GoodTravels was founded on the principle that anyone can be an ambassador of goodwill and a champion for positive impact. We get so much from travel, why not apply that philosophy and give a little back? Our goal is to empower the current generation of travelers to fully embrace their role as changemakers. Travel is a privilege, a luxury, and a gift – there is no doubt about that. However, as the tourism industry continues to boom, and as countless travelers remain unaware of its potential detriment to our planet (carbon emissions from plane rides, displaced locals, chemicals in our oceans, and so on), it is absolutely vital that we do our part in educating others, to ensure that we use travel as a tool for positive impact on our planet, versus negative. Don’t consider yourself a mindful traveler or don’t quite know where to start? That’s where GoodTravels comes in.
Local experiences bring like-minded people together in your city. We gather local intellects, tastemakers and changemakers for events designed to entertain, educate, and engage. Through interactive discussions on local and global experiences, interactive networking opportunities, and good old-fashioned fun, our goal is for you to leave inspired.
Curated travel experiences bring you to places you’ve always dreamed about visiting with people you’ve always wanted to meet, with sustainable tourism in mind. We take care of the bulk of travel plans (with your personal freedom in mind as well), and we infuse them with learning, purpose, and a chance to give back. We believe that when you go to a destination you should leave it better than when you entered. So, we connect you with local organizations on the ground that are doing meaningful work, and help you get involved. Don’t just go, grow.
Support causes you believe in, even if you don’t have the time to come to an event or go on a trip with us. We’re constantly scouting for organizations that are catalysts for positive change because they’re doing amazing work all over the world. It’s our sincere pleasure to shed light on those organizations, and to give you an opportunity to learn about them and provide monetary support. What’s best, we believe in giving back to those who give to us and the causes we support, so we offer incentives by way of sweepstakes and product giveaways, whenever we can.
Ultimately, through all of our channels, our goal is to empower you to become the change you wish to see in the world. We look forward to connecting with you online, seeing you at a local event, or sharing a travel experience with you. We thank you in advance for your support, and remind you that no matter where you go, good travels with you.
