To celebrate World Earth Day 2018, we look at Ecobnb and Green Pearls® who are leading the way in making sustainable travel possible for everyone, and find out more about their philosophy behind driving change in sustainable travel.
Ecobnb: Sustainable tourism is very important issue for the future of our planet. Travellers around the world are quickly increasing every year. Unfortunately also ways of travel that are very impactful on the planet are growing. Let’s think for example of cruises, that has had the biggest growth in the last 20 years, but at the same time responsible of the destruction of the coral reefs.
I think we have to change the way of travelling, choosing more sustainable solutions, respectful of the planet, places and of people. There are a lot of small and big project that are going in the right direction, but maybe it’s not so easy to know about them and to reach them. For example, with Ecobnb we created a network of amazing people that have built eco-friendly accommodations all around the world: organic farmhouses, amazing treehouses and eco-friendly B&Bs. The challenge of these eco-hosts is also ours: each of us can do something in his small way to better the world.
