🌳Happy Earth Day! 🌏

🌳Happy Earth Day! 🌏

Today we celebrate the earth, this beautiful planet we share, and I think we can all agree it’s pretty amazing.

How can you support the earth today?

  • Volunteer yourself and go pick up trash in your community for an hour or two
  • Consider your garbage volume and find ways to use less plastic
  • Turn off the extra lights throughout your house
  • Donate money to a reputable foundation that supports ecological improvement
  • Book a trip to someplace that needs you to show up physically and financially.

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.

Explore the earth. By choosing to travel we can bring change to the world not just economically but ecologically too.

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.

How Sustainability Became the Biggest Travel Trend

As told to Justin Paul December 10, 2019

Costas Christ on how sustainable travel has moved from nature-focused to nurturing us all.

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.

Compiled by The Editors of Virtuoso April 1, 2020

Boost your global citizenship cred and learn about saving the planet with these six sustainability documentaries.

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.
