The Truth About Us

After pursuing a career in hospitality I realized the importance of the environmental, economic, social and cultural impact in the tourism industry and how is negatively affecting our habitat, local cultures and communities. My experiences working in hotels that pay little to no attention to their environmental responsibilities made me think of a more sustainable way to travel.

  • 1 hotel guest can produce 1 kg of waste per day that accumulates to thousands of tonnes of waste annually.

  • 40% of the world's carbon emissions will be generated by the hospitality industry towards 2050.

This is why I created ''Sustainable Travel'', because I believe in a world where tourism plays a part in environmental and community well-being. Since it is one of the world's major industries, I think tourism has the power to lessen poverty, hunger, gender inequality and climate degradation in the most vulnerable regions.
