We're looking at sustainable travel at ground level. Earth Wanderess, Evelina Utterdahl, is back and this time Greg Hill joins us to discuss our earth-bound travel habits and how we can do better.⁠ It's time for us to begin to look for new ways to adventure that don’t contribute as many emissions. What is the reality of traveling sustainably, and is it realistic for everyone?

We're looking at sustainable travel at ground level. We're back with Earth Wanderess, Evelina Utterdahl, and this time Greg Hill to discuss our earth-bound travel habits and how we can do better.⁠ We dissect what it really means to be a sustainable traveler. 

For decades, nature has provided Greg the opportunity to adventure in the forest and mountains. But in recent years, he developed a sense of guilt about how he’s engaged with the nature that he loves. It's time for us to begin to look for new ways to adventure that don’t contribute as many emissions. What is the reality of traveling sustainably, and is it realistic for everyone?
