Responsible Travel & Environment

As a responsible traveler it is expected from you to be as kind and considerate to the environment as possible. Many tourist spots around the world have been depleted ecologically due to a large influx of visitors. It is your bounden duty as a traveler to save the fragile environment for posterity. A little responsibility and common sense on the part of travelers can make positive impact on the local environment.

Things You Must Keep in Mind
  • " While going for activities like hiking you must try to keep erosion to a minimum.
  • " While admiring the natural view and scenery, you must take care not to trample the native flora under your feet. It takes them years to regenerate after being crushed.
  • " As a responsible traveler you are expected to keep a strong water bottle rather than buying bottled water frequently. Plastic bottles do a lot of damage to the fragile environment.
  • " You must consider the sensibilities of the local people while bathing or swimming regarding your dress and also that you are using their water. It is advisable that you bathe downstream from water collection points and avoid using soaps in fresh waterways.
  • " While on a wildlife watching tour/holiday you must ensure to keep yourself at a distance, which helps you to see the animals' natural, often odd, behavior in a comfortable way.
  • " As an informed and responsible traveler you must avoid buying souvenirs made from wild animal products. In most of the places it is illegal and by buying those products, you are supporting poaching practices. In case of wooden products also, the same principle applies.
It has to be borne in mind that responsible travel/tourism will go a long way in protecting the environment for posterity and lead to a sustainable tourism.
