Ecuador Eco Adventure’s Commitment to Sustainable and Environmentally Friendly Eco Tourism
FIRST WE START SMALL: On our camping treks we try to avoid as much of the wasteful over-packaged plastic wrappers as possible. This drastically reduces our carbon footprint as well as stops your money from entering the bank account of destructive multinationals like Nestlé.
STRICT CAMPERS CODE: Like most truly passionate trekkers and climbers we are often left in awe of nature’s raw beauty or what they call the pachamama in Ecuador. This means we live by the campers code — “LEAVE THE PLACE CLEANER THAN YOU FOUND IT” — which may mean carrying other peoples rubbish off the mountain but feeling good about it because we are keeping Ecuador’s beautiful paramos clean and in pristine condition.
OFF-THE-BEATEN-TRACK: If you come trekking in the Andes with us then we will take you far away from the hordes of tourists being shuttled around on buses. Being far off-the-beaten-track, however, comes with the responsibility of leaving the smallest ‘footprint’ as possible to minimize the impacts of tourism on the sometimes fragile ecosystems.
INCLUSIVE COMMUNITY TOURISM: By hiring local and indigenous guides for most of our treks and tours we can spread the benefits of socially responsible tourism across rural communities that are often disenfranchised and marginilized.
Ecuador Eco Adventure is certified by the Ministry of Tourism and Environment — we take our commitment to social responsible tourism very seriously.
