THE BEST Sustainable TRAVEL BLOGS

Well, this year is off to a great start! I am thrilled to learn that my work on Inside the Travel Lab is nominated for the prestigious Trav Media Influencer of the Year Award for 2022. Genuinely, thrilled!

But it got me thinking. After more than a decade in the business, I still haven't published my list of the best sustainable travel blogs around. And while sustainability is part and parcel of who we are and what we do here, it's a big old world with plenty more to learn. 

So, do check out our articles on responsible tourism  and mull over how our travel habits can have a positive impact on the planet and local communities. But also, enjoy these other talented sustainable travel bloggers with this list of the best eco-friendly travel blogs.

The Top Eco-Friendly TRAVEL BLOGS

Green Global Travel Blog Logo - Best Sustainable Travel Blogs

Green Global Travel

'“Saving the world, one story at a time,” seems like an outlandishly ambitious goal for a travel blog,' wrote Mary and Bret on Green Global Travel.

"But when we began planning Green Global Travel in the jungle of Costa Rica’s Tortuguero National Park in 2010, we knew we wanted to focus on spreading the sustainable philosophies of ecotourism and conservation."

Pioneered by Mary and Bret, Green Global Travel has been the mighty battleship of sustainable travel blogs for at least a decade.

Juliet Kinsman Conde Nast Sustainable Travel Column

Conde Nast Traveller - Juliet Kinsman

We can get into a debate about whether the work from Condé Nast Traveller's Juliet Kinsman qualifies as a blog or more of a regular column from a traditional media outlet if we like... But that would be a big waste of energy. 

Kinsman tackles every day travel conundrums hand in hand with the challenge of climate change and the double edged sword that is the travel industry. 

What is sustainable travel anyway?

What is the difference between green travel and eco travel? Sustainable travel and environmentally friendly travel? Responsible travel and slow travel? Is everything about the environment or do people matter as well? What about carbon footprints and saving the whale?

 Here's your guide to what sustainable travel means.

Geotraveler's Niche

Lola Akinmade's Geotraveler's Niche isn't your typical sustainable travel blog (whatever that means.) Akinmade is a powerhouse: an author, photographer, journalist and blogger. But at the heart of her work is her interest in and focus on people, the very heart of sustainable travel.

  • Hey Chris, it’s certainly an interesting idea. And very useful for some situations (mainly weeding out bloggers who have one or two viral posts that aren’t really related much to their work.) Of course, it’s not only eyeballs that destinations and businesses need to worry about, it’s eyeballs AND a targeted audience in the right frame of mind. I’ve just had a quick glance at your site and you do seem to tackle the strengths and weaknesses of the approach (we both know that nothing’s perfect!) So, when I get a chance, I’m going to delve into this a little more. Really interesting work. Thank you.

  • I’m planing my next family vacation and this list is very helpful. Thank you
