Who was it that said it's better to have millions of people doing sustainability imperfectly rather than a handful doing it perfectly? We would love to be immediately 100% perfect – that's hard, but not impossible. We are taking small and determined steps in the right direction and share the stories of sustainable and ethical travel from within our community of greener hotels, products and people.
We venture further than the 'no single-use plastic'. We delve deeper into our community, seeking out those anchor points of green inspiration that echo our shared philosophy of eco-conscious thinking. Explore the sustainable touchpoints of Architecture + Design, Energy + Technology, Agriculture + Food and Conservation + Community. Our edit of heroes doing it better, the hotels that continually protect and nurture their environments, the ethical pioneers of local, the fosterers of organic way of living and the regenerative thinkers that innovate, to those collaborators who support the community through positive ethics. A green-at-heart edit which celebrates each small step.
