From The Evolved Traveler and Wander Magazine: Bamboo
Asian cultures believe bamboo’s deep roots denote determination, the straight stem represents honorability, its hollow interior modesty, and its simple, smooth exterior typifies morality. It is often associated with harmony and balance as well. Given these ideological attributes, we believe bamboo is a perfect metaphor for travel – ethical travel.
Welcome to Bamboo – a new magazine for and about ethical and responsible travel.
Our root is the foundation of our beliefs and motivation to inform our readers on all aspects of ethical and responsible travel such as Sustainable Tourism, ecotourism, over-tourism, and the ethical treatment of people, places, cultures, and animals.
Published quarterly, Bamboo is built around three content pillars: Responsible, Sustainable and Conscious Tourism. Our goal is to inform and motivate readers to become conscious consumers with a heightened global perspective that are inspired to move beyond Bamboo and engage with our partners.
Here are a just few examples of themes you will be seeing in Bamboo:
Tourism: The Growing Force for Good | Tourism's Softer Footprints
Sustainability: Practices and Guidelines | Helping to Conserve Natural and Cultural Heritage
Ecotourism: The Everchanging Landscape | A "Benefit-to-All" Approach
Responsible Travel: Before & After Our Journeys | The Mindfulness of Cultural Sensitives
Sustainability and The Sea | Ethical and Conscious Immersion
Tourism and a New Approach to Ethical | Treatment of Animals
Carbon-offset and Carbon Neutrality: How easy it is!
Be a leader in Tourism
Only 16% of the world’s population travels, or can travel, for the purpose of tourism. That in-and-of-itself makes traveling, as tourist, a privilege. That privilege undeniably comes with responsibility, a simple one – to create a positive and lasting impact wherever we go. Discover with Bamboo the possibilities of doing just that!
