Responsible travel tips for a mindful and low waste travel

What is responsible travel and how can we travel more responsible?

What we can do in times of mass-tourism, over-tourism, plastic pollution, etc.?

We can change a few things in our own travel behavior.

While I still believe in the good things of travel, tourists are sometimes a big problem. 

  • Beach parties in front of resorts disturb wild life and mostly a lot of trash get’s left behind…
  • Cruise ships invade small island and harbor towns without leaving anything than polluted air and water..
  • recreational parks are getting harmed because some people leave trash on trails and leave trails to make the best instagram picture
  • geo tags and instagram hypes create mass tourist spots that can easily destroy the environment around it…
  • etc…

So let´s see what we can do to enjoy a more responsible travel/camping

  • avoid huge all-inclusive resorts
  • travel in low season
  • respect local rules
  • choose the less beaten path
  • stay on the trail when hiking (leave no trace)
  • travel low waste/single use plastic free
  • use natural soap and shampoo, laundry and dish washing soap
  • join clean-ups and volunteer programs
  • etc….
