Welcome to a Clean Break

Near Lee Bay On The South West Coast Path

We all love taking a well–earned break and a memorable holiday. It can be even more rewarding and relaxing knowing that our trip is promoting local economic development in a developing country and/or having a reduced impact on the environment, wildlife and climate change.

A Clean Break enables people to share ideas for holidaying in a more responsible way, and to discuss issues relating to ethical tourism.

How you can get involved

Hold A Clean Break in your area

We’ve created a package of ideas and guidance for creating your own event.


The inaugural A Clean Break event took place on Sunday 26th April 2009, at The Hanover Community Centre, Southover Street, Brighton, E. Sussex, BN2 9UD, UK.

Read about it on the Events page.

A Clean Break aims to be non-profit-making. Any proceeds from events will be donated to charity.
