Our Commitment to Responsible Tourism

"Be GREEN - Keep it on the SCREEN!" is our motto in publishing the Tourism Tattler Trade Journal. The magazine is distributed in digital (interactive) format, but if any reader really wants to contribute to deforestation, printed copies can be purchased via Amazon and four other print-on-demand magazine sale portals.

We support the aims of responsible tourism practices by including educational content on the subject in every monthly edition.
