Bhutan | Goes organic

Bhutan | Goes organic | Sustainable Tourism | 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 curator insight, February 20, 2013 3:53 PM

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.

Ireland | Tourism businesses network committed to using Irish ingredients

Ireland | Tourism businesses network committed to using Irish ingredients | Sustainable Tourism | Scoop.it

Good Food Ireland links the agri-food sector with the tourism hospitality sector and brings to the consumer a network of businesses that are committed to using Irish ingredients in their cuisine. A Grant Thornton survey earlier this year showed that Good Food Ireland has assisted with raising the business profile of its network of businesses and heightened their awareness of local food. As a result of this 92 per cent of the organisation’s providers have increased their purchasing of Irish food over the past three years which has contributed in the region of €50 million to the local economy. By further strengthening the Irish ingredient-led experience within our hospitality industry and marketing it to the consumer, through a consistent standard, we will grow Ireland’s economy and reputation as a food tourism destination.
