In Defense Of Staycations Sustainable Minimalists

    • Home & Garden

Have a summer trip planned? You're not alone. For many, traveling has become more lifestyle than luxury: in the time it takes you to read this blurb over 2,000 people will have arrived in a foreign country and a quarter of a million dollars will have been spent by Americans abroad.

Staycations are emerging in popularity as a hassle-free and environmentally friendly way to holiday. And if you need more convincing, today's conversation with podcaster Chris Christou outlines why being a better tourist starts at home. 


Here's a preview:

[8:00] Connections between the tourism industry and late stage capitalism

[10:45] Eco-tourism is an oxymoron! (And other greenwashing examples)

[24:00] Airbnb’s cultural consequences

[31:00] 3 research-backed tips for making the most of your next staycation
