We encourage you to use the following checklist, developed by TreadRight, to become a more responsible traveler.
1. DO YOUR RESEARCH
Choose companies that have a commitment to responsible travel and to minimizing the footprint of their offices and operations
The Travel Corporation’s 5-year sustainability strategy How We Tread Right addresses our collective impact on our planet, its people and wildlife through 11 goals tied to the UN Global Goals. Learn how you can get involved.
Request your travel documents be sent to you electronically rather than printed and mailed to reduce paper waste
Consider travelling during shoulder seasons, or to less popular areas
Fly direct; take-off and landing are the most fuel intensive portions of the flight
Consider airlines that are investing in sustainable aviation fuels
2. BE PREPARED
Pack reusables such as a water bottle or personal water filter and reusable shopping bag
Bring toiletries in reusable bottles
Pack light; the heavier the plane, the more greenhouse gases it emits
Learn local greetings and customs before you go!
3. TREAD RIGHT WHILE TRAVELING
Refuse single-use plastic and recycle when this cannot be avoided
Shop and eat locally to support the community
Purchase locally made souvenirs and pay a fair price
Avoid any purchase of wildlife products such as ivory
