What does Lets Go Travel UNIGLOBE do towards this goal?
As an intermediary between the traveller and the attraction, we have taken a two way approach towards sustainability: classified as either internal or external practice.
Our internal practices have led to recycling paper and plastic, banning single-use plastic, minimizing the use of water and energy and advocating for sustainable itineraries to clients through the use of eco-rated hotels and lodges.
Our external practices aim to engage with environments and communities to build future proof strategies by having sustainable projects in place to empower local stakeholders as well as preserve the environment.
All our projects are based on our 4 sustainability pillars: Education, Conservation, Community Tourism and Livelihood.
What can you, as a tourist, do?
• Choose a safari or holiday that supports sustainable destinations, lodges and hotels.
• Subscribe to our Travellers Philanthropy programme, where USD10 is donated to one of our projects for every booking made; and give more towards this initiative.
• Donate or start an ongoing project with the community around education, health, better livelihoods or environment (for example piping of water or tree planting).
• Visit one of our humanitarian projects and give time, financial support and company/pleasure to the individuals, to help uplift their belonging in society, and give direction and hope.
