Happy Earth Day. 💚 In 1970, the year #EarthDay was first celebrated, interest in the state of the planet---and the very notion of expressing concern over it---was still in its nascent stages. The introduction of Earth Day helped spur progress, including the establishment of the Environmental Protection Agency and the passing of the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, and the Endangered Species Act. But a lot has changed in the five decades since that first celebration---both in the overall health of the Earth and in the way we care for it. While the growth of the industries that enable tourism, like air travel, means that more people than ever are seeing the world (and increasing tolerance and awareness of other cultures while using tourism dollars to provide a much-needed boost to other economies), there are inevitable consequences for the planet. But a movement has taken root in recent years that focuses on the intersection of sustainability and tourism---driven by our desire to protect the planet even as we see it. At the link in bio, read about all the ways travel has evolved in the 50 years since the first Earth Day. 📷: @levartravel.pt
