From Green Frogs to Blue Footed Boobies
Widness & Wiggins Public Relations is delighted to announce that green travel visionary Irene Lane has asked us to work with her highly innovative company, Greenloons (http://www.greenloons.com/) that guides families to travel experiences managed by certified third-party suppliers engaged in eco- and sustainable tourism.
Irene founded Greenloons in 2010 for the global community of nature enthusiasts and wildlife conservationists interested in accessing detailed and reliable information about responsible, sustainable and certified ecotourism travel vacations both in the US and abroad.
Greenloons is a first-of-its-kind online resource aimed at answering the growing need for accredited eco-tours and sustainable holiday travel in the tourism industry. Greenloons.com provides ecotourism education, news, comparable certified ecotour and volunteer conservation program listings, tour reviews and booking services, plus a forum for the community to share its personal vacation stories and tips for establishing ecotourism in any corner of the world.
Ecotourism is one of the fastest growing sectors of the tourism industry and over the past ten years has become a billion-dollar-a-year market. The green travel segment is estimated to be growing 5 percent annually worldwide, representing 6 percent of the world?s gross domestic product and reflecting 11.4 percent of all consumer vacation spending.
Irene holds an MBA in International Finance as well as a Certificate in Sustainable Tourism Management. Greenloons was recently invited to become a member of the Global Sustainable Tourism Council. Greenloons currently partners with the Rainforest Alliance, ClimateCare, The International Ecotourism Society, and the Global Sustainable Tourism Council in order to further promote best management practices in sustainable tourism and the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
