How do you envision our world in 50 years? Our efforts in sustainability as an organization reflect our commitment to the idea that our children and grandchildren will have a wonderful natural environment to explore throughout their lives. Our role as a company is to ensure that we’re giving back more to the communities and the natural surroundings that we help you to visit than what is being taken away in our travels. Preserving cultural heritage and conserving and replenishing the natural environment, while improving the lives of local people, is the essence of our way of travelling and is integrated into every decision and action we take at G Adventures.
Stay on the trail: Straying from the trail while hiking can cause erosion and other environmentally harmful impacts.
Respect the wildlife: View animals from a safe distance without affecting their natural behaviour. Touching, feeding, or harassing animals to get a photo is considered unethical travel.
Respect endangered species: Do not buy products that exploit wildlife, aid in habitat destruction, or come from endangered species.
Do not litter: Even if you see a local person littering, set an example and dispose of your garbage appropriately.
Reduce waste: Recycling is extremely limited or non-existent in most developing countries. Avoid products with excess packaging; opt for beverages in glass bottles as they tend to be re-used. Try not to use plastic bags and consider bringing along rechargeable batteries.
