Title: 5 Ethical Travel Tips With The Environment In Mind

5 Ethical Travel Tips With The Environment In Mind
  • The ability to travel is something that many of
    us treasure. We love to see far-flung
    destinations. The trouble is, Overtourism is
    having a significant impact on our environment.
    Hence Ethical travel or responsible tourism is
    the call of the day.
  • Air travel, for instance, contributes massively
    to global warming through the carbon that it
    releases into the atmosphere, while mass tourism
    in beauty spots is responsible for pollution when
    it comes to litter and plastics

Well take a look at how you can travel more
ethically so that you can still feed your desire
to see the world without contributing to its
destruction.Sharing Ethical travel tips with
the environment in mind1. Choose your
destination wisely
It might be tempting to go to a particular beauty
spot or attend a world-famous party, but if your
attendance is contributing to pollution, maybe
you should give it a miss. The Full Moon Parties
in Thailand are a classic example. These events
have a environmental impact on the marine
life where they are held. Perhaps it would be
better to do your research and choose activities
that dont cause so much environmental damage.
  • 2. Be careful of what you buy

When buying things in a foreign country, you
might not be entirely sure what they are made
from. Different countries have different rules on
materials that can be used to create products.
Unless you can be sure that a trinket isnt made
using animal products from endangered species, it
is probably wise not to purchase it.
  • 3. Be careful when purchasing your holiday clothes

Traveling ethically can start before you even set
sail. For instance, you can choose to purchase
your holiday clothes and bits that you need from
retailers who make a conscious effort to look
after the environment. Bonds, for instance, have
a set of sustainability goals which they are
striving to reach by 2020. One of their goals,
for example, is to reduce their carbon emissions
by 40. Supporting ventures such as these will
help to lower your overall environmental impact.
How to be a responsible traveler?
4. Ensure you dont participate in animal tourism
It is a sad fact that animals are still being
used to make money for unscrupulous vendors. Be
sure that you dont participate in such
activities. It means not riding elephants or
visiting places such as tiger temples where the
tigers are all drugged.
  • Make sure you do your research so that you can be
    sure if you do choose to visit somewhere that the
    animals are being cared for correctly. There are
    plenty of places that help sustain wildlife that
    you could support instead.

5. Be responsible
Remember, your responsibility to look after the
environment doesnt end while you are on holiday.
Watch your behavior. Make sure that you are still
making the right choices in terms of ditching
plastic wherever possible and that you are
recycling correctly. It is still possible to make
the right choices for the environment, even when
you are on holiday.
