Different types of Eco-Friendly Places:
There are two categories of eco-friendly places; they are Eco Lodges and Green Hotels. Both focus on being environmentally responsible, in addition to minimizing their negative impacts. That said there are two main differences. On the one hand, Green Hotels focus on implementing eco-friendly programs. These include renewable energy sources, recycling programs, and eco-friendly toiletries. Eco Lodges apply the same practices but also educate guests on local ecosystems and indigenous culture. Specifically, Eco Lodges reinforce a sustainable outlook on travel which is based around improving the local ecosystems, economy, and community.

A sustainable safari in South Africa…
Luxury and amazing wildlife adventures don’t have to come at the expense of sustainability. An increasing number of African lodges has started to prioritize earth-friendly practices as much as they do show-stopping safaris.
Those lodges use a water filtration system that negates the use of bottled water. Furthermore, they don’t use cling wrap, straws or plastic bags, but rather rely on things like environmentally-friendly bee-wax wraps and re-usable eco-coffee cups made out of bamboo fiber. A rain water harvesting system is also implemented. To reduce food transportation, a garden is grown on site with organic waste donated to the community for stock feed and compost. Some of those lodges initiated an exceptional reforestation program seeing over 100,000 seedlings planted per year that has directly led to an increased abundance of flora and fauna in the surrounding area.
