It’s an exciting time to rethink how we travel.
While sustainable travel does mean “think green” and “minimal footprint”, according to the World Tourism Association, sustainable travel is "Tourism that takes full account of its current and future economic, social and environmental impacts, addressing the needs of visitors, the industry, the environment and host communities".
Ecotourism promotes greater understanding and appreciation for nature, local society, and culture. It is the cornerstone of travel with purpose: responsible travel to natural environments, observing wildlife, supporting conservation efforts and areas that sustain the well-being of the local people which leads to personal growth and fulfillment. In doing so, travelers are providing direct financial benefits for not only local people and private industry but for conservation, all while raising awareness.
As a Good Travels Advisor, I “believe that every meaningful journey is a collection of small steps. Take that first step with us.” From volunteering in Central America to kayaking in the Florida Keys – it’s a big world with endless possibilities.
