5 Tips to be a Responsible Traveller
Responsible Business Travel isn’t difficult to achieve. With a little conscious thought and preparation, you can ensure that you have a productive trip while having only a positive impact on the destinations that you visit.
1. Conserve Water
Much of the world suffers from a shortage of clean water so we can help by reusing hotel towels, taking short showers and turning off the tap!
2. Reduce Your Waste
Ditch the plastic bag, refuse unnecessary packaging, dispose of your waste responsibly and pick up rubbish too! Recycle as much as possible.
3. Go Local
Enjoy locally owned and operated restaurants and bars. Shop in the local markets and stores and utilise the expertise of local guides when booking tours or activities.
4. Care About Wildlife
Have a ‘look but don’t touch’ approach to wildlife and avoid any attractions that involve ‘performance’, riding or closely engaging with wild animals. As a rule, any activity that an animal would not do in the wild is the result of exploitation.
5. Respect Local Culture
Along with obeying local laws, this relates to dressing and behaving in an appropriate manner, learn about the people’s way of life. Ensure that interactions with locals, including children, is respectful and appropriate.
