RESPONSIBLE TRAVEL

SmallChangeIcon

Making a positive difference to the amazing destinations we travel is at the core of what we do. 

Small Change is our own socially conscious initiative aimed at making the world that little bit better place to explore! 

Small Change Environment Icon
PROTECTING THE ENVIRONMENT

Sustainable travel and protecting the beautiful destinations we visit is one of our highest priorities. We undertake regular eco-audits of our operations to ensure we’re minimising our impact on the natural environment and take action accordingly.    

Small Change Community Icon
SUPPORTING LOCAL COMMUNITIES

We ensure every tour we run has a direct and positive impact on the local community and the money you spend goes to those that need it most. Each tour has a variety of #smallchanges that we’ve created, that you’ll get to experience first hand. 

Small Change Cultural Icon
CULTURAL EXCHANGE & EDUCATION

Understanding and respecting local cultures is at the core of everything we do. Every trip we run includes a number of authentic experiences that will give you a real feel for the communities we visit. 

Small Change Animal Welfare Icon
ANIMAL WELFARE

We work to ensure animals are never harmed or negatively affected by our activities. We support a number of local animal welfare groups and have adopted a number of rescue animals at the properties we own. 

Plastic Waste Small Change Image

Single use plastics are one of the world’s most serious environmental issues and a few years back we decided to take action. We have successfully installed refillable water stations at almost all of our overnight stops on every tour we operate and at many of our activities. Therefore drastically reducing the need for single use plastic bottles on any of our trips. We offer refillable water bottles for cheap to all group members that don’t already have one.

Siem Reap Villages Small Change

The rural villages of Siem Reap, Cambodia are very impoverished areas. Often young children cannot attend school there, simply because their family cannot afford the necessary uniforms and school supplies. From both our own contributions and the small leftover change of our group members we work directly with the local village chiefs to provide the necessary materials to the children that need it most.

Small Change Sustainable Farming

Our Thai Experience trip supports the development of the Rungfah Farm Stay in the stunning Khao Sok National Park. Created by our good friend and local guide ‘Mr You’ it’s a back to basics organic farm promoting sustainable / eco friendly living. Mr You has built the home stay by hand and uses solar power for an energy source. The fertilisers he uses on his crops are self produced and eco friendly. All money paid to Mr You goes towards helping his small family and the upkeep and improvement of his amazing eco-farm. 

Small CHange Earthquake Relief

A major earthquake on August 5th, 2018 devastated North Lombok and much of the Gili Islands. With the help of other tour operators we managed to raise over $50,000 to help the local community. We personally delivered several shipments of much needed supplies to the hardest hit areas including to Hifan our Gili Boat Operator, whose family was one of the most affected by the earthquake. 

Gede's Family Small Change

When we first started operations in Bali we wanted to make a real difference to the local community in Lovina, a beautiful quiet area in northern Bali. This is when we first met Gede and his lovely family who live on a small farm and coffee plantation. Our groups have visited Gede and got a first hand experience of basket weaving, coffee production and local life ever since. And through our continued involvement, Gede, his family and the local community have benefited greatly. 

Small Change Monk School

In Sri Lanka we work closely with a small ‘Pirivena’ or Buddhist monk school in Galle. All monies spent on this portion of our tour goes towards the maintenance and development of the school. Our groups teach English too and spend time with the young monk students to learn about their way of life. Our work with the school and surrounding community in Galle continues.

Small Change Mekong Village

Mr Op and his family from the Mekong Delta in Vietnam started with humble beginnings and only a couple of bungalows on a small island on the Delta. After 2 years of support from our groups visiting and experiencing how the locals really live there, he’s been able to create enough bungalows for our groups to stay with him and his family on this tiny island on the delta. 

Small Change Charlie's Children

At our property Sarana Bungalows in Koh Phangan, Thailand we collect group members and guests old clothes, toiletries and leftover coins they no longer want and distribute it to Charlie’s Children Charity, who work with disadvantaged children and the mentally handicapped to give them clothes, food, toiletries and medical equipment like crutches etc. They also organise BBQ’s and fun days for the kids to get involved in.

Beach Cleanups In Thailand INTRO Travel

We undertake regular beach clean ups across a number of our destinations to help tackle the ongoing issue of plastic and non-biodegradable waste ending up on the beautiful beaches we visit. We’ve also partnered with some amazing organisations such as Trash Hero in Thailand and Gili Eco Trust in Indonesia to help our cause.
