Tourists for environment protection

This month we touch upon a tourism issue that is being taken seriously in the hospitality industry – “the concern for environment protection on a vacation”.  So while more and more people are getting aware about the need to do something, where do you go from here?

Let’s talk about the industry that we are in – timeshare, or vacation ownership.

On the one hand resort owners need to drive the implementation of ecotourism practices at their resorts. You can start with outlining a set of easy-to-understand guidelines that visitors and tourists can follow. At a second level you need to go from awareness to implementation – by helping your guests follow these guidelines.
