Responsible Travel - ECOSEA


PRINCIPLES & CERTIFICATION
Our Sustainability Management System
 
We believe that our business should be a force for sustainable development in Vietnam. This commitment to corporate social responsibility relies on a management system which we designed to guide our internal policies and the relationships along our supply chain. We are the first tour operator in Vietnam to have implemented such a system, and we are proud of this accomplishment.
 

OUR PROJECT
 
Besides striving to operate in a more sustainable business environment, we use our tours to support projects in environmentally sensitive areas and to aid local economic development. We feature here some of our most recent projects.
 
Capacity building and community-based tourism projects
 
In Hua Tat, Hang Kia - Son La or in Mai Chau, Ban Buoc, Mai Hich . . . we worked alongside local people in a disadvantaged mountainous area to create a new guesthouse and train locals on managing successful tourism businesses.
 
In Giao Xuan - Giao Thuy - Nam Dinh  nature reserve we served the MCD & NGO  in a consulting role for their project of nature conservation and livelihood improvement to organize eco-tours in the Reserve.
 
In Hai Anh - Hai Hau - Nam Dinh, we trainning for local people work as home host to welcome tourist come to work and study in there village. Beside that student can teaching english for children...
 
Our educational tours. Every year, Ecosea welcomes groups of students from international schools and colleges to stay with an ethnic community in remote areas. An opportunity for young people to play with their counterparts in simple earthen playgrounds and to take social or environmental action for the community. For example, they build a schoolyard, plant trees or give a hand in restoring a classroom. The experiences from the trip leave indelible memories in both guests’ and hosts’ minds.
 
The Primate Conservation Fund is an initiative ECOSEA took hand-in-hand with Flora and Fauna International, the world's longest running conservation organization. The money raised directly from bookings of nature-based tours help cover the costs of paying local community rangers to patrol remote forest areas.
Awareness raising events
 
The Countryside Journey. Each summer we organize a trip to Nam Dinh to remove litter and build awareness of the Sea Coast's environmental needs.
 
DO & DON"T 
Our commitment toward Responsible Tourism
• Minimize negative impacts by intensive consultation and collaboration with local communities.
• Provide education on environmental and cultural issues among visitors and hosts.
• Promote positive, respectful experiences for both visitors and locals.
• Provide direct financial benefits for conservation and poverty reduction.
• Raise sensitivity to hosts' political, environmental, and social climate.
• Build partnerships with scientific researchers (ecologists, biologists, geographers, anthropologists)
 
Our tips for you to be a more responsible traveler
 
Please ensure you don’t leave waste in these pristine environments.  Particularly plastic bags and batteries can be highly polluting – take them back with you.  Only leave your footprints!
 
 The only place to put your rubbish is in a rubbish bin or other proper waste receptacle.
 
“Toy rowm lay tooy nee long” is the phonetic Vietnamese for “I don’t take plastic bags.”   If you buy from locals, please refuse plastic bags as much as possible.  You are acting responsibly and raise awareness by doing so.
Please be conscious of water usage.  Save water and take a shorter shower!
 
Most rural houses are not equipped for high power usage.  Please remember to turn off lights, unplug chargers when full, and minimize use of hot water.  You can be a Power Hero!
 
Please remember to “Respect and Adapt”.  Respect the environment and adapt to it. You are a stranger in a fragile environment and micro-society.
 
Don’t be afraid to bargain.  But always pay a fair price.  Over enthusiastic bargaining or over generosity both have negative effects.
 
The best way to explore the countryside and interact with the locals is to go by foot, trekking is the way to immerse yourself in the place and the culture.  Go human-powered!
 
We appreciate your feedback.  Comments about sustainability and responsible travel are most welcome.  Tell us how you feel and how we can improve.
 
Promote responsible travel and experiences. Talk to your family and friends.  Word of mouth and social networks are the great Green Channels.
