At Georgian Bay Tours, we believe in preserving the natural beauty of the world for future generations to enjoy. That’s why we are committed to sustainability and implementing environmentally conscious practices in all of our operations.
We take steps to reduce waste, conserve energy and water, and support local communities. From collecting garbage in the wild areas we travel to, partnering with eco-lodges like Harmony Outdoor Inn, and using alternative energy sources, we are constantly striving to minimize our impact on the environment.
We also encourage our guests to participate in our sustainability efforts and learn about the local culture and environment. By choosing our adventure tours, you not only get to experience the thrill of exploring new places but also support our mission to protect the planet.
Join us on a sustainable adventure and let’s make a positive impact together. These are some of the sustainability efforts we are committed to.
1% For the Planet
1% for the Planet is a global network of businesses that donate 1% of their gross revenue to environmental non-profit organizations. By donating to 1% for the Planet, businesses can demonstrate their commitment to sustainability and help fund crucial environmental initiatives.
The money donated through 1% for the Planet supports environmental non-profits that work on a range of initiatives, including conservation, pollution reduction, and habitat restoration. These organizations use the funds to perform important work and make a tangible difference in addressing the pressing environmental challenges facing our planet.
Georgian Bay Tours is proud to donate 1% of revenue to the UNESCO Georgian Bay Mnidoo Gamii Biosphere each year to help support the great work they do through environmental education, Cultural awareness, water studies and so much more.
Sustainable tourism certification is a way for tourism businesses to demonstrate their commitment to sustainable practices and environmentally responsible operations. The certification process involves an assessment of the business’s operations, including areas such as waste management, energy use, and water conservation, as well as their efforts to support local communities and cultural heritage.
We have been through the certification process and assessed at the bronze level. We are continuing to work on our sustainability in partnership with our staff team and business partners and hope to continue to become more sustainable as time goes on.
