Tanna Adventures - Moral & Ethical Practices - Definitions.



Fair Trade

The Fairtrade Labelling Organization International (FLO) states :-

' Not all trade is fair! Farmers and workers at the beginning of the chain don’t always get a fair share of the benefits of trade. Fairtrade enables consumers to put this right.

Fairtrade is an alternative approach to conventional trade and is based on a partnership between producers and consumers. Fairtrade offers producers a better deal and improved terms of trade. This allows them the opportunity to improve their lives and plan for their future. Fairtrade offers consumers a powerful way to reduce poverty through their every day shopping.'

Responsible Travel

ResponsibleTravel states :-

' Responsible travel is a new way of travelling for those who've had enough of mass tourism. It's about respecting and benefiting local people and the environment – but it's about far more than that.

If you travel for relaxation, fulfilment, discovery, adventure and to learn – rather than simply to tick off 'places and things' – then responsible travel is for you.

Responsible travel suits life's curious adventurers and enthusiasts.'




































Tanna Adventures - Organizations We Believe In & Support.

In this changing world, where the impact of 'outside' people and business impacts fragile communities, it is important for people everywhere to actively make decisions about what is right, what is wrong and what we can do to help. The responsibility on all of us to make moral and ethical choices has never been greater.

We respect and support the following Organizations, who are trying to make a difference in Vanuatu :
