Prince Harry Launches New Travel Program to Encourage Eco-Friendly Tourismopens in new window
There is a growing demand from eco-conscious tourists for access to more sustainable options while traveling; a recent survey conducted by Booking.com showed that more than half of all travelers are keen to make sustainable travel choices in the future but don’t know how. "The commitment from these different brands to work together and help build a global network of like-minded social entrepreneurs, NGOs, and policymakers is truly inspiring," Gillian Tans, chairwoman of Booking.com, tells BAZAAR in a statement. "Collaboration is the only path forward if we want to create a real paradigm shift in travel. We want to protect the destinations we all love and guarantee that they are happy and healthy for generations to come, but we can’t do it on our own. Even though we don’t have all the answers yet, we are determined to find them together."
