Bhutan | Goes organic

Bhutan | Goes organic | Tourism : Sustainability | Scoop.it

By banning the sales of pesticides and herbicides Bhutan has outlined a clear path for the future of its agriculture: it will become the first wholly organic country in the world. Bhutan was already largely organic, but the recent decision announced at the Delhi Sustainable Development Summit 2013 aims to make it possible for the tiny Himalayan country to cut the last bond with dangerous agricultural chemicals.

Tourism:Collaterals's insight:

In 1971 Bhutan set a new concept for measuring progress. Rather than using the amount of goods and services produced by the country (known as Gross Domestic Product or GDP) it implemented a new measure and criteria known as Gross National Happiness or GNH. This measures the spiritual, physical, social and environmental wellbeing of its inhabitants and territory.

¿Tourism:Sustainability | Teenager flies via Berlin because it is cheaper than getting the train in UK. | Tourism : Sustainability | Scoop.it
A cost-conscious teenager found the perfect way to save on his journey home - by booking a flight via Berlin.  Jordon Cox, 18, realised it would cost him £50 to travel from Sheffield to Shenfield in Essex by train but if he “went the extra 1,017 miles” he could fly via the German capital and save £7.72.
Tourism:Collaterals's insight:

Mr Cox said he knew it wasn’t the most environmentally friendly way to travel but it gave him the chance to save money and visit a city he had always wanted to go to.
