You’ve probably heard the news that we’ve been certified as a B Corp, something we’re incredibly proud of. We believe in supporting and spreading the word about this community of B Corps who use profits and growth as a means to a greater end: positive impact for their employees, communities, and the environment.
Today, we want to shine the spotlight on Travel by B Corp, an exciting new collaboration between B Corp certified independent travel companies who offer an incredible variety of responsible travel experiences. Their goal is to make it easier for UK consumers to make good choices when looking for a responsible travel company. Now who doesn’t love that!
Travel offers us amazing experiences, but what about the communities that we visit? There is a better way to discover the world, it’s habitats and cultures. Travel can be a force for good. By simply taking more care over our choices, where we go and how we get there, we can make a positive impact. This benefits the destination, people and the planet. We know it’s hard to know how to know how holiday decisions impact sustainability. That’s why we’re shining the spotlight on these travel companies who take the guess work out of it.
