Nearly 30% of food served on cruise ships is wasted. But not on Lindblad ships.

This summer, I took a trip aboard Lindblad Expeditions’ National Geographic Resolution to explore the ways in which the company is working to make ecotourism more sustainable. While traveling up and down the western coast of Iceland, I learned about the ways that food is sourced, served and disposed of on a 138 passenger Lindblad ship. While a completely sustainable cruise experience might still be out of reach for the largest of these ships, responsibility is always scalable.
