    Whatever you are carrying out inside your destination of preference, kayaking, trekking, volunteering, paragliding or simply just going out and sightseeing; There are many things that we all can do today to avoid causing offence or harming the planet. Remember, your actions count. Listed below are up top tips to help you an even more ethical traveler!!

    • Understand and respect local cultures, traditions and holy places. You would be mortified to think you had offended anyone when you arrive so it’s worth knowing many of the local cultures. For example in Nepal, it can be rude to shake hands, exchange money or eat making use of your left (because your dirty hand), it’s also frowned upon to touch children at the top of their heads and you will always take off your shoes before entering a monastery.

    • Buy locally – In order to purchase your own food or find some good snacks, get out of the big western supermarket and purchase right out the market. It’s the same produce and you will be helping smaller businesses survive. You may most likely get a better price and you have the fun of wandering throughout the markets and meeting locals.

    • Ditch the plastic- Many countries do not have recycling facilities if your drinking 3 litres every day for two main weeks which is a whopping 84 bottles that will find themselves in a landfill somewhere. Bring (or buy) a refillable water bottle and utilize it whenever possible. In Nepal, many shops have clean mineral water accessible coming from a jar for only 10 rupees a litre (half the price of buying a plastic bottle)

    • Ask prior to taking a photo- Not unusual curtsey. You wouldn’t like someone choosing a photo people carrying out your mood to day business, so ask. They could agree they may decline. When they do refuse, say thank you and vanish. Most people don’t mind. However it is always nice must first.

    • Carefully think about the souvenirs you buy- Ensure the belongings you buy have a legal and documented history and they aren’t stolen and therefore are safe to become exported. It’s also wise to make sure you are not supporting activities that damage the planet or are due to criminality. Be certain that you’re not investing in a souvenir produced from ivory, endangered hard woods, ancient artefacts or endangered animals.

    • Respect the environment- Our primary goal is to ‘leave no trace’. Once your trekking, stick to the paths, don’t pick any flowers or damage any trees. If your hiking, consider carefully where you will put your campfire in support of use drift wood in order not to encourage de-forestation.

    • Go with a Responsible Local travel agency – When organising your journey, be sure to book your tour, package or activity with a responsible local travel agency.

    • Practice a little language and get involved! – Focus on ‘hello’ and ‘thank you’. In Nepali ‘Namaste’ and ‘Dhanybhad’. It can make an enormous amount of difference and people really regards.
