The past two years have cast a revealing lens on our actions as humanity and the devastating effect they have on our planet. As we emerge from our Covid hibernation, travel is the first port of call for many and there is an overwhelming shift towards travelling responsibly and respectfully.
Travel is a privilege and should always be treated as such. The freedom to travel luxuriously comes with a responsibility to travel gently and mindfully. Do your research, make informed decisions and leave a lighter footprint. Be the kind of traveller you’d want to meet in your own country. We have a global responsibility to ensure our travel decisions directly benefit the land, wildlife and people of a destination.
Of course, responsible travel is far more than simply switching lights off, reusing towels and refusing plastic. This is a compilation of actions, both big and small, that travellers can take to ensure their travel decisions help make a meaningful difference.
Let’s all do better, be better, and travel better. We owe it to our planet.
