Keep Your Adventures Green!

When you explore the outdoors you often pass through some of the most beautiful and fragile habitats in the world. That’s why at Veggie Vagabonds, we think you should embrace your surroundings by turning life into an ethical adventure. 

This all starts by learning to appreciate your surroundings and make ethical decisions, no matter where you are. It can actually make your time outside more of an adventure!

By working together, small changes can make a huge difference and help protect these fantastic environments we all love to explore. 

On our Go Green section just some of the things you’ll find are…

  • Sustainable tips, green gear and waste reduction for your adventures
  • Flying alternatives and overland options 
  • Ethical issues, ideas and inspiration

Ditch the flights, choose the overland option!

One of the single biggest steps you can take towards a more sustainable lifestyle is to cut down on flying. That doesn’t mean you’ve got to stop exploring though. It’s more than possible to explore the whole world and not jump on a flight, so we set out to prove it.

In 2017 we committed to stop flying and are now embarking on a round-the-world bike trip. You can read more about this epic cycling adventure here, or check out some of our other overlanding articles below.
