ecobookers is launched!

After months and months of hard work, http://www.ecobookers.com/ is finally born!

ecobookers is founded in the belief that overseas travel can be a beneficial thing - not only should it be possible to visit new countries and experience new cultures without doing harm to them, it should actually be possible to have a positive impact.

Staying in an eco-friendly hotel or lodge is a big part of this, but I know from long hours of experience that they can be pretty hard to find. There are so many hotels describing themselves as eco-friendly, yet on closer inspection their policies run to little more than using bio-degradable detergents or changing the bed-linen less frequently.

But there are many great eco-hotels, lodges, hostels and camps around the world, and it's my mission to find them!!
