Green Tourism

The Green Tourism movement

The term “green tourism” was first used around the 1980s, when hotels started suggesting to their customers to hang the towels if they wanted to use them again, in order to save water. The movement of Green Tourism promotes greener means for companies and service providers to operate. This means include:

  • Reduce energy consumption 
  • Save water
  • Reduce waste
  • Buy local and seasonal product
  • Protect biodiversity
