My wife Shantel and I have been together since 2006. All these years we shared a dream of creating a model based on principles of sustainability, minimalist living and responsible business.
A lot of the inspiration behind this vision came from our many years working in the ecotourism sector abroad. We had the opportunity to visit some of the most bio-diverse and pristine destinations on the planet, while learning about sustainable tourism models and environmental conservation.
The more we learned, the more we became concerned about the devastating impacts that unsustainable human activity continues to have on the natural world. Everything from shark fining, plastic pollution, de-forestation, water contamination to habitat destruction all over the world.
We started to get involved in environmental activism and supporting different initiatives and campaigns towards environmental conservation. We began to embrace a minimalist lifestyle early on, with the understanding that a lot of what's driving these problems are some of our current consumer trends and culture of materialism.
This amalgamation of our lifestyle, passion for nature and business approach ultimately became Alter Experiences LLC.
Economic growth & sustainable business development can be achieved without plundering our resources, destroying the environment or succumbing to corporate greed.
New economic trends point towards more localized & community centric models, which encourage business comradery & responsible business practices.
It's time for a change in the way we live, in the way we do business & in our priorities as a society.
