Ecotourism – it’s time to make a difference

Ecotourism – it’s time to make a difference

We all love to travel. You wouldn’t be here otherwise.

We love visiting exotic locations, meeting new people, trying new foods, sampling different cultures and getting close to wildlife in their natural habitats.

But the more we travel around the world, the more impact we have on it.

You’ve probably all heard the phrase “Take nothing but memories, leave nothing but footprints” but all too often that doesn’t happen and the environment, local communities and cultures we love so much are the ones to suffer.

So what can we do?

Travel more responsibly, more sustainably and with tour operators that pay more than lip-service to the concept of responsible tourism. That’s what.

One innovative company helping people do this is EcoCompanion.


As a booking engine for sustainable tours, projects and accommodation all around the world, EcoCompanion specialises in matching travellers to their perfect sustainable holiday. From staying at Eco-lodges to visiting conservation projects, EcoCompanion searches through their handpicked selection of reputable eco-friendly partners to find the one most suited to you.

World Rating System

All of the operators and organisations they work with are rated for their sustainability efforts so that you can see exactly who you are booking with and what steps they take to ensure their tours not only have as little negative impact on the places they visit, but that they positively contribute to any conversation efforts.

How does it work?

Here’s how it works… straight from the horses mouth:

1. We’ve put the world’s best eco-lodges, tours, and conservation projects all in one place – so you can have a world of nature right at your fingertips!

2. Ask the questions that are important to you, and receive a personalised itinerary. Then, book your perfect experience directly through our safe and secure booking engine, for the best price – guaranteed!

3. Now the only thing that’s left for you to do is go out and experience all the beauty the natural world has to offer!

Eco Companion is a search and booking engine for sustainable holidays in nature.

We gather the best eco lodges, tours and conservation projects from around the world, and use our own innovative World Rating System to analyse just how sustainable each experience. We then rank and sort search results based on how sustainable they are (from bronze to ‘elite green’).

This unique system rewards and incentivises sustainability within the nature tourism industry, as the higher the standard of a tour/lodge/project, the more business it will receive.

This system also educates the average user and empowers them to be able to make an informed decision when booking!

For people who want to put sustainability first, this is a unique and valuable feature.
