Here at Cozymoons, we truly believe in the power of Travel in changing the planet - for the better. But first, we need to make a collective & conscious effort in preserving the place we call home. Sustainability is what significantly sets us apart from run-of-the-mill lifestyle/travel companies in India.
For us, Travel is a moving emotion. Designing every experience in a way that improves our travellers and also imprints positively on the communities and destinations that we explore. Travel has always played a vital role in uplifting communities by generating employment, inflow of money into economies and awareness for social and wildlife conservation projects.
OUR FOCUS ON LOCAL COMMUNITIES
For an industry that employs close to 300 million people (directly & indirectly) contributing to over $7.00 trillion to the global GDP - Travel is truly more enormously important to our lives than we could imagine.
Creating such gigantic employment thereby empowering communities, dramatically changes the landscapes of educational & social welfare.
At Cozymoons, we're committed to our goal of positively impacting communities within India and across the world through responsible travel practices. We work with a carefully selected list of reliable partners that in-turn support and contribute to social organizations and charities.
OUR BATTLE AGAINST OVERTOURISM
While Travel has the power to positively impact our planet, we are seeing increasing cases of negative outcomes due to the menace of Overtourism.
Overtourism causes local communities to suffer due to increased plastic waste, unreasonable spikes in real estate prices due to sub-letting, deforestation, bio-health hazards, air pollution and more.
We take a conscious effort to educate and guide travellers to travel to lesser known places in popular countries, visit off-beat countries, eat at local restaurants, shop at local stores and ensure a strive for a distribution of wealth across the region rather than concentrating those in tourist hotspots.
OUR FOCUS ON MARINE & WILDLIFE
A huge number of experiences across the globe are substantiated by their interaction with animals on land, in the air and within our oceans.
In order to protect the sanctity of these beautiful species, we've pledged to discourage travellers from indulging in erroneous forms of animal tourism whether it's riding Elephants, interacting with Dolphins/Lions/Cheetahs in unnatural environments, fishing trips and more.
We prefer working with lodges across Africa, resorts in the Indian Ocean and hotels around the world that are committed to conservation & sustainability projects.
OUR SUSTAINABLE PRACTICES
Sustainability begins at home. And we live by those words. To ensure we leave no stones unturned in our quest for positive impacts through our work, here's a list of things we do to further encourage our travellers:
Eco-friendly Cozymooners Kit containing reusable stainless-steel & bamboo straws along with wooden toothbrushes that are sent to our travellers pre-departure. (as seen on the right)
A comprehensive Save Paper, Save Trees Policy where we request our travellers to accept only digital version of their trip documents such as itineraries, hotel vouchers, insurance copies etc. Further, we aim to be a paperless workspace in the coming months ahead.
Effective 2020, as an aftermath of #COVID19, all travellers will have the option to avail a complimentary add-on of hand sanitizers, reusable face masks and reusable gloves as part of their pre-departure travel kits.
