Who doesn’t love traveling, seeing new places, and meeting new people? Traditional travel, however, has come at a cost to the earth. That’s why environmentally-conscious travelers are turning to ecotourism.
Through ecotourism, travelers can have fun, help the earth, and learn ways they can positively impact the planet long after vacation is over.
According to the International Ecotourism Society, ecotourism involves THREE main components:
The growing trend in ecotourism is proof that more people are aware of the environmental crisis facing the planet. And more people want to do something about it.
You don’t have to be an ecologist, a botanist, or any other ‘ist’ to go on a vacation that is a cleaner, greener option for the planet. You don’t have to go far. And you don’t have to be uncomfortable. In fact, most eco-vacations are luxurious.
One of the amazing things about ecotourism is that you can take an eco-trip to just about anywhere in the world, so if your schedule is full, check out some places that are practically in your own backyard. Eco-efforts are going on all around you, so consider day trips and staycation destinations that are close-by. You’ll contribute to local sustainability efforts, learn what people are doing to combat climate change near you, and find new ways to add your efforts to the mix.
Plus, you’ll get a relaxing, luxury vacation that will sooth your soul and leave you with memories to last a lifetime. (That’s WAY better than a trip to a crowded amusement park to stand in long lines!)
