Whereas several other online travel search engines list accommodations and businesses that promote mostly environmentally green tourism, Kutoa is distinct in that it specifically handpicks socially green hotels and excursion companies that focus on the people and social causes within 50 miles (80 km) of where those companies operate. While Kutoa encourages its member businesses to implement environmentally green practices, the company’s driving focus is on social responsibility and promoting trips that proactively benefit the communities travelers visit. Although socially green and responsible tourism are still relatively new concepts, the increasing interest from travelers in finding trips that make a difference indicates that this exciting new industry can expect rapid and expansive growth over the next few years.
All of Kutoa’s member businesses are rigorously screened to ensure they fit the company’s socially green criteria. Businesses such as hotels, bed and breakfasts, eco-lodges, hostels, resorts, safaris, scuba companies, volunteer programs, and tour companies can qualify for Kutoa membership if they donate money, goods, or services to support important local causes. Currently, qualifying businesses can capitalize on a promotional 6-month free membership with Kutoa by applying through KutoaTravel.com or contacting the company directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
