Perfect Earth Tours is just that….
On May 28th, 2008 we will open
the doors to the world’s first (but hopefully not its last) 99% organically
sustainable luxury Spa Resort. The location chosen for this industry leading
project is the pristine alpine mountains of the
years of dedicated research into how we could open this resort without
contributing further to the deforestation of
and avoid the use of non-organic building materials or non-organic fabrics, we
came up with our business concept. Our main motivating factor was to show the
world, especially the mainstream corporate tourism industry, that it is not
only profitable but more importantly, very do-able to start a business venture
without further raping Mother Earth or its local populations.
We came up with the idea for
Perfect Earth Tours Spa
& Resort based on our love and deep respect
for Mother Earth and all people, our strong belief in personal and corporate
environmental responsibility, and our love of decadence.
wanted to provide an alternative for people who would like to experience the
timeless beauty of the true wild north, who want to do so in absolute luxury,
while contributing as much as possible to saving our planet and leaving nothing
but their personal footprint in the mountains.
We are two business owners who truly care more about the
environment and the legacy we will be leaving our children and grandchildren
than we care about the “bottom line” or our corporate profit. Of course, we have to make a living and take care of our family,
and preferably have a bottom line that will also allow us to lend a helping
hand to those who might need a bit of financial support.
With PET (Perfect
Earth Tours) we are trying to bust the commercial myth that you have to
compromise the environment in order to be luxurious and/or profitable. Not so!
We claim that 99% of everything we have done for PET is based on organic
One of our biggest concerns
was the issue of people having to travel a great distance to our location. The truth of the matter is that people will travel – they
always have. If we can convince 265 travelers per year to direct their travel
time to us instead of some other main stream holiday destination, then we have
done something good. We have partnered with “Planet Air” – a highly reputable
offset organization in
ALL of our clients will offset their travel to our Spa. Planet Air is the same
offset organization which assisted former
of his trips.
with us, clients will actually have a “net” contribution to lowering global
warming and will then be able to go home to their businesses or universities or
wherever it is they work and spread the word of what is possible and how
businesses can lead the way for our environment, while having experienced a
holiday like none other on this planet.
smaller level we have strict corporate guidelines for ourselves:
Support local organic businesses first.
• Buy organic within western
we can’t find it locally.
• Use recycled products – and recycle/reuse/reduce as much as possible.
• All of our bedding, clothing, and furniture are made of some kind of organic
material (i.e. hemp, cotton, raw silk etc.).
• Our vehicles and generators run on bio-diesel.
• Minimize the use of fossil fuel-related items, with the goal of totally eliminating
any use of fossil fuel-based items.
• NO PERMANENT structures in the bush. Our entire resort is dismantled at the
end of each season in order to make way for any migrating or wintering animals.
It is rebuilt in the spring, after the thaw.
• NO TRACE resort, which means really no trace!
• Using only alternative energy sources at our resort such as solar, wind,
geothermal, river, and human power.
• 5% of our client’s gross payment will be donated to a charity of their choice
and another 5% of their payment will be donated to a local independent charity
despite all of the above, we are still a profitable business which caters to a
very sensitive and demanding clientele and exceeds their highest expectations.
mission is to “spread the word” and lead by example. It is very possible to
start a business and at the same time contribute to the healing of our planet.
corporate motto is: BE THE BEST AND INSPIRE THE REST!
