In this round-up, check out three of our favourite video templates from Envato Elements and Envato Market to help you create video that encourages your customers and followers to think about sustainable, evironmentally-friendly travel.
Slow Travel: Growing Demand for Sustainable Options
Travel seems cheaper and accessible to more people than ever before, but more and more people also now ask if the way we travel is environmentally responsible, and how to travel in more ecologically sound ways, big and small.
On the big end of scale, the world needs to square its carbon use with its carbon budget—we're using more fossil fuels we can safely use. However, until governments start making changes to significantly reduce emissions, we are left with each doing our part to set an example for those in power and create support for real reform. Travel is a big part of that equation.
Tourists have a big role to play. Try vacationing closer to home, and, particularly if you’re traveling within your own country, take public transport. Trains are usually a more eco-friendly form of travel, compared to cars and flying, and they’re a nicer way to see a bit more of the country to boot.
Businesses of all sizes can adopt flexible practices like remote work, car-pooling, or job sharing, and include benefits plans that support mass transit, like family bus passes or money off a bike. As with tourism, take the train or coach to domestic conferences rather than international flights.
There are more ways to think about travelling responsibly than just switching transport modes, too. Check out 12 Ways to Travel Responsibly That You Need to Know About.
