Greenloons Eco-Adventures

Greenloons was established in May 2010, after Irene Lane (Founder & President) has realised that there was a lot of misinformation about ecotourism and very little transparency about the industry. She wanted to create a site that would present the facts about ecotourism, let consumers decide for themselves, and supply a forum to share their experiences. But, she wanted to go one step further and only offer vacation packages provided by certified or accredited tour operators.
Greenloons has established contracts with eco-certified guiding companies and sustainable tourism accommodation owners all over the world. Browse through their Green Vacation Collection and contact them with any eco-vacation questions, customisation needs or group requests.

Ethical Commitment:

Greenloons is committed to providing trusted, transparent information about authentic, responsible, sustainable and certified ecotourism travel vacations available around the world.
Greenloons only lists vacation experiences from guiding companies and lodges that have dedicated nature and wildlife tours, established energy and wildlife conservation policies, commitment to host destination economic prosperity, and adherence to environmental standards as set forth by recognized third parties including: Australia’s ECO Certification Program, Botswana’s Ecotourism Certification System, Brazil’s Adventure Tourism Certification(Aventura Segura), Costa Rica’s Certificate for Sustainable Tourism (CST), Green Globe Certification Program, Fair Trade in Tourism (FTT), South America’s Smart Voyager Program, Sustainable Tourism Eco-Certification Program (STEP), or United Nations Global Compact. Additionally, the ecotour operator needs to have received a conservation or environmental award by a legitimate organization – she mentions that we would be surprised how many companies make up awards and then award themselves!

Their goal is to make it easy to directly connect travelers with meaningful, unique and awesome travel experiences by working with eco-certified guiding companies and sustainable tourism accommodation owners that have been independently verified as focusing on the triple bottom line of economic viability, social empowerment, and environmental responsibility: Social empowerment to protect against tourism homogenization and community marginalization, Economic viability to promote collective pride of ownership and as a tool for alleviating poverty, and Environmental responsibility to preserve ecosystems for future generations.
