If you travel, whether it be short-haul or long-haul, Eco-Travel or Responsible Travel, should be at the forefront of your mind. Even if you don’t travel at all, you should consider the points in this article to help protect where you live – your home.

But what exactly is Eco-Travel?

I’m glad you asked. Eco-travel essentially means to travel responsibly. Whether it be supporting the local community, being mindful about the environment & wildlife, or respecting the local culture, these are all steps to becoming a responsible traveller.

As long term travellers, these steps are even more imperative than if we just went on holiday once a year. We are well aware that our carbon footprint is high due to flying. And therefore we endeavour to make an extra effort in other ways.

Don’t get us wrong. We are far from perfect. It’s not always easy to be a responsible traveller, and we are certainly not here to guilt-trip you; however, there is no escaping the fact that tourism has caused irreversible damage to ecosystems around the globe. Not to mention the global plastic issue that I’m sure needs little explanation.

With this in mind, we have compiled this article with an abundance of tips and recommendations for Eco-Travel. From general day to day habits, to sustainable travel products, by exercising just a few of these suggestions, you are well on your way to becoming a responsible traveller.
