Promoting responsible travel for a sustainable future…

Our Planet Travel was started because, like many of you, I LOVE travelling – but I’m also passionate about protecting our environment… so the natural choice was to combine these two passions, and hence Our Planet Travel & Living blog and magazine was born!

I believe that any small steps we take in the right direction will make a difference – for us, for the environment, and for future generations.

You might be asking yourself, how do travel and protecting the environment co-exist in a happy reationship? Travel can be environmentally, socially, and financially sustainable – indeed many countries’ economies depend on it – the trick is to find the right travel products and make the best possible choices. That’s where Our Planet can help you.

I have spent a lot of time researching inspiring stories and companies, obtaining facts and data, and working with our partners to provide you with current eco information, stories, competitions, and beautiful images. Our Planet cover’s the experience categories of ecotourism, responsible and sustainable travel, indigenous tourism, and volunteer tourism (voluntourism) – as well as general sustainable lifestyle and eco tips and news.

Our Planet Travel & Living is also designed to be all-inclusive – so that companies with limited marketing budgets can participate and have a voice as well. I provide opportunities for all responsible travel or sustainable lifestyle businesses to promote their products to a worldwide audience. See the Advertise page to see how your company can participate.

I love working with like-minded companies – and welcome more companies to join us. Please Contact Us if you have any questions at all.

Go on… start your ‘green’ journey now!
