WE GO BEYOND: greenwashing, local comunity and taking care of our team
Every year during March, the global B Corp community joins to celebrate everything it means to be a B Corp-certified company. Throughout the month we build awareness and educate different audiences on the ways in which the movement is transforming the economic system for the better. Here’s what our agency has to say about it:
We go beyond GREENWASHING.
Yeah, we know – “sustainability” is a buzzword nowadays. But at our small travel agency, sustainability is not just a trend; it’s in our genes! Our parents and grandparents, mostly farmers, lived and worked sustainably before we decided to offer our beautiful land as a product. Green forests, turquoise rivers, and bustling city streets are not products in themselves, but a cycling or hiking tour is. At Visit GoodPlace, we strive to ensure that everyone benefits from this “product,” from the local restaurant owners who fill us with tasty food to the farmers who have turned old haylofts into accommodations. Our guides, who can combine their hobby and work in a unique way, also benefit. And we make sure that the natural environment does not suffer from the kind of tourism we offer at Visit GoodPlace.
The result is a product that our guests are delighted with – and at the same time reassured that they made the right choice. Thank you for appreciating our efforts toward sustainability, and we hope you enjoy your stay in beautiful Slovenia!
We go beyond by giving back to LOCAL COMMUNITY.
Nowadays, it’s so easy to plan a cycling or hiking route with all the online tools available. But creating a quality tour isn’t that simple! Quality for us isn’t just about fancy hotels – we prefer cozy family-owned hotels or farm stays. We do visit popular tourist attractions, but we’re always on the lookout for hidden gems untouched by mass tourism. We always make sure to thank our hosts for showing us the beauty of green Slovenia and preserving it for future generations.
Dear local restaurateurs, hoteliers, and tourist farm owners – THANK YOU for working hand in hand to make our trips unforgettable. Can’t wait to see you all soon!
At Visit GoodPlace, we go beyond just taking CARE of our team.
Our agency’s heart is made up of passionate individuals who believe in their work and the products we offer on the market. Our team includes not just warm-hearted guides, but also cartographers, tour creators, communicators, administrators, and website/social media experts. We make sure to reward them appropriately, let them work from home, and turn their proposals into reality. Every team member can use our rental bicycles for free (when they’re not on tours, of course) and we encourage and co-finance sports participation. We even get our blood tested together! We believe in education, not just for professional skills but for personal growth as well.
Dear each and every one of you from the Visit GoodPlace team – THANK YOU for your hard work and dedication. Let’s keep building our dream together!
