Eco-minded, green travel focuses on conservation and sustainability with education and social consciousness as a backdrop. As a result, glamping is the perfect way to travel green.
Being green doesn’t have to mean giving up luxury. Many properties and destinations offer all the luxuries you want, while still being mindful and respectful of nature and their communities. As such, they have taken great precautions to minimize the physical, social, behavioral, and psychological impacts of being where they are.
As a traveler, adopt sustainable practices such as using cloth bags, reducing single use plastic, eating locally grown food, and using your trip to learn about the local flora and fauna.
