Local Transport – We use local public transport wherever we can to reduce fuel usage per passenger.
Local Food and Local Goods – We endeavour to include and strongly encourage our travellers to eat locally produced food and goods. This reduces the ’embodied energy’.
Water Bottles – We encourage our passengers to refill a water bottle from water ‘bubblers’ where available to avoid unnecessary purchasing of bottled water and the subsequent waste disposal issues.
Economic Empowerment – Economic empowerment of local communities through tourism can help improve education and health services, water supplies and sanitation and reduce dependence on non-sustainable livelihoods.
Local Employment – We use local leaders and guides so that we learn about the culture and way of life directly from those who live it and put money into local hands and economies. We can particularly learn from indigenous rural communities about their relationship to the land and how they’ve practiced sustainable agriculture for centuries.
