Trafalgar is encouraging the travel community as a whole to work towards a sustainable future. Leading up to the 49th Earth Day on April 22, Trafalgar is educating travel advisors on the JoinTrafalgar program’s three pillars of helping people, preserving places and wildlife.

To raise awareness in the trade community, Trafalgar is organizing an action and awareness campaign alongside brand partners including Craig Kielburger, co-founder of the charity ME to WE, releasing weekly content aimed at agent partners with actionable tips on how to live and travel more sustainably.

As part of this approach to Earth Month, Trafalgar will also release an advisor’s guide to 'Making a Difference on Earth Day'. This  guide is full of tips and small changes travel advisors and other customer-facing members of the industry can make that can have a big impact. By educating on the fundamentals of sustainable tourism, the company aims to empower advisors to act as ambassadors of responsible travel to their customers.

Additionally, the brand’s commitment to responsible travel is going far beyond the month of April. Examples of making a difference include the company banning single-use plastics (SUPs) in offices worldwide and the journey to be SUP-free on all Trafalgar trips by 2022. In addition, with the support of Trafalgar’s agent partners, the company reforested 150 acres of devastated forest land in Northern California and Tanzania through its e-documentation solution, planting one tree for each guest that travels paper free.
