IME Travels promote responsible travel to areas that conserve the natural environment and improve the well-being of those indigenous people. We believe that responsible tourism promotes positive cultural and environmental ethics and practices. Understanding the potential harm that can come from promoting tourism through many of the delicate environments in which we operate is reflected on our ideology of ‘leave no trace’ tourism. Being a responsible traveler means more than just offsetting your carbon emissions, it requires thought and preparation. Responsible travel is based on the principles of sustainability and it requires you to examine the environmental, social and economic dimensions of your trip. Thus, responsible travel is all about minimizing the impact of your travel and maximizing the benefits for local economies, environments and host communities.
When we visit beautiful places it's natural to want our holidays to have a positive impact on local people and their environments. Tourism is now the world's fastest growing industry, but of course with that comes the increased responsibility on us to try to reduce any negative impact our journeys may have on the environment. Responsible travel is about bringing you closer to local cultures and environments by involving local people in tourism. Making informed choices before and during your trip is the single most important thing you can do to become a responsible traveler.
Before you travel:
While on holiday:
Cruelty, confinement, neglect and abuse means millions of animals worldwide pay a heavy price for tourist entertainment - many even pay with their lives. Tourist activities that involve the mistreatment of animals exist for one reason: tourists choose to support them. So keep in mind the following points when deciding what to do on your travels:
Flying and global warming:
Most of things that we do in our lives contribute to carbon dioxide emissions and global warming. Air travel - although currently a relatively small contributor (less than 5%) - is the fastest growing source of CO2 emissions. When we're on holiday, we tend to be more laid-back about things like reusing plastic bags and water bottles or turning off lights. If we can adjust our attitudes and general habits regarding responsible travel we can make a real difference.
