Eco-tourism is a ‘Green Revolution’

Eco-tourism is a ‘Green Revolution’ | sustainable tourism | Scoop.it

Antother Eco Kid essay for Chaa Creek's Eco Kid Summer Camp, this time from Alyssa Coleman.

 

"I want to be an Eco kid because as kids I think we can make a big difference just by the little things we do everyday.  In our country Belize we need to educate the people more about healthy, clean and Eco friendlier ways of living in order to have a beautiful Belize.  We as proud Belizeans should stand up and let people know the proper ways to dispose garbage and other waste.  We need to reuse, like reuse plastic bottles or old tires to plant different plants in.  Reduce, reducing the amount of electricity you use or water, instead of using an automobile walk or ride a bike."

"Analysis of the various green certification schemes by independent experts has revealed many are worthless as they rely on self-certification in return for a membership fee or have no third-party verification at all."

Hotel 'walks the walk' when it comes to green issues - Western Morning News

Hotel 'walks the walk' when it comes to green issues - Western Morning News | sustainable tourism | Scoop.it

“Sustainability is a really crap word,” says Nick Waddington the manager of Trenython Manor, a spa and holiday resort near Fowey which has carved out an award-winning reputation for its environmental policies.

 

At the WMN Business Awards, in November, judges commended the hotel, which was built in 1872, for the way it has gone above and beyond in order to put the environmental agenda at the heart of its operations.

 

When the resort first started looking at its environmental footprint, Mr Waddington concedes that it was with a view to winning a green tourism award. But it has since evolved into something of a passion for all staff that has become an integral part of the business.
