Sustainable Tourism: How to Travel Responsibly

Sustainable Tourism: How to Travel Responsibly


Travelling is something we all enjoy. From a one-day trip to a month-long vacation, everyone enjoys different types of travel. Normally, when we make a travel itinerary, we don’t take into account what that particular trip entails in terms of environmental damage. As the world reaches a critical juncture concerning climate change, it’s high time we become responsible travelers.

Here are a few tips that are going to help with your responsible travel.

  • Walking is a great and eco-friendly way to get to know any place better.
  • Walking/biking is the perfect way to explore a place because you see the places you want in the way they were meant to be seen. It gives you a better perspective on buildings, people, and the place’s life. It is a way more sustainable option than travelling all around in cars and taxis. If walking seems like an implausible option, public buses are always a safe bet.

  • The locals will always know way more than you.
  • Learning the customs, traditions, and way of life of a place helps you interact more with it. What better way is there than to learn these things from a local who has spent a big chunk of their life living in the exact same place? They’ll let you know a lot more than a Google search, that’s for sure!

    on the go
  • Reduce travel waste and keep your baggage light 
  • When travelling, keep in mind to not use single-use plastics and other non-biodegradable materials. It is advised that you bring your own reusable water bottle and fill it whenever you are able to. When you visit somewhere, be mindful to not be a contributor to the place’s litter. You’re just a tourist, but people have to live there long after your visit!

  • Go on a sustainable activity binge!
  • Wherever you are in the world, there are bound to be activities that are more sustainable than others. Hiking, heritage walks, diving etc., are all activities with minimal ecological impact. Avoid any activities that have anything to do with animal cruelty and environmental damage. With companies like Irida Naturals, you can enjoy things like on-the-go dinnerware that is completely biodegradable!
