Sustainable Travel

How exciting is it that we’re a part of the generation that witnessed technology truly advance so quickly?? We experienced landlines transition to smartphones, hatchbacks to energy-efficient electric Tesla’s, and airlines fly to further & more exotic destinations.

We are becoming richer and more globalized with each passing year.

With globalization comes convenience, and there is also the unfortunate dissolution of our impact on the environment and local communities with our travels. Happily, though, people are becoming more & more environmentally conscious!

Surprisingly, it’s not that difficult for any single person to lead a travel lifestyle that is sustainable. And bonus- practicing sustainable travel can make you a much more frugal traveler too!

Our love of travel can be quite damaging to the places we visit but don’t fret because you’ve found one of the top sites for sustainable travel resources! I’ll be adding new posts to this page MONTHLY, and they’ll include ALL of my best tips for being an ultimate sustainable traveler (without having to sacrifice anything).
