Sustainable travel: planting the seed for your next adventure

By: The Outbound Collective + Save to a List

Is it possible to travel in a way that's not only sustainable but also makes a difference for the better? OneSeed Expeditions offers insight.

When it comes to traveling responsibly, there's a lot to think about. There are also a lot of travel and tour companies out there who will slap certification labels across their brands and make claims about their sustainable approach. In fact, the New York Times recently reported that there are about 180 certification labels throughout the tourism industry, each claiming to certify the green practices of hotels, restaurants, and tour operators. 

So we've done the homework for you. Enter OneSeed Expeditions.

What OneSeed Expeditions is doing differently (and better) for travelers and destinations.

Committed to their mission-forward mantra, Travel for Good, OneSeed Expeditions offers next-level expeditions with sustainability built into its business model. They invest in local entrepreneurs through their OneSeed Fund, they work with local partners on ways to reduce or eliminate single-use plastic, and they offset every traveler's carbon footprint from the moment they land to the day they leave.

Back to certifications. Here's one that holds up to the hype. OneSeed Expeditions is a certified B-Corporation, meaning they've met the highest verified standards for social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability. You can see how the company rises to B-Corp standards here.

There's more. The B-Corp-certified travel company is actively developing partnerships with sustainable travel operators in new destinations that can really benefit from tourism. They call the partnerships they've developed the OneSeed Collective. And the benefit of this collective is clear - more amazing trips and more local entrepreneurs supported through The OneSeed Fund.
