What part of tourism is the most damaging to the environment?



  1. 0 Votes

    It truly depends on how far a person is traveling, and what kind of trip they are taking. Flying around the world to Disneyland, where a tourist may eat with paper cups and napkins for weeks at a time, not to mention be around air-conditioning constantly, is very different than taking the train to a leave-no-trace camping vacation. In general, though, if a person isn’t dramatically increasing their daily energy consumption in the place that they are visiting compared to their energy use at home, the biggest difference would be the use of jet fuel to get there.
