Expedition.Earth.

 the world is a big place, get out there and explore.

An initiative to connect people + places.

We aim to raise awareness about global sustainability and conservation issues - including deforestation, water quality and biodiversity-  by bridging the gap between traveler and community.

Travel has the power to bring people together like nothing else can.  Geo-tourism is defined as travel that sustains or enhances the geographic character of a place - it environment, culture, aesthetics, heritage and the well-being of its residents.  

Through our affiliate company, LOST COAST EXPEDITIONS we connect people, companies and groups looking for meaningful travel experiences focused on ecological research, volunteering, sustainable development and conservation with opportunities for exploration via our partner travel companies, Departure Lounge, Amazon Expeditions, Gondwana Eco-Tours and Sustainable Travel International

In 2017, we traveled to Peru and Ecuador for a moth to research sustainable development and best-practices in eco-tourism.  You can read about our trip on our blog HERE.  

we are just travelers on this earth.

Fair Trade.

Fair Trade is a global movement made up of a diverse network of producers, companies, shoppers, advocates, and organizations putting people and planet first. Fair Trade is a way to make a conscious choice for a better world. Today's global market enables—often encourages—compromise at the expense of farmers, workers, and fishermen. People stand with Fair Trade to demand higher standards for everyone.  At MOUNTAINSUN, we support Fair Trade and have began efforts to source our own Fair Trade Products under the MOUNTAINSUN brand.
