Sustainable food management

Sustainable food management

We are very conscious about the waste we create on our trips. As well as we can prepare for a zero-waste trip (quite possible as our food is so delicious), sometimes food waste may be unavoidable. We also ensure that the majority of the food you consume on your trip is locally sourced and with limited packaging.

Community projects

Community projects

We commit to donating approximately 4% of our net profits from every group trip to one of our impactful social or environmental projects. Previous project donations have helped a rural school in El Carmen de Viboral create their own organic garden.

We also maintain our economic sustainability by being fully certified to work in tourism in Colombia and you can check out our RNT certificate here.

17 UN Sustainable Development Goalst

We believe in the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and our positive impact is worked directly in line with these global goals. During each trip, travelers will visit or work with projects that are working towards at least one of these global goals for example organic farming in Antioquia that promotes responsible consumption (Goal 12).

Our impact measurement is based around three of these goals. Responsible Consumption, Life on Land (Goal 15) and Climate Action (Goal 13). We also donate to projects and work with partners that have included the SDGs in their own impact measurement policies thus promoting Goal 17 Partnerships for the Goals.
