Travel Smarter Without Plastic Bottle

By Laeti, 11/13/2014 - 05:47

When planning a green holiday, we are thinking about checking the eco-credentials of the lodge, booking a local guide or off-setting our air miles. Additionally a very simple little step towards a more sustainable holiday is to avoid using plastic bottles: Get a stainless steel or thermos bottle and when travelling in areas where water is not drinkable, you can treat your own water with a steripen or purifying tablets. This simple action means a lot to the environment.

We are living in an ever more connected world but what about our animal and plant counterparts? Their natural habitat is being more and more reduced and disrupted through human activities. Nature reserve and national parks are a great way of protecting natural habitat and species. However being enclosed areas, they have the drawback of causing as well the extinction of some of the fauna and flora which can not freely move or adapt to the changes in environment and climate.

Why China could become the best ecotourism destination

By Laeti, 10/07/2014 - 03:33

China is not generally associated with ecology and sustainable development. However the travel boom experienced by Chinese citizen could prove to be the greatest chance for ecotourism to grow on an unprecedented level in China. The domestic demand for short trips to rural and green areas is exploding as more and more city dwellers are showing an interest for escaping the grey and polluted towns and (re)discovering the green beauties of their country. This is an opportunity to educate the population and raise awareness for environmental issues and challenges.
