Travel the Fair Trade way!
Fair Trade Tourism benefits real people in real life.
Fair Trade Tourism (FTT) is for travellers who want to make a difference. Being a responsible traveller means having an amazing experience, while at the same time giving back to the people and the environment you visited. It is a commitment to honouring the people and places that made your holiday happen.
FTT-certified businesses are committed to fair wages and working conditions, fair purchasing and operations, equitable distribution of benefits and respect for human rights, culture and the environment.
You will leave feeling relaxed and recharged, knowing that you’ve made a real difference to someone’s life and livelihood.

What others say
“We have found that having the business certified, allows guests to see that their money benefits the communities around them, specifically in the community projects that The Backpack supports.
It makes the staff themselves see that we don't believe in them being paid unfairly, thus they know that they get paid fairly, and even monthly tips are distributed evenly.
Travellers are more selective these days about selecting "green products" and being a Fair Trade Certified establishment has helped guests select to stay with us, rather than your non-certified establishment around the corner.”
