How do you refresh your batteries when it comes time for a vacation? Have you ever thought of changing the pace a bit, or possibly taking an eco-friendly vacation?
For most of us, we see an eco-vacation as travel that minimizes the negative aspects of conventional tourism on the environment and enhances the cultural integrity of local people. In addition to evaluating environmental and cultural factors, an integral part of eco-vacations is the promotion of recycling, energy efficiency, water conservation, and the creation of economic opportunities for local communities. The global market for ecotourism, a small scale alternative to mass scale tourism, has exhibited double-digit growth since the early 1990s due to the rising ranks of discerning tourists and market players acutely conscious about the fallout on the environment from the reckless development of tourist spots. There are also eco-vacation opportunities such as Tree Vacations and the well-knownAgriturismo, that focus entire trips on making positive environmental impacts.
Here on RNN we don’t want to tell you that you need to go to an exotic, exclusive area in the Amazon to have an eco-vacation. On Natural Getaways, we will share with you all the best ideas and tips when it comes for that special time for you and your family to recharge your batteries, while at the same time making a positive impact on our environment.
