We at Purequest Adventures - India are committed to environment-friendly, sustainable and responsible tourism practices. We carefully select the accommodation providers, especially in ecologically sensitive areas as per their sustainable practice track record.
On our tours, we discourage the use of plastic and other non-biodegradable disposable items and minimize our solid waste generation to almost zero. In ecologically sensitive areas like National Parks and Wildlife Sanctuaries, we reduce the number of safaris by providing alternative activities around the reserve and in villages. Less number of safaris not only reduces the negative impact on biodiversity of the park but simultaneously provide alternative activities that will help support the local communities.
We encourage our guests to get involved and actively participate in conservation related activities by organising 'voluntours' at different times of the year in different parks and wildlife rescue centres. Also, an amount of the profit is given to the local wildlife conservation organisations as part of our CSR policy.
Purequest provides financial support to various NGOs working in the field of wildlife conservation. Our effort to ban the use of plastic bottles for our guests who visit India has become a catalyst in saving the environment in the places we visit. For every guest we handle, we save around 30 bottles which is close to half a million bottles every year. As an alternate, we provide stainless-steel sippers that are filled by guests themselves using 20-litre bottles that are kept in the boot of the car/ coach.
