Resort Properties Going Green – You Bet !

With all the hype about global warming, everything seems to be going green, including travel resorts and homes being built in resort destinations.  Ecotourism  has become the new buzzword in the global world of tourism.    Many luxury resorts are staying on top of this trend by building sites that utilize less energy through the means of solar panels and wind, putting a greater emphasis on recycling and using materials native to the area.

Restaurants in these areas try to maintain their menus on the local foods from the area.   It may mean buying organic goods grown locally, purchasing meats locally that do not use additives in the feed and are free range.  These animals are allowed to feed in the pastures instead of being on a controlled regiment of diet and nutrition to maximize size as most farms are currently run.  Vegetables are picked fresh without pesticides and dishes are developed to emphasize the local crops.

There are many ways to be “green”  and the same  applies to Eco-tourism.  There are many sites to view all offering different amenities.
