Go Sustainable | Go-Green

When we started Jordan & Beyond Tours back in years, the field of ecotourism in Jordan was largely unknown to average travelers. It had not yet become the buzzword it is today, and was primarily a term used by insiders in the fields of responsible travel and conservation.Travel brings us up close to some of our planet’s most stunning natural wonders and connects us with cultures around the globe. It also has the power to change places and the lives of the people who live there – for better or worse. Our company is working to implement the most possible Go-Green steps and help our guests to travel sustainably in order to help our habitats and local communities in Jordan, concurrently with Earth; our mother nature to thrive, we are aiming to achieve as much goals as possible to implement the Go-Green tourism hand by hand with our guests, here are most recommend tips to Go-Green while visiting Jordan with us.

We Encourage You to Travel Sustainably Through Jordan:

  • J&B guides will explain to our guests at the beginning of each tour in Jordan about our Go Green Policy and recommendations in order to give a deeper understanding of how to travel sustainably in Jordan. feel free to discuss our policy with our guides or through e mails with us as your notes and suggestions are always welcome. 
  • Avoid using plastic materials at all, Take a BPA-free water bottle which you can refill over and over again. Majority of our buses are furnished with free water dispensers, which saves you money and wasting plastic bottles.
  • J&B will give each guest a cloth bag to use while being in Jordan instead of any plastic bags, guests can use it while shopping and buying things in Jordan.
  • Focus on recycled materials while shopping in Jordan like souvenirs, not only will this cut back on plastic waste, it will also reduce your carbon footprint–petroleum-based ingredients which are a staple in manufacturing plastic bottles and bags.
  • We fight smoking on all scales & as much as possible including our staff running our tours, if you have to smoke then you can do this easily in the open air sites as majority of Jordan sites are open air ones. The best is not to do for your health and ours.  
  • Limit car travel. It may be unavoidable reality for some legs of your trip, but because of its greenhouse-gas emissions, use them judiciously. Look at the possibility of walking as much as you can while being in Jordan. consider walking as an exercises while traveling. We do our best all the time to chose centrally located hotels in Jordan in order to encourage walking rather than driving.
  • A bicycle is an excellent tool for navigating around a destination once you're there (or, for the more ambitious, to rely on the entire trip), and you can avoid the fumes, headaches and at least some of the danger of maneuvering a car around an unfamiliar terrain. Walking, too, is an obvious choice which is healthy, environmentally friendly and supremely intimate. Ask us about our hiking, trekking and cycling tours.
  • Biting off a smaller territory to explore rather than multi-country sightseeing, or spending the longest possible time in one particular city / site / /camp to get a true feel for the landscape which reduces fuel use consumption.
  • Support the real local economy: Locally made crafts and souvenirs are not always cheaper, but purchasing them ensures your contribution to the economy will have a more direct and positive impact. Gift shops sell traditional items that are imported from China because they cost less, while villagers & locals make the hand made items. The difference is not just in the price. Buying the real supports authentic cultural heritage and provides needed jobs for the locals who make them.
  • Never buy wildlife products—period. Keep an eye out for the sale of plant and animal products derived from endangered or otherwise threatened species, and avoid contributing to this chronic problem. Jordan is not a common market for such products but still keeping this in mind is a a good idea. 
  • Seek out less-trampled corners. There is something to be said for concentrating tourism in one area to preserve more vulnerable sites, but it's also true that overuse can lead to increased air and water pollution, soil compaction, the trampling of vegetation and alterations to the travel routes of animals affecting their breeding and feeding habits. Cultural sites may be damaged from similar excessive visitation. In a national park or other wilderness area, ask park rangers or staff about the less-traveled areas to hike and camp.
