Conscious Traveler • How can we positively impact the places we visit, be givers and not just takers? Maybe it’s purchasing a souvenir by a local artisan instead of a mass-made object, or buying offsets for your flight, or volunteering an hour of your time on your next trip. As we emerge from the pandemic, our travel decisions will have more weight than ever—meaning the time to raise our consciousness is now.
