Is Responsible Travelling Even Possible?
The correct answer is probably YES and NO. The moment we set foot into a plane we have somewhat stepped out of the idea of “green traveling” and the the ecological footprint of a long-haul flight alone, is substantial as everyone knows by now.
It is not realistic to expect people to stop traveling, or to hope the tourism industry will not develop further and expand.
But, there is still lots we can do when we travel, particularly when we travel to destinations like Bali, where a large part of nature (& culture) is still intact and at the same time also at risk. As a visitor to Bali there are 4 main topics where we can contribute, and take more “sustainable choices”.
- protect environment
- support culture & traditions
- support local & small businesses
- donate to or support local NGOs
Small choices can have a big impact particularly when many travellers join in. Are you ready to help us to keep Bali a bit more clean and green?
