There are many things you can do, but the top three things that will make the most impact:

  • Demand responsible practices from all the companies you use — make sure you ask to see their policies on the environment/community and base your purchasing decision according to what you find out. Consumer demand will be the game changer for sustainable tourism.
  • Minimise your use of resources such as water and energy, and choose low carbon options.
  • Engage with the people and places you are visiting, buy local produce, use local guides…etc, to make sure as much of your money as possible stays in the local community.
