🌳Happy Earth Day! 🌏
Today we celebrate the earth, this beautiful planet we share, and I think we can all agree it’s pretty amazing.
I realize the last one might seem the odd one out. We must remember that not all the world can afford to do things in the best most sustainable way. Taking our finances to these countries helps them move the needle in the right direction, particularly by supporting companies investing in the local eco-infrastructure.
Travel supports the rebuilding of communities suffering from global events be it pandemics, famines, wars, or natural disasters. Culture, economy, and ecology are interwoven. We must come to a better understanding of their best connection to make wiser choices about the future.
As told to Justin Paul December 10, 2019
Sustainability is undeniably one of the most, if not the most, important transformations happening in travel today. Decades ago, conversations about “sustainable tourism” revolved almost entirely around nature-based travel – primarily African safari lodges and camps, along with a handful of small tour operators. From there, it spread to the Americas, in particular, Costa Rica and Belize.

We’ve developed a strong relationship with our online streaming services lately. While there’s nothing wrong with diving into a little Tiger King and Ozark (guilty as charged), it’s worth noting that these platforms are full of knowledgeable, eye-opening, and inspiring sustainability content as well. We asked a few of our travel-industry friends to recommend their favorite sustainability documentaries – here’s what they love about each, how they relate to sustainable tourism, and where you can stream them.
