Support Companies that Support Our Earth

There are many companies that actively work to minimize their environmental impact while supporting causes such as animal conservation and local indigenous communities.  I have a list, so let's talk.

Never, Ever Ride an Elephant

Do your part as a responsible traveler.  Those cute elephants that give rides have been cruelly trained and beaten into submission.  Most people don't know---but, now you do.

Reef-Safe Sunscreen

Google "The Truth About Reef-Safe Sunscreen"  2-7-19 Consumer Reports for more information.  Briefly, wear sun protective clothing and choose oxybenzone-free sunscreen.

Re-Usable Drinking Bottles

You can purchase bottles that have built-in filters and avoid buying water bottles.  I also like foldable "Vapur" brand bottles (pictured).  No filter, but great in cities like Rome that have abundant, clean water from public fountains.
