Om boka

Sustainable Travel offers practical and achievable advice for those who want to make a difference in the way we experience the world.

Having travelled around the world without flying, sustainability expert Holly Tuppen knows a thing or two about low-carbon and positive-impact adventures. Here, she shares what she's learnt from over a decade of responsible travels. Sustainable Travel will help your trip to be a force for good with information on how to:

* Ask tour operators and accommodations the right questions
* Reduce your carbon footprint
* Embrace slow travel
* Pack responsibly
* Benefit the people, cultures and places you visit

Also included is a guide to regenerative travel experiences, including conservation-minded tours, community-led initiatives, alternative adventures, responsible destinations and green places to stay. A series of interviews feature the experts and unsung heroes of sustainable travel.

With so many of us looking to travel in a more sustainable way, but not sure how to go about it, this comprehensive guide reveals everything you need to know. It's a must read for anyone looking to tackle the climate crisis and support nature and people while travelling.

15p from the sale of each copy of the English language editions of this book will be donated to the World Land Trust, an international conservation charity that has funded the protection of over 5 000 000 acres of landscapes.
