Ensuring that we continuously add to the local economy, everything from our website design to the ‘on the ground’ operations, is done in a way that works with and for the local community by supporting Cornish companies.
All of our programmes have a stringent no single use plastic policy. In addition to this, we opt to only work with suppliers who also have the same environmental values.
If we can walk there, we will! It’s as simple as that!
With 12 separate areas within Cornwall recognised as Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, we regularly feature wildlife and nature workshops that create opportunities for education and awareness of the environment around us.
We invite and welcome local organisations and trusts to come and talk with our guests at our workshops and during our experiences. We continually promote awareness and support for these, through our social media channels.
Taking care of our planet is high up on our priority list. Whether we, personally, attend a local beach clean or incorporate it into a day's experience for you to get stuck into, we aim to do our part whenever we can and spread awareness to you all.
We pride ourselves on hosting small groups, not overwhelming any areas or places we visit with crowds and making sure we leave a positive social impact as we leave.
We want to encourage people to travel to Cornwall via train. Reducing the amount of vehicles that visit the county, especially in the summer months, will drastically reduce pollution, the navigability of our small roads and reduce overcrowding on local services offered … i.e. local car parks!
Using local guides, guest speakers and reps ensures that we are providing local employment for Cornish folk. Not only that, but it adds to the enrichment of your experience, knowing that you have all that knowledge at your disposal!
We don’t believe in keeping trade secrets, we continuously want to share our knowledge on sustainability and how to achieve it. Two heads are better than one as the saying goes…
Creating memorable experiences through ethical and sustainable travel.
Not only do we promote sustainability through partnering with local companies and initiatives - we make sure that every trip leaves a positive impact on all involved. Whether it be ensuring that there is no single use plastic, reduced carbon footprints, always promoting Cornish services or working with charities and nonprofits to make our planet more green - we believe that incorporating all these into our ethos makes for happy campers all round. We want you to live and breathe the positivity that your experience is having around you.
The way we, as a community, approach travel today is so different to how we used to. The masses are now more aware and educated on the impact we have on communities, culture and the planet. We, as travel professionals who have worked across various areas of the industry, have gained and shared valuable lessons in sustainable tourism. From cruising and all-inclusive holidays to ‘give-back’ travel and land tours we have selected the best ideals and want to put them into practice moving forward. We aim to incorporate exciting learning initiatives into our experiences, whether that be through seminars and led discussion groups, or getting you out there to see it with your own eyes! Education and understanding is key to making the whole of tourism a more sustainable industry - and we have every intention of being a part of that journey.
We are all responsible for contributing to the success of a better world. Being conscious of the decisions we make day to day is one of the most important. Things that sometimes slip our minds… not recycling that can, forgetting to take our own bags to the supermarket or missing the bin - but keep walking anyway.
So many people still adopt a ‘not my problem’ attitude but the world is changing and we, in turn, must change with it for the better. We believe in reassessing our moral compass and starting with a fresh perspective...being aware of our choices and how they will impact our own lives can only lead to betterment. Understanding how we spend our money and where? What does it take to get us from A-B? Who benefits or suffers from our decisions? We have made a promise to ourselves to always slow down, take that moment of thought, then decide. We want you all to be a part of it too... #takingslowmoments
