Savvy Tips You Should Know

According to the International Air Transport Association (IATA), the number of travelers will nearly double to 7.2 billion passengers by 2035. And the collective spend by travelers will be in the trillion dollar range. In 2017, Americans spent $1 trillion traveling. Imagine if we spend this amount on purposeful and positive impact filled travel activities. Talk about voting with our trillion bucks!

TIPS AND TRICKS

CONSIDER traveling and volunteering at the same time. Volunteering makes your time and expertise become a meaningful impact in local communities and economies.

LOOK for volunteer farming opportunities with organic, permaculture or regenerative farmers.

How Do You Travel Sustainably?

Is it true that traveling can lead to negative impacts, such as carbon emissions spewing from air travel, increased resource use, and exploitation of native communities? There are many situations where these impacts do occur. But, let’s focus on the different sustainable travel options. 

To travel sustainably means planning ahead. If you decided to visit Thailand and get a sense of the natural beauty of their tropical forests or the majesty of Asian Elephants, seek out socially conscious stays, sustainable tourism outfits, and local cultural and environmentally conscious guides. Some of these accommodations work directly to fight against human trafficking activities, preserve natural habitats, and more.

Seek out eateries that grow and cook local and seasonal ingredients. These are yummier and healthier too. Consider traveling and volunteering at the same time. We are strong proponents of volunteering because we find this to be a more culturally enriching experience.
