Author - Susie J, CEO @ WanderKit
Being a wanderer means caring about the planet and leaving a positive impact on our local communities. And as wanderers ourselves, we are thrilled to announce that WanderKit is officially a certified Public Benefit Corporation (PBC) as of June 2022! We are fully committed to building a sustainability and community-driven business that puts environmental and people’s needs before those of shareholders and advertisers. As a PBC, WanderKit must commit to giving back to society and/or the environment. Additionally, we must report on the company’s overall social and environmental performance.
Our mission has always been simple: to build human connections and to share fun, authentic experiences. We strive to accomplish our mission by carefully curating sustainable adventures and selecting partners who share our values. We vow to promote social good causes and eco-friendly travel/tourism to wanderers seeking to explore the globe. As WanderKit continues to grow our community and expand to different corners around the world, we encourage all wanderers and travelers to minimize their carbon footprint and environmental disruption.
