Travel is such a beautiful thing. The breathtaking places you see and the kind people you meet. Imagine a beautiful white sand beach or lush green mountains. Paradise. If it wasn’t for all the rubbish lying around. I bet you’ve been there; shaking your head at how people can destroy these places. If we want to maintain travel and tourism in the long-term, we all need to start traveling more sustainably to not harm natural as well as cultural environments.
Sustainable tourism is defined by the World Tourism Organization as “development [which] meets the needs of present tourists and host regions while protecting and enhancing opportunity for the future. It is envisaged as leading to management of all resources in such a way that economic, social, and aesthetic needs can be fulfilled while maintaining cultural integrity, essential ecological processes, biological diversity, and life support system.”
This pocket guide should help you travel more sustainably on your next trips.
