Our Directory of Sustainable hotels-Tours guarantees that any lodge or tour you choose from our directory is on the right path towards sustainability. We check them out before they are added.
There is a lot of “greenwashing”, pretending to be sustainably minded, going on. Many lodges make that claim but are anything but!
We are trying to counteract this. One way is our online eco rating, but we also communicate with lodges or tours about their practices. It’s not enough for a hotel-tour to say they are “eco”, we look deeper before we will list them on our directory.
We pride ourselves on our Online Eco Rating. We developed it in order to show just how sustainable a lodge is and combat greenwashing. It is based on a 1 to 5 rating system, where 5 is the best. Anything above a 2 is a good solid score that shows a lodge is concerned with sustainability and their policies and procedures back them up.
To see lodges that have taken the eco rating and scored 5 out of 5 go here: Perfect scores on our Online Eco Rating.
We support Non-Profits and NGO’s that are working in the same areas we are. Water conservation, energy conservation, waste disposal, community benefits, flora and fauna preservation. We have a soft spot for the wildlife. We post about those things on our Facebook page.
If you are working in conservation, please contact us. We are always looking for good blogs to post concerning sustainability.
