Soulful Concepts is pioneering the way in responsible travel by offering fair trade, and eco-friendly companies a unique opportunity to create Sustainable Harvest Tours to destinations where their products are grown and produced. Sustainable Harvest Tours focus on highlighting the corporate social responsibility of a company; by engaging consumers at a grassroots level they can make informed decisions about the products they buy; and better the farmers livelihoods by supporting companies with an ethical supply chain.

These tours connect consumers with the farmers who produce their favourite products; whether it’s coffee, cocoa, cotton or another commodity we help ethical companies showcase their supply chain and create transparency about how their products are produced. Consumers participate in special immersion programs, interacting with local communities to learn more about harvesting techniques and production processes. These are invaluable learning experiences not only for the consumer but also for the local farmers as they gain understanding about consumer’s preferences and societies rising concerns for sustainably harvested products.

And it doesn’t stop there, Soulful Concepts is also committed to growing the movement of sustainable living through responsible and eco-friendly consumption. By creating an online Community Hub, where socially conscious companies and consumers can explore and contribute important information by visually sharing their Pinterest boards.

In addition to Sustainable Harvest Tours, Soulful Concepts also works with Australian and International charities creating tailor-made Charity Engagement and Charity Challenge Tours.

Soulful Concepts only works with partners and suppliers that are equally committed to responsible, sustainable and eco-friendly tourism to ensure positive engagement with the local people and to ensure there is a reduced negative environmental impact.
