New Ecotourism Travel Website: Ethical Travel Portal

I recently came across a new responsible travel website called the Ethical Travel Portal. Here is how they described themselves:"Ethical Travel Portal aims to educate travelers on responsible tourism. We have adopted principles for responsible tourism. We work solely with partners who thoroughly practice responsible tourism.

Responsible tourism is about creating better places for people to live in and to visit. Ethical Travel Portal is about educating people in responsible tourism on the grassroots level. We want to spread the knowledge about how responsible tourism can be implemented in any company by learning from local experts. Our logo, the three clover leaves, symbolizes the triple bottom line: economy, social and environmental responsibility. The guidelines for responsible tourism were chartered in Cape Town in 2002 and followed up in Kerala in 2008". In case you want to have more information on what they do, have a look below at their Twitter account.

I quite like the website that is really easy to use, but it is still to basic according to what you can do at the moment. Hopefully, as the project was launched last year we can hope that some improvements are on the pipeline. Good luck!!
