Being a responsible traveller is made easier by being an Australian. My government is very strict on what it allows in–no animal products, no wood, no seeds, no straw, no foodstuffs unless in unopened containers and then not if in water, or other local products, no antiques, unless you have written documentation stating the provenance of the goods or that the items have been treated.

I mostly travel alone, interacting with locals, but if I do pay for a tour I use only soft-on-the-ground companies (mostly Australia’s Intrepid) who use local guides, support local communities, and have a foundation assisting communities in 3rd world countries, whereby every dollar donated is mateched. I also subscribe to Tourism Concern, which is an organisation for ethical travel, free of exploitation of man or beast.
