The next time you plan a trip, we suggest you put our tips for traveling sustainably into practice:
offset your footprint
The compensation consists of calculating how much carbon dioxide your trip would produce and investing a proportional amount in a project dedicated to absorbing or reducing carbon in the atmosphere, to offset your “footprint”.
interact in the right way
Sustainability is not only about reducing the carbon footprint, it also means making it easier for the communities that are visited to have a sustainable future. There are several ways to do this, such as staying with a host family when you study abroad, buying souvenirs made by local artisans, and shopping at local markets.
take care of wildlife
That means trips will no longer include animal-related activities that are not respectful of wildlife, such as inappropriate elephant riding or swimming with dolphins, which often mask cruelty to animals.
There are two rules when it comes to food: buy local products and buy seasonal products.
use less plastic
With just a few simple changes to your routine, you can greatly reduce plastic waste. One of the quickest and easiest things to do is to use a reusable aluminum water bottle.
