Sustainable Travel & Eco-Tourism

Going Green: Eco-friendly content!

We recogize that travel inherently uses a lot of energy and a lot of resources, since it involves moving us (and our luggage) large distances around the world. Here are a number of suggestions for reducing our impact as well as our "carbon footprint".
