As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetWe take our environmental initiatives very seriously. We have recycling receptacles in all of our hostels and we encourage our travelers to recycle while on their tours. We also have paper recycling in each and every office for all of our staff members, so not only can our travelers recycle but so that our staff can as well.
As we are located in the Middle East we encourage all of our travelers to minimize their shower time if possible. In addition, in our Jerusalem hostel, we have shower heaters on a timer in order to reduce our electricity use. We have also switched over LED lighting in all our locations in an effort to reduce our carbon footprint.
We have recently undertaken urban gardening initiatives where we now have 2 active urban gardens in our Jerusalem hostel. We also have filtered water coolers in all of our hostels where we encourage our guests to simply refill their water bottles rather than buying new ones.
Our tour also visit many areas in nature including many Nature reserves, where our travelers are instructed not to interfere with the habitat and to simply enjoy the nature while not disturbing it.
PeopleWe pride ourselves on only working with local businesses. On each and every one of our tours our travelers stay at our chain of hostels which are locally owned and operated. Each day we strive to hire local people. We pride ourselves in employing people from all walks of life while providing equal employment opportunities to local residents, minorities and new immigrants.
On our tours we only work with local tour guides and use local suppliers for any tours that we do not operate in house. As well we have opened up the doors of our hostels to local artists, offering them a space where they can display their original works. In addition we also host local musicians on a weekly basis offering them a platform to showcase their talent.
Our hostels are a place that believes the best way for travelers to connect to the place they're visiting is to connect to the local community and we strive to do this each and every day.
