An inspiring book and thankfully i am already doing some great things to make my own travel (when I can) more sustainable. Some great tips on volunteering and locating ethical projects around the world. The photography is of a high quality as well. Well researched and written from true travellers who care about our planet and still so much we need to learn. Layout is good and content just enough to whet your appetite to find out more. Thank you #NetGalley for the copy to review.
Sustainable Travel is a book that offers practical and achievable advice for those who wish to make a difference in the way that we experience the world. Tuppen is a sustainability expert who’s had over a decade of responsible travels, one being seeing the world without flying. Some things she includes in this book are embracing slow travel, reducing your carbon footprint, packing responsibly, and benefiting the people, culture, and places that you visit. I am passionate about sustainability and have learned a lot from this book. I've been finding new products throughout the years to reduce my waste and this book sheds a whole new light on things we should also be focusing on. Tuppen provides evidence with facts but she also provides alternative options to consider. When we decide to make changes in our lives to benefit the environment, we may think we have to give a lot of things up, but this isn't necessarily the case. I appreciate that Tuppen gives sound advice and provides numerous options that we can adapt into our lifestyle so it doesn't leave the reader feeling as though we have to make big sacrifices to enjoy things in life. Thank you to NetGalley and Quarto Publishing Group – White Lion for this eARC in exchange for my honest review.
