At Sustainable Tourism, we love showing people that sustainability doesn’t have to trade off with comfort or service, so we’re pumped to tell the world about Tour Salt Spring and how they are on the cutting edge of sustainable business and tourism innovation!
Tour Salt Spring was recently upgraded to Sustainable Tourism Gold Certification in recognition of their dedication to sustainability! Since 2015, they have reduced their fossil fuel use by 86%, with a 76% increase in business revenues! They achieved these impressive results mainly though the following actions:
Tour Salt Spring operates on Salt Spring Island, the largest of the Gulf Islands just off the shores of Vancouver Island. The island has a wealth of experiences to offer visitors, and Tour Salt Spring is passionate about sharing what they love about their home, such as the farm-fresh organic food grown on numerous local farms, creative tight-knit community, lush forests, and beautiful coastline.
We love seeing and hearing about the ingenious ways that Sustainable Tourism members such as Tour Salt Spring are cutting back on their impacts and growing their businesses, all while providing their guests and clients an unrivaled experience. Next time you’re on Salt Spring Island, go ahead and take a sunshine or veggie-powered tour in one of their Green Machine(s)!
