We achieve this by partnering with organizations and governments overseas that empower their local communities through experiential learning and practical development. We provide others with the same positive travel experience in which we ourselves engage. Through travel, we help individuals reach their full potential.

Additional Background Information: As the leading eco-friendly exchange organization, our concern for the welfare of the planet drives our passion for helping responsible travelers while respecting the environment and unique cultural heritage of the destinations they explore.

Our Carbon Offset Program is another way to alleviate the environmental impact of travel. We donate a portion of your program fee to offset the carbon emissions your trip abroad will create.

Our Greenheart Club is another way we promote green practices while traveling abroad. We constantly strive to find better, more ecologically sound and efficient ways of providing services locally and abroad.

Creating sustainability within our international communities is an important Greenheart Travel initiative. We believe in creating opportunities for people on the local and international level that allow them to take action in bettering their lives, their neighborhoods, and understanding through cultural and environmental awareness.
