The Origin Story
Because there is no Planet B
Imagine if each of the 1.4 billion annual travelers made just one positive change…
The journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step
Each year, 1.4 billion of us wanderlust warriors are traveling around this globe we call home. That equals great power: to leave less waste, to create and share good habits, to support the cultures and communities we’ve come to experience and, where we can, to leave each place just a little better than we found it. We’ve put together an awesome collection of gear and great info to help you do just that.
Won’t it be extraordinary when this is the ordinary? Welcome aboard!
Bring gear that makes you good to-go and skip single-use plastics.
Don't buy items made of animal parts or engage in close-contact activities.
Travel slower on trains and buses. Book direct flights when you can.
Support the culture and heritage you have come to experience.
You’re in the driver’s seat! Our master guide helps you navigate the road to responsible traveling. Let your journey begin here.
Every dollar you spend casts a vote for the world you want to live in. And while there are lots of ways to travel, there's only one Earth. So leave the legwork to us and be confident you're making one or more of these better choices:
Shopping sustainable is shopping local. Boost our economy and reduce carbon footprint.
Run with the brands going the extra mile, from sustainable "B Corp" status to other major efforts.
Get the warm-and-fuzzies with a give-back element or support of the makers and artisans.
Without a warning label. Avoid the extra chemicals for your body and for Mother Earth.
Save it from getting trashed and help us build consumer demand for recycling.
No landfill gravestones here. Biodegradable or largely recyclable in perpetuity.
For materials and packaging. When recycled, plastic loses quality—not so for glass and metals.
