The sustainable travel movement is growing steadily across the world and watching it blossom is incredibly beautiful. Travel that positively impacts humans, animals and the planet. Isn’t that the way we should have always been traveling?
Platforms connecting travelers to resources focused on social and environmental impact in destinations around the world, are making it easy for travelers to choose responsible accommodation, restaurants and activities. Like Lokal Travel. But connecting travelers to products that won’t leave a stain on our environment is still a struggle. Basic toiletries, like sustainably made bamboo toothbrushes and straws, are easy to access but more handy products (like the ones that make all the difference to travelers!) are a little more difficult to access.
In 2014, approximately 41.8 million tons of e-waste was generated worldwide. The United States was responsible for 28% of this insane amount of electronic waste. And sadly, only about 15% of e-waste is actually recycled. According to a recent report by EPA, everyday we dispose of 416,000 mobile devices and 142,000 computers either by recycling, or trashing to the landfill.
We need to change our ways, especially when these products end up in landfills across the world we have no business adding to.
