EcoAdventure Media: Promoting Sustainable Adventure Travel

Eco Adventure Media Sustainable Travel Group

Introducing EcoAdventure Media!

In an effort to help promote sustainable adventure travel around the world, I’ve joined forces with a group of very influential travel professionals.

The more I travel, the more I learn how important it is to do so in an environmentally responsible way. Our Earth is fragile, and travel can often be a destructive activity.

But the reality is we are not going to stop traveling. So what does that mean?

These days it’s critical to stay aware of our impact on the environment as we travel. Some of my most memorable experiences have been while visiting new landscapes, people, and animals around the world.

A few favorites include hiking through Corcovado in Costa Rica, tracking animals on safari in South Africa, and exploring Darien National Park in Panama.

But we need to minimize the damage we cause while engaging in these activities.

This is why EcoAdventure Media was created.

Sustainable Adventure Travel

Eco-Friendly Travel Inspiration

Let me ask you a question. How do you plan your vacations these days? Do you read travel blogs like mine for inspiration or research? The latest data shows that’s exactly what’s happening.

  • A Google study showed that over 80% of travelers use the internet for travel planning.
  • A United Nations study found that 33% of US travelers trust travel blogs for advice.

EcoAdventure Media was established because there is power in numbers. It’s a strong collaboration between travel bloggers, journalists, photographers, and social media experts.

Our mission is to increase awareness of sustainable adventure travel options and promote eco-tourism by working together with companies and destinations that have those same goals.

We want to inspire our readers to travel in an environmentally responsible way.

Our organization is made up of 13 different travel blogs that focus on a wide variety of topics. Together we cover adventure travel, ecotourism, cultural experiences, outdoor recreation, nature/wildlife, family vacations, and more.

I’m very excited to be a part of this group, and look forward to collaborating on new projects to promote eco-friendly adventure travel.

It’s a big world out there, with a lot to see. We need to protect it as best we can so future generations can enjoy exploring it just as much as we do.

    Well done for this new venture. We need people like you to promote Eco travel. Responsible travel is a major 21st century stake. Everyone can now travel and sometimes trying to push some prices too far down (as we could see when we did our trek in the Huyahuash cordillera in Peru) is just making it worst for both the site we visit and the locals that are living from tourism.

    I commend you for your success! This is great news! Panama has the Smithsonian protecting some of our precious rainforest. I know they would be willing to embrace some of this amazing work. Keep up the good work, Matthew! :)

    How cool! It’s inevitable that we’re going to have an impact while we travel – on the culture and the environment – so it’s super important that we do everything to make sure that’s a positive one. Looking forward to your collaborations and eco-friendly travel inspiration in the future!

    It is so important to increase awareness of eco tourism. In the past few years I have witnessed horrible transformations of unspoiled paradises that could have done with a good dose of eco tourism instead. Cambodia suffers greatly from tourism-based development gone wrong – communities are evicted so that developers can build casinos or hotels. Good on you for promoting eco toursim!

      If we all demand more eco-friendly destinations & activities, I’m hopeful that things will eventually get better all over the world.

    Travel blogs like this are definitely going to be a big help in spreading info on sustainable travel. I think right now is an important time for that kind of thing too. 50 years from now, our transportation structure is likely to be wildly different, and fuel cells will have to be from renewable resources or we’ll simply lose the ability to travel long distances, so that commitment has to begin now.
