Travel is huge business. It has been for a quite long time now and it’s only becoming more popular. More and more people can afford to travel, more people are traveling more often and more people are realizing the benefits of travel and how it can enrich their lives. The only problem with the future of travel is keeping it going for generations to come without ruining a good thing and destroying the planet in the process.
Sustainable travel is travel that allows people to see the world without harming the communities they visit. This means leaving things intact, not polluting water supply, closing off very delicate habitats to the public and protecting natural resources.
Individual travelers can do things that help sustain travel for the future including recycling wherever possible, supporting local businesses in the destination they are visiting and supporting eco-friendly companies.
