We give a shit. 

Wakeful Travel is, and always will be, completely transparent about where we source our products. We're continually striving to improve our products and process so that we can support Mother Nature and the beings of the planet.


Our Manufacturer:

  • Prints with plant-based inks
  • Is an FSC certified facility
  • Follows the framework of 14001 Environmental Management
  • Meets the requirements of ISO 900 quality accreditations
  • Follows the international Standard EN71 and the US standard ASTM F963 that deals with lead and phthalate bans


Our Fulfillment:

  • When we start out: We use 100% certified home compostable mailers, shipped by the founder herself
  • Once we scale: We'll use a fulfillment company in North America to ship the journals for us
  • They have high environmental standards, and their envelopes, boxes and paper packaging is 100% recyclable
  • We're working with them to use compostable packaging in future


The People:

  • No beings are harmed or exploited in the creation, printing and shipping of the journals
  • Every organization we collaborate has to have similar ethics to us. You won't see us collaborating with big names, just to get more followers


Who We Donate To:

For every journal purchased, Wakeful Travel donates 5% to 3 kick-ass organizations:

  • The Changing Tides Foundation focuses on causes in global communities and enables travellers to serve naturally & adventure consciously
  • Surfers Against Sewage is a conservation charity working with communities to protect oceans, waves, beaches and marine life
  • And MAPS: the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies develops medical, legal, and cultural contexts for people to benefit from the careful uses of psychedelics and cannabis
