OUR COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABILITY

At OneSeed, we're committed to doing travel right. Our model is simple: 

HIRE LOCAL GUIDES.

We hire experienced guides from local communities. 

INVEST IN LOCAL ENTREPRENEURS AND LOCAL ECONOMIES.

We invest 10% of total revenue in the form of microcredit to small-scale entrepreneurs.  We partner with small businesses to maximize local benefit from tourism. 

PROTECT LOCAL ENVIRONMENTS.

We practice Leave No Trace principles on all our expeditions and we incentivize environmental best practices among our partners. 

RESPECT LOCAL CUSTOMS.

We operate with respect and mindfulness everywhere we travel.
