Sustainability and travel don’t exactly go hand in hand. Most of us are more conscious of our carbon footprint than ever, and cutting back on flying seems like the obvious way to shrink it. But taking a train or staying put aren’t the only solutions. The rise of eco-tourism has made it possible to explore destinations in a greener, cleaner way.
To celebrate Earth Month, Big 7 Travel has selected 50 destinations around the globe that are doing good for the planet. Each of these cities, regions or countries has committed to protecting natural resources, people or heritage. From renewable energy, ESG financing to community-led projects and initiatives.
This might be through any number of initiatives, from investment in renewable energy to innovative community-led projects.
