SUSTAINABLE TIP OF THE WEEK
Two tips for sustainable tourism
1. Look for certifications from LEED, Green Globe, Rainforest Alliance, and/or the Global Sustainable Tourism Council to ensure that they follow best practice for sustainability.
2. While touring, buy locally made products, seeking out indigenous artisans and learning about their craft. It makes a great souvenir and will bring back memories of your trip.
