The Low Down On Green Living
June 5th, 2008
Our dear friends over at Ecofabulous have come out with another feature we’re nuts about: The Ecofabulous Travel Guide. If you’re looking for an eco-friendly destination, the Ecofabulous ladies will point you in the right direction.
In California, they highlight some outstanding places– like the Sacred Sands Guest Retreat in Joshua Tree, and the Post Ranch Inn in Big Sur. In Taos, New Mexico the El Monte Sagrado retreat looks simply divine. It’s entirely powered by solar and geothermal systems and their spa treatments use local, organic flowers and herbs. “Think lush and indulgent with a ‘beyond organic’ twist.”
They also recommend some pretty far-flung destinations in Egypt, Fiji, and Kenya, which look simply breath-taking. But you’ll need to make sure they don’t steal everyone’s breath by getting some carbon offsets for your journey. (Remember that it’s best to vacation as close to home as possible to reduce your carbon emissions load. To learn more on the environmental impacts of travel, please click here.)
What’s really great about the Ecofabulous guide is that they go beyond the gorgeous locations and include all sorts of eco-smart information about how to get to your destination (e.g., rent a hybrid) and eco-friendly sunscreens, bug sprays, luggage and more. Bon voyage, mates!
