At Biafo Tours we have got things you are definitely going to love, the places you have been dreaming to see, and the cultures you would love to jump into.
Humans are making more of an impact than other species. We are playing a powerful role in the protection of nature, to reduce the carbon footprint of our leisure trips. We encourage our travelers to act responsible and not to throw garbage and minimize the use of plastic and other disposable products.
This could include giving them conservation resources for the environment that they are visiting or promoting sustainable activities, for instance, cycle tours or wildlife sanctuaries while they are there. Encourage your customers to reduce their waste and take the waste products with them, think about putting resources into an electric vehicle for visits, and reduce the waste by utilizing electronic registration and administration systems instead of printing resources.
This is as basic as using local guides and taxi services, eating at local eateries and staying at locally owned rest houses. Keeping the profits within the community will both guarantee that the destination continues to exist and the local community can have better economic conditions.
This includes sensitizing your customers about local culture and locally made products and convincing them to buy the local products. If your business sells to a particular area you could even consider supporting a local conservation project yourselves (like this one in Scotland) and encourage your customers to consider doing the same.
