Travel+Leisure India & South Asia Collaborates with Hyundai to Launch ‘Road to Sustainability’ Series

Following the release of the Hyundai KONA Electric, Hyundai would like to emphasize the goal of this new electric vehicle, which was to encourage people to go electric while also promoting sustainability through the 'Road to Sustainability' series.

In response to the client challenge, Travel + Leisure India & South Asia, in collaboration with Hyundai KONA Electric, brought Road to Sustainability, a three-part sustainable living series with thought leaders from the fields of travel, food, and lifestyle.

'Road to Sustainability' series featured travel content creators Rony & Barty, chef Thomas Zacharias, and fashion designer Kriti Tula who gave an overview and shared inspiring stories about three different aspects of sustainability along the journey with Hyundai KONA Electric.

The chosen personalities identified with the campaign's goal of promoting sustainability. Rohan Thakur and Bharti Bahrani, also known as "Ronnie & Barty," are two renowned travel vloggers who promote sustainable travel. Chef Zacharias' culinary journey began at a young age in his native Kerala, India, inspired by his grandmother's home-cooked food, with a focus on sustainable food production. Kriti Tula, the founder of Doodlage, is a fashion designer who produces sustainable clothes upcycled from garment industry waste.
