As the tourism industry grows, so does its impact on the environment. The industry now accounts for 8% of the world’s carbon emissions. But you don’t have to stop travelling completely and never go on holiday again to save the planet. Here’s our guide to ecotourism and travelling in the most sustainable way possible.
After the Christmas festivities, it’s traditional to make some healthy New Year resolutions. These are often about ourselves – losing weight, getting more exercise etc. But if you haven’t already, maybe this year it’s time to consider widening the scope.
Cruelty free cosmetics are currently very much in the public consciousness, with more people choosing to spend their money on products that haven’t been tested on animals.

Ecotricity has launched a new partnership with Green Tourism to help the UK’s tourism industry become more sustainable.
