Hoops & Ladders of Certifications
GETTING A CERTIFICATION IN THE SUSTAINABILITY WORLD IS LIKE GETTING A BADGE OF HONOR TO GO OFF AND FIGHT FOR THE WORLD. WE’VE MENTIONED THE IMPORTANCE – BECAUSE IT IS, BUT THERE’S ALSO MANY HOOPS AND LADDERS TO JUMP THROUGH AND CLIMB. THERE’S THE QUESTION OF IS THIS LEGIT? ANY GREENWASHING HERE? AND OFTEN A MASSIVELY LONG CHECKLIST TO GET A GRIP. MORE OFTEN DISCOURAGING THAN NOT, WE’RE PRACTICING WHAT WE PREACH AND DOING IT!
Luckily, navigating sustainable certifications has gotten easier as Eat The Peach Travel has dived deeper into the sustainability world. We’re patting ourselves on the back as we have been working on completing our Global Sustainable Tourism Council certification. The GSTC are champs in managing the GSTC Criteria of global standards for sustainable travel and tourism. Can we display their logo on our website when finished? No. Are we still going to brag about it? Yes!
