Traveling cannot really be considered an “eco” activity because it’s definitely harder on our world than staying at home sweet home. But, I personally take great pleasure from getting out and experiencing the world, and learning what else is going on outside of my bubble.
For me, a vacation away is a much needed break from my everyday routine (and my desk). It lends me unstructured time with my family, it is a time of adventure and sleep, sunshine in the winter months, a refreshing opportunity to experience other places in our great world, find new inspiration, and if I’m lucky, hopefully even inspire someone or something along my journey.
But after acknowledging that it is an indulgence, and adds weight to my grand efforts at living lightly, I make sure that my conscious habits travel with me too.
Before you take-off with your family, consider these tips, tricks, and must-have travel products to keep your time away as eco-happy as possible in this guide that my team and I are proud to have curated, designed and written, Your Guide to Traveling Consciously.