  • Learn something of the local language. This long-standing tourism for broadening awareness helps demonstrate respect for the people whose communities and landscapes you're exploring. Locals who get the impression that tourists are willing to take the time to converse with them in their own tongue --- and attempt to use local names for menu items and locations --- may be more willing to support ecotourism in their area. Of course, such communication enriches your own experience as well, and the goodwill engendered might even land you a home-cooked meal or a personal escort to your destination. Learn more local words through: Jordan Booklet in our front page of website at top right of site header.
  • Seek out eco-friendly accommodation; Your hotel can be one of the largest expenses on your vacation, so it’s important to ensure you’re supporting businesses that support our environment & out local communities. Ask J&B for more advice accordingly since we re offering amazing options of sleeping with the locals, Bedouin camps, Guesthouses and Lodges and more. Before you book your next hotel or resort, do a little research or ask us.
  • Plant a tree in Jordan, ask J&B team in advance to arrange this
  • Find time to volunteer: For most, going on vacation is all about relaxation, but if you can find the energy to spend a little bit of your time giving back, you’ll find your next trip to be much more fulfilling – and environmentally friendly. There are dedicated travel programs that exist specifically for volunteer-oriented vacations, but if you don’t want to spend the whole time working, there are other options! Volunteering can be as simple as collecting bags of litter on your evening sunset stroll. check our volunteering tours on our tours page or ask J&B team to fir this while touring Jordan.
  • Take showers, not baths. Showers use just 10-25 gallons of water, while baths use up to 70 gallons. Feeling frisky? Shower with a friend and save even more water! Try to take shorter showers, turning the water off while you lather up, shampoo, shave, and/or brush your teeth. a tip for you; Jordan is considered as one of he poorest countries of water resources, your solidarity will help a lot.
  • Never use the hotel laundry, as they typically wash every guest’s clothes separately (even when there are only a few items). We usually wash our clothes as we shower, then hang them up overnight so they’re dry the next day.
  • Hang up your towels after each use, which is the universal sign that you’d like to use them again. You don’t wash your towels every day at home, so why do it when you travel?
  • When you leave your room, always turn off all lights, heat/AC, and television. Closing the curtains and blinds can help keep out the heat of the sun in summer.
  • Leave the “Do Not Disturb” sign on the door of your room for the duration of your stay. This cuts down on chemical cleansing agents, electricity used in vacuuming, and the washing of bed linens.
  • Return maps, brochures, and other tourist info once you’re finished with them so that they may be reused by future travelers.
  • Take any leftover soap, shampoo, or toothpaste with you. Unused portions are often thrown away, and you can reuse the plastic bottles in the future.
  • Marked hiking trails are there for a reason. Stick to the path to avoid harming native flora and avoid any creepy-craw lies that may be lurking in the underbrush.
  • Bring along a small bag and pick up any trash you spot along your hike. Have a friendly competition to see who can clean up the most unsightly waste! Ask J&B guide for small bags and our guide will make sure you will get it.
  • Support local communities while being in Jordan: We use local guides only and we tend to support local communities as much as possible. Buy their products, use their services and properties, such experience can be a great value to your tour.
  • Ask for permission before taking a photo of someone. In some cultures, taking a person’s picture is like stealing their soul. and in general it’s just common courtesy.
  • Immerse yourself in the local culture. Be a participant, not just an observer. Half the fun of traveling is getting an opportunity to step outside your comfort zone and try different foods, listen to different music, and explore different cultures. So, seriously, don’t be that guy who goes to India and insists on ordering a hamburger. 
  • Animal rights: certain activities offered o guests of Jordan are carried out by animals like horse riding in Petra, donkey riding in rough areas of Petra, camel riding in Wadi Rum ...  etc. We do not encourage using animals unless the main animal rights are. being respected, guests can judge on this on spot and decide whether to practice those animal related activities or not, main rights that to be respected are simply: right of having enough decent and clean food an water, fair and comfortable usage of animal, no sick or injured animal to be used, free fear nd distress right & animal express a a normal behaviors.
  • Human rights respecting including human, children & animals abuse is something we ask all suppliers to maintain and ask our guests to help encouraging the same as well
