We all want to protect our planet and travel responsibly – but how many of us are really that serious about sustainable stays?
Writer Holly Tuppen is and to back up her claims, she has written ‘Sustainable Travel – The essential guide to positive impact adventures’ to clearly set out her case and back up what she has been trying to tell people for the last 10 years.
Holly knows her onions, her work as editor of The Green Hotelier and communications manager for the International Tourism means she has the knowledge, and her book is designed to get us all thinking on how we can travel more responsibly and with a positive impact.
The book is divided into chapters on how we can make a difference by reducing our carbon footprint, support local communities and safeguard culture, as well as protecting wildlife and restoring ecosystems.
The pandemic has encouraged us to appreciate what is close to home and when we do venture further, to make sure our trip counts, by making the most of what we see and do.
The book also has a guide to the world’s best regenerative travel experiences, with recommended ecotours, community tourism initiatives, responsible destinations and green places to stay. The latter is particularly handy if you are planning a trip to a country you haven’t explored before and gives tips on what do and where to stay and nearby eco-friendly projects, such as recycling plants.
Holly gives tips on choosing the right place to stay, how to get there and even tips on the most sustainable way to pack your suitcase!
To put her money where her mouth is, Holly has since 2008, circumnavigated the world without flying and her adventures are well publicised, from being chased by whales across The Atlantic to eco luxury in The Maldives.
Her commitment proves you don’t need to skimp on luxuries or visiting your favourite place, with a little thought and forward planning, you can travel and make a difference too.
