of local people.
