What is sustainable tourism?
When we travel we often forget how important it is to respect the environment also on these occasions. If we neglect this aspect it is very likely that we will leave a mark in the city or in the country that we have known: sustainable tourism is the solution and in Aerobús we tell you how to put it into practice in the best way.
Sustainable tourism has as fundamental pillars to maximize the economic and social objectives of the place you are visiting and, especially, minimize the environmental impact of your visit. To really practice sustainable tourism, respect and improve the place you are visiting, take care of its nature and respect its inhabitants, which also includes that you do not doubt or disparage their customs and culture.
Realize that everything you do during your travel days will have an impact on its economy and its environment, so it is essential that you spend the necessary resources and minimize the production of waste.
Organize your trip with time
The best way to not spend unnecessary resources in a journey is that you organize with as long as possible. An example is on the subject of the drink: if you know that you are going to want water, bet on a reusable bottle instead of buying one that you will have to dispose of later.
Use public transportation
It is worth remembering that the best way to get around the city you visit is by public transport, either by bus or train. Another option that is increasingly widespread is that of the bicycle, as long as you do it properly and respecting the road rules.
Eat local food
Do not buy food prepared on large surfaces. Promote the local market! Go to the markets where you can get the fruit, vegetables and local products that characterize the country’s cuisine. With them you can cook one day in your accommodation to savor the best products and bet on the local economy.
Reduce your waste
Do not forget to leave everything as you find it, without leaving waste or garbage whose collection involves an expense in human and monetary resources. Avoid the consumption of packaged products, and with them plastics: the best option is to buy in local markets in bulk, with which we will also bet on quality products and that you will not be able to find anywhere else. Along the same lines, bet on technology to move around and look for information instead of using paper that, in all likelihood, will end up in the trash or on the ground.
Respect the customs, religion and lifestyle of the locals
Sustainable tourism also consists in respecting the culture and customs of the locals. Soak up their customs and learn in the best possible way.
The best destinations
Sustainable tourism proposes that you also pay attention to the places you select as your destination. Although not everyone is willing to spend a week in the midst of nature, some destinations invite it: choose destinations with low environmental impact. In Aerobús we love New Zealand, a country that has set out to curb mass tourism, or Iceland, one of the areas of the planet with more virgin and natural landscapes.
