The World Peace Pagoda sits 1100 meters above sea level and is measured at 115 feet tall – from the top, visitors are able to see the Annapurna Mountain Range which makes for a stunning backdrop. It's the perfect spot to relish in the natural beauty of Pokhara. #NepalNow

We were so excited to finally try @goodtravelsrilanka partner @cafekumbuk after hearing about how delicious it was! The Veggie Burger, Mexican Bowl, and Coffee Cacao Shake (drank it too fast to get a picture!) did not disappoint after our stressful drive into Colombo in our tuk tuk for the finish of the Tuk Tuk Tournament!⠀

Tai O is a fishing village on the western side of Lantau Island. Picturesque place where you can find houses made by structures on the sea, very cool!

There you can also try some delicious seafood 🦞or grab a boat to see dolphins in their natural habitat 🐬 #thisissustainable #HongKong #Taio #sustainability

My husband commented today about how Indians let cows do whatever they want: lie down in the middle of the road, eat their breakfast inside a temple courtyard...English is his second language, so he had never heard of the term “sacred cow.” I explained it’s based on cows being sacred to Hindus in India, and now means something that can be annoying and doesn’t always make sense, but people hold it so dear that people wouldn’t dare to criticize it. But then I couldn’t think of a good example! Please help me: what’s an example of a “sacred cow?” Bonus points if it’s within the topic of fashion.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Ps. We saw these cows right outside of Ahmenabad. They’re usually not here, but their traditional home is too dry this year, so their nomadic herders have brought them here.

Shopping while travelling from local vendors goes a longer way than purchasing from the same old MNCs.
Might seem like a small change in your travel style, but changes like these matter a lot in building the local communities.
Try it.
What other peculiar things like these do you think matter a lot?

Hello! I’ve gained a lot of new followers in the past few weeks. So a reintroduction is in order. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’m Alden. I’m a degree-holding journalist and blogger whose passion is for sustainability, especially in fashion. I founded EcoCult in 2013, two weeks before the Rana Plaza garment factory in Bangladesh collapsed. At the time I thought my role in this movement was to focus on telling readers about beautiful brands and what choices to make, to make sustainability look appealing and convince people to make the right choice. But my feelings have evolved, and now I’m more of an activist, systemic thinker, and truth-teller. I take pride in doing a lot of research and fact checking in order to find the truth about all the complexities (and controversies!) of fashion and it’s effects on the planet and people. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
That’s why after 4.5 years of writing about it from NYC, I decided I needed to go deeper. So my husband and I packed up and left NYC last December to work and travel around the world. I learned about artisanship in Central and South America, innovation and successful sustainable systems in Europe, and now I’m in India and then Bangladesh, Cambodia, and Vietnam to learn about the people who make our clothes. Along the way I have met so many of my followers, in practically every city, who have shown me so much warmth and hospitality. This year has been challenging, confounding, humbling, exciting, frustrating, uplifting and inspiring. I’m privileged and honored to have this opportunity and mindful of using it to improve the world of fashion, not just taking a vacation. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My goals are always to get you to think deeper, to teach you something new, give you the tools to make better choices, and spur you to action. If this sounds like something you would enjoy, you should know that my blog is better than my Instagram. And my freelance work is better than my blog. So sign up for the newsletters and ecocult.com and aldenwicker.com. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Thank you for following! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Vegan nibbles on a rooftop @nomadmarrakech 👌🏻

I can’t believe this was only a month ago when I was enjoying a delish vegan lunch with one of my best friends (who has since moved to Mexico!) - meanwhile I’ve started a new job back in NYC where I’ve also been looking for a new home (a straight-up nightmare). 😖

To say that I don’t get stressed out from time to time would be an understatement, but then I think back in moments like these I’ve been so lucky to experience - I’m reminded of how important staying balanced is - even though for me as of late it’s been a case of the extremes! 🙈

How do you stay balanced? ✌🏻

Meet the Fernweh team! Here we are visiting a local family right near the riverside eco-retreat where founder, Poonam, is going to be building a sustainable eco-village next year. Think permaculture farming, naturally built lodge huts and solar powered electricity. Yet another reason to come back to this beautiful place 🌎 @fernwehfairtravel 📷 @markfoxphoto

Carnival Royalty

Dominating St. Lucian carnival for years.... in 2018, Tribe of Twel’a Shakespearean theme locked in another win for the band’s King and Queen (pictured). Year after year, they bring a level of sophistication to the revelry of carnival by representing some facet of culture and history. .

Thank you @markfoxphoto for capturing this moment on tour with @fernwehfairtravel . Here in Gopeshwar we've visited a number of local villages and have truly been able to step into the shoes of another. Travel brings empathy to the surface because we step out of our own world's to gain an understanding of someone else's world, and I'm a firm believer in empathy as a force for good. If there were ever an image that captures how grounded I feel right now it would be this one. #liveyourtruth #empathy #changetheworld

This is the typical traditional breakfast in Guatemala: eggs scrambled, plantains, black beans, cheese, the best coffee you'll ever have, and as with any meal in Guatemala, tortillas! #visitguatemala

A successful clean drive with @fernwehfairtravel - we walked up the mountain of an increasingly popular trek, which unfortunately means more trash. So I joined Fernweh on a clean up drive the past two days to do our little bit for the Himalayan trails.

In our latest online offering, we're proud to showcase Traveling Outside the Lines: an exploration of diversity in the travel industry as it relates to advertising, marketing, influencers and destinations. We will examine this theme through personal examples as well as social media.⠀
.⠀
Core takeaways include:⠀
• Deliberate actions to take to understand inclusion⠀
• A process of “unlearning” that is required to change the narrative of travel destinations⠀
• Social media strategies for inclusion and diversity⠀
.⠀
This session is led by Jessica Nabongo, the founder of @thecatchmeifyoucan and @globaljetblack. Get the session at the link in our bio, under the shop tab. #thisissustainable

Kathmandu is a city to experience; amongst the sights, smells and sounds is the largest concentration of World Heritage sites for travelers to explore. Some of our favorites include the Kathmandu Durbar Square, Swayambhunath Temple and Boudhanath Stupa – what are yours?⠀

Currently ❤️ loving: ⠀
These sustainable products we got from @greenchoice_lanka ! The palm leaf plates and utensils are washable and reusable. Great for those nights we end up with Sri Lankan takeout wrapped in a banana leaf and no utensils are given! The bamboo toothbrush came in the nick of time because Carrie is always forgetting her toothbrush in hotels lately! Check out our latest blog post for more sustainable travel hacks!⠀

Did you know that Lake Atitlán was formed out of a massive volcanic crater? It's the deepest lake in all of Central America and is actually a mile above sea level. The stunning lake is home to numerous Mayan villages – "Atitlán" translates to "the place where the rainbow gets its colors" in the traditional Mayan language. #visitguatemala
