Green Tourism. It is a concept that some people have a hard time getting their mind around. You’re not alone. Even I don’t fully understand it, but it is a growing buzz-word in the travel industry. So what does it mean to be a “green” destination?

A hotel that treats and re-uses waste water, packages their shampoo and toiletries in recyclable materials, has refrigerators and mini-bars with low-energy ratings, and installs special low-water shower-heads and toilets could say that they have green practices. But can they truly call themselves green? At what point is a destination considered green?
