Are you an active traveler or a passive observer? We can all hope for positive changes to our environment, but at the end of the day it all comes down to taking control of our choices and standing up for what we believe in. To us, Sustainable Travel starts with being aware of how our adventures affect our surroundings. We want to build on this awareness by learning from you in this week’s chat!
