Ethical Travel 2016Jeff Greenwald, founder of Ethical Traveler, invites us to Ethical Traveler’s annual “Best Ethical Destinations” awards event. It’s happening Sunday, March 6th, from 7-9 p.m. at the wonderful Book Passage in Corte Madera. Join (it’s free!) in celebrating this year’s 10 winning countries. Schmooze with ambassadors, browse the bookstore, and drink good wine!

Jeff says: “During the past decade we have watched travel grow into the world’s largest industry, with a trillion-dollar annual footprint. This means that travelers possess more than curiosity; we have enormous power. Where we choose to put our footprints has economic and political reverberations that reach far beyond our personal experience. Ethical Traveler believes that mindful travel offers many rewards, both personal and global. By “voting with our wings”—choosing our destinations well, and cultivating our roles as citizen diplomats—we promote international goodwill and help change the world for the better.

“Every year, Ethical Traveler reviews the policies and practices of hundreds of nations in the developing world. We then select the ten that are doing the most impressive job of promoting human rights, preserving the environment and supporting social welfare—all while creating a lively, community-based tourism industry. By visiting these countries, we can use our economic leverage to reward good works and support best practices.

“We urge you to explore these destinations, and to enjoy the wonderful sights, scenic and cultural, that they have to offer.”
