Planning a holiday? Make sure it’s sustainable with Sustainabletrip.org20/07/2010
With the summer now upon us, thoughts turn to sun, sea and holidays to come. To celebrate this time of year, the Frogblog UK is publishing a series of tourism-related articles starting with the launch of our new website to help you find your next sustainable trip – SustainableTrip.org.
SustainableTrip.org is a database of hotels, tour operators, and other businesses (such as restaurants) in Latin America and the Caribbean that have been certified by a sustainable tourism certification programme, verified by the Rainforest Alliance, or recommended as being sustainable by a reputable organisation.
SustainableTrip.org is a valuable, unique resource in that it provides travellers, tour operators and travel agents with a credible, comprehensive listing of sustainable tourism options from a trusted conservation NGO. The sustainability claim of each business is verified before it is listed on the site.
SustainableTrip.org supports business owners’ efforts to become sustainable by promoting them to key tourism markets in Europe, the United States, Canada and Latin America.
Online since 2005 as the Eco-Index of Sustainable Tourism, SustainableTrip.org features a more powerful search engine, an updated design, Google Maps of business locations, links to promotional videos and information in French.
