20 Trips to Change Your World

earth.jpgIf you've watched T.V., pick up a newspaper, went to the movies, or read this blog, you know its no longer acceptable to be careless about the environment. It seems everywhere you turn, green is the subject of the conversation. So, it should come as no surprise that travel is changing as well.

In Travel + Leisure's "Green" November 2007 issue, writer Ann Armbruster explores 20 Trips to Change Your World. She helps readers realize that its possible to have a great vacation and save the planet. Whether its through voluntourism, educational tours or sustainable travel, travelers have a responsiblity to make a difference - albeit sometimes on the luxury level. Who says green can't be fun?

Here are a few of the notable "Trips to Change Your World". Note: not all volunteer vacations are free. In fact, quite the opposite. But, before you shrek at the prices, keep in mind, what you're doing is saving the world.

* New Orleans - Yes, Hurricane Katrina was years ago, but the damage still remains. Volunteers can spend five days building houses for low-income families. Habitat for Humanity; free, but accommodations vary.

* Antarctica - Take a 14-day cruise and assist scientists with global warming research. Abercrombie & Kent; $6,190 per person, plus an additional $500 donation.

* Track bottlenose dolphins and other mammals in the Bahamas while collecting conservation research. Bonus: 100% of the fee goes to Earthwatch. Earthwatch; $2,549.
