About this group

Tourism is nothing new, but it is becoming more and more important for travelers today to be conscientious about the impact their explorations have on the places they visit. Tourists are now looking for ways to experience places responsibly, whether it be choosing accommodations that use green products and practices, or eating fresh foods sourced locally that support the community and the environment.

Vancouver Island is a premier destination for conscientious traveling, and this group aims at uncovering its extraordinary, and eco-friendly, secrets. Travel, after all, should be about authentic, meaningful experiences that support and sustain local economies and ecologies.
