Being Environmentally Conscious While Traveling Abroad May Help Save the Same Views for Other People

What A View

Many people dream of traveling the globe, exploring both the world around them and potentially themselves. Individuals may save up for ages to afford a dream vacation, decide to take a job that lets them travel or any number of ways to get where they dream of being. American Financial Benefits Center (AFBC), a document preparation service company, has helped thousands of borrowers apply for federal income-driven repayment programs that may have made the dream of traveling more accessible for its clients.

Traveling offers unique views and insights that may not be possible for people to experience otherwise, making traveling nearly invaluable. But if people aren’t environmentally conscious about actions made while traveling, certain experiences may wind up being ruined to the point that other people may no longer be able to experience them.

“Awareness of the potential consequences that actions can have on an environment may help preserve it for a more extended period of time,” said Sara Molina, manager at AFBC. “Sometimes the preventable actions are on a smaller scale. Remembering to always pack up trash brought in to a place is a great place to start."

Other ways to do one’s part in traveling respectfully may involve a bit more research. Part of the fun for many travelers is trying the different foods that otherwise might not be accessible. But as more people insist on having dishes that may consist of over-farmed ingredients, such as certain varieties of fish, that choice can leave a negative impact on the environment. Looking up beforehand what foods to avoid as to not increase the demand for that dish may be a start in the right direction.

Traveling to somewhere in the wrong way is also an issue. In the case of Venice, cruise ships coming and displacing sediment and water has brought about major problems for the city. The wooden structures that most buildings in Venice are built upon can last for centuries, as long as no air touches them that is. The vast amounts of displacement that cruise ships can cause add up to huge amounts of damage, especially when hundreds of ships come in through the waterways each year. Remedying this issue is a bit trickier than other environmentally respectful actions, but perhaps waiting to visit until Venice has completed construction of seawater barriers could be an option for some travelers.

Being environmentally conscious of actions while traveling may help make it so that other people can enjoy the sites and experiences all around the world if they choose to travel, too, but also keeps those areas safe for the locals. For some borrowers, AFBC has helped them apply for repayment programs that may have bettered their lives, but it is up to travelers to do their part to help keep the environment around them clean and safe. “Tourists can leave an area, almost regardless of what happened on a trip, and head back home. But for locals of the different places people dream of visiting, that is home and that should be respected,” said Molina.
