You can’t wait to hit the road – or the skies – this summer, and we don’t blame you. The world is your oyster, so you should capitalize on every opportunity you have to explore it. Unfortunately, if you’re not careful with your travel planning, you may end up destroying the same planet you’re trying to enjoy. One way to avoid harming the planet on your next rendezvous is to choose your travel company wisely.
First, be sure to pick a travel company that has cut out
single-use plastic items. Why? Because research shows that a large amount of
plastic is currently overwhelming the planet’s oceans.
If we don’t take
proactive steps to prevent this problem from worsening, we may see more plastic
than fish in the ocean by 2050. So, pick a company like Uniworld, a company
that provides river cruises, or the Red Carnation Hotel Collection to travel
with. These companies have promised to end the use of single-use plastic items
Also, choose a travel business that is clearly committed to
preserving and protecting wildlife. The reality is, poaching has eliminated about
12% of our world’s population of African rhinos. Fortunately, travel companies
like Lion World Travel and African Travel are serious about helping to conserve
Finally, pick a travel company that has taken proven steps
to empower its local economy. In many parts of the developing world, the travel
sector has a major impact on the local economy. In fact, it is the biggest
employer after agriculture in these areas. So, be sure that the company you
choose is like Trafalgar, which empowers its local economy by hiring workers to
give personalized and curated tours.
The more you travel with the planet in mind this summer, the
greater the chance that your children – and their children – will also have the
privilege of enjoying world travel in the years and decades ahead.
