#TTOT Shout Outs! Topic: Sustainable Travel

| April 3, 2012

A wise frog once said that it’s not easy being green, but it’s a mantra the #TTOT community tries to live by as they explore this wide and wonderful world. This week, the Travel Talk on Twitter trenders discussed how to implement a little sustainability into their Earthly exploits, weighing up the advantages of walking over wings, backpacking over boats and donkeys over driving! Ever one to champion wind power, here are My Destination’s seriously shiny Shout Outs for this week’s top tweeters…    

The questions this week were:

Q1. What does sustainable travel mean to you?

Q2. What’s the most unique sustainable mode of transport you’ve used?

Q3. Why do you think sustainable travel is so important to the travel industry?

Q4. What are the major challenges for sustainable travel?

Q5. Basic ways we can support sustainable travel?

About the Author ()

Once upon a time in New Zealand, a very large, very loud, hissing cockroach landed on Hannah’s head. In Florida, she mistook a jellyfish for a plastic bag and was promptly stung. In Newquay, a penguin with murderous intent tried to eat her shoe. Despite all this, Hannah can’t be kept away from touching things that she probably shouldn’t in foreign countries. This is probably a misguided attempt at experiential learning. She has lived in Cornwall most of her life and is still trying to adjust to the time difference in London, despite having moved there many months ago. When she grows up she wants to be a Mexican Luchador.
