Best Green Goods for Your Next Eco-Adventure
Green Travel has blossomed into it's own booming industry. Fueled by conscientious consumers and the need for recycled, reusable products, "green" travel products, and "green" travel itself, have popped up everywhere, from Costa Rica's moist jungles to your favorite travel depot down the road.
Too kind to scream, "I told you so!" from the rooftops, Sustainable Travel International, who goes by the motto "leave the world a better place," is silently nodding in approval. To help spread the word, the eco-friendly travel organization has recently launched its first Annual Green Gear Guide. Filled with resource efficient, recycled and organic goods, the Green Gear Guide promotes products offered by distributors that gain fair prices for the local producers of their goods.
