Travel has become a very popular goal in life, with the promise of exploring the world's stunning horizons while simultaneously broadening your own. According to the World Bank, an estimated 1.2 billion people travel per year, which is roughly 15% of the population. The statistic speaks volumes about human progress, but it's also quickly becoming a huge detriment to culture, economy, and the environment around the world.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have also noticed this problem, according to an Instagram post from their official account, and they've decided to do something about it. They've launched Travalyst, a global initiative that they say "aims to make travel more sustainable, to help protect destinations and benefit communities long into the future, and to enable consumers to make more environmental friendly choices whilst traveling."
