Responsible tourism has become imperative in modern times. High level of energy consumption, exploitation of natural resources and neglect of local communities are negative practices that harm our heritage wealth and the World as whole. Indiafootprints conducts tourism package in sensitive zones and its practices are fully compatible with the guidelines of responsible tourism.
As responsible tour operator we believe in conservation and follow environmental friendly policies. We encourage participatory management involving local communities. Responsible tourism practice is one of the main criteria while selecting our partners and service providers.
Eco friendly home stays are preferred as our partners. Our tours maximize employment to the locals and encourage responsible behavior during the journeys. We encourage the use of non traditional environmental friendly energy and food sources in order reduce the burden on fossil fuels and costly energy generation.
Where ever we step foot we leave a friendly imprint on the soil that which preserves and delivers. The aim is to minimize the negative impact on the natural paces and set example for others. Proper sanitation, recycling of resources, efficient waste disposal, solar energy, water conservation practices are some of the essentials of responsible tourism.
While we encourage shopping in local community markets, we discourage use and purchase of wild animal products. We do not permit purchase of items of archaeological and historical importance. Purchasing handicrafts and other manufacture of local expertise is the key to encourage and sustain local communities. Contribution to social and health causes of tribal and poor communities in places of tourism is a best practice which all tour operators and accommodation providers should follow the most.
