Think About Eco-Tourism

Ecotourism has become a thriving industry in the U.S., in fact, about 13% of U.S. outbound leisure travelers (approximately 2.4 million Americans) can be regarded as ecotourists. In the United States, LOHAS (“Lifestyles of Health and Sustainability”) estimates that ecotourism, including eco-travel networks, green tourism, eco-volunteering trips, active sports trip programming, and environmentally responsible tourism, are among the fastest growing travel trends, and are estimated to be a $77 billion market. This represents 5% of the overall U.S. travel and tourism market.
