Other Sustainability Notes

Done right, travel can make a big and positive difference in the world. But it can also have negative repercussions. The shadow of “over tourism” and travel that extracts natural and cultural resources grows taller and darker. Our goal is that the places we visit – and live – are protected and flourishing for future generations. That’s why we’ve launched Modern Adventure. To show how travel can be a force for good. And we strive to make this more than feel good messaging, and that it’s aligned and supported by every part of our business. Being a startup is a wild and hectic experience, with a priority list that’s always competing and urgent. Amidst this tension, we decided getting certified as a B Corp and becoming Carbon Neutral were non-negotiable.
