Sustainable Travel is Proving More Important Than Ever Post Pandemic

Driven by consumer desires for new experiences, innovative technologies and environmental impacts – travel is changing. Host Sarah Dandashy explores the technologies and logistics that power travel and the brands that build unforgettable experiences.


Sustainable travel has a new energy around it, as most of the world rethinks what it means to be a citizen of the world. Kind Traveler is doing its part to advance sustainability and share kindness. Say Yes to Travel host Sarah Dandashy spoke with the company’s CEO and Co-Founder, Jessica Blotter.

Blotter had an interesting career path, beginning with teaching at-risk youth earth science, spending time with media startups, and writing about travel. She also spent time volunteering with animal rescues and doing her part to give back.

On a trip to Belize with her co-founder, Blotter witnessed poverty and hungry dogs. They decided to feed them, and others followed, and that was the beginning of Kind Traveler. “We unintentionally inspired others to spread kindness,” Blotter said.

“It’s an opportunity to create a paradigm shift and realize how decisions impact local communities and the future.” – Jessica Blotter

They launched the company in 2016 as a place where travelers could donate to a local charity and then unlock deals for “kind” hotels. “One hundred percent of the donation goes to the charity, and we quantify that on the site. Your $10 helps do this,” Blotter explained.

Blotter also discussed how the pandemic has made people more in tune with sustainable travel. “Sixty million people are on the brink of poverty. One in six in the U.S. faces food insecurity. It’s an opportunity to create a paradigm shift and realize how decisions impact local communities and the future.”

A sustainable future is a must for travel. Its biggest threat is the climate crisis, along with other factors. “Sustainable travel considers the environmental, community, and economic impact to the host location,” Blotter explained.

To address this, Kind Traveler focuses its lens of kindness on animal welfare, healthy communities, wellness, and environmental sustainability. The organization and its kind partners provide a new way to support the destinations that travelers dream of visiting—leaving a positive impact behind.
