Eco conscious journey

Today, eco-travel is one of the many factors driving the green industry, an idea that is at once attractive and controversial. So what is eco-travel and why is it a hot topic of discussion?

Eco Travel is a way of making decisions based on the fact that economics and ecology take into account the decision-making process of where you are going, how you are going to get where you are going. . . And even what to do when you come. Understanding eco-life is based on the idea of ​​minimizing our individual and collective human “footprint” or the impact we have on our actions on the environment. Let’s face it – every time you fly in a car or use other traditional modes of transportation, it can get you to where you are going fast, but the by-products have a negative impact on the environment.

The tourism industry spends a total of millions of dollars. From transport and shelter, to service and travel organizations, the hope is to reduce or offset the impact of their business on the environment, either because they are real ecosystems or as a way to compare themselves to the rapidly growing and highly popular by consensus. “We need to” and desperately need to take care of a planet we all share.

Some critics suggest an immediate and aggressive change in travel behavior, such as not traveling or staying home. But for many, it is an unrealistic solution to a broad and complex issue. Of course, thinking about such extreme shifts can lead to far fewer options across the spectrum … many that can be applied on a personal level, and some that can be shared with family and friends to help make the topic clearer.

According to the Natural Marketing Institute (NMI) և Silvercliffe Media, Inc. According to a 2005 industry report, Eco Travel represents $ 24.2B. Many countries depend solely on tourism for their economic survival. So where do we balance? For those who are not so ready for home adventure, but want to responsibly approach the journey. Here are some resources to help you on your journey.


Great hospitality is something we all hope to complement in our travels, but when it comes to green space, it can be a difficult task, especially for chemically sensitive individuals or those who just want to get more used to nature. From cottages and small hotels to large hotels and resorts, the ecological resort has become a new necessity for travel.
