Welcome to Footprints and Photos! I’m Kaylee and I’m a qualified environmental advisor and global travel addict committed to environmentally and socially responsible travel. I’ve created Footprints and Photos to help my fellow responsible travellers make the right choice when on the move. Want to know more about me? Head over to my About Me page.

WHAT IS SUSTAINABLE TRAVEL?
Sustainable travel is about making choices on the road that minimize the negative social, environmental and economic impacts of your visit. Below is a simple guide to sustainable travel.
Avoiding the exploitation of animals
Buying locally produced food
Minimising waste (reduce, reuse, recycle)
Being mindful of limited resources, including water and energy
Choosing public transport where available
Staying in locally owned accommodation
Carbon offsetting those unavoidable long-haul flights
To help with making the green choice, I have created the Footprint Scale. Look for these footprint icons at the end of my articles to help you make your choices or head here for more info.
