With growing public awareness about the importance of responsible and sustainable travel, people seem less concerned about insulating themselves from the problems of the destinations they visit, and more interested in contributing positively to the local environment and communities. 

In this collection, we talk to the people behind some of the best ethical tours out there, experiences that are changing the way we travel and interact with new places. Plus, we chat to Justin Francis, from Responsible Travel, about the main challenges facing travel — from overtourism to plastic pollution — and what we can all do to help.
