Sustainable tourism isn’t a niche – 

it can be applied to any location, budget or style. But you do need to follow the plan, and that plan is all about the three Ps: People, Planet and Prosperity.

At Eat The Peach Travel, we model our business on the 3 P's.

People, Planet, Prosperity

We can still do it all, but we must do it better.

People 

 

Provide direct financial benefits and hire local whenever possible. We work with locals for transportation, and guides, while using smaller, family run bars and restaurants.

Planet 

 

Teach hired locals to become environmental awareness guardians. A forest logger trained as a tour guide, has a sustainable income, rather than depleting the environmental resource.

Prosperity addresses responsibility for local, safe working conditions. Locals make our adventures what they are and it’s important to give back in beneficial ways. Through employment and local charity engagement in our tour areas, it comes full circle.

Martha Honey (CREST), offers seven principles for sustainable travel, providing the 3 Ps blueprint: travel to natural destinations, minimize impact, build environmental awareness, provide direct financial benefits for conservation, provide financial benefits and power for local people, respect local culture, and support human rights and democratic movements.

 

So how do you build sustainability into your travel plans? Begin by creating an alternative path that’s attractive while sustainable, by doing the right thing you’re easy to follow. Do research – inspect credentials of partners, vendors and suppliers, many are trying to move forward sustainably. True eco-tourism will take a while, but it is the new world order whether we like it or not.

 

We can still do it all, but we must do it better.
