Ecologist launches sustainable tourism blog
The Ecologist Magazine has launched an online blog on sustainable tourism. Written by the former editor of the Ecologist, Jeremy Smith (pictured left)*, it will look at "the issues surrounding tourism's future, from carbon offsetting to conservation, the destruction of local uniqueness versus the preservation of local culture."
Read the first posting, Sustainable travel - bons voyages?, on the Ecologist website: theecologist.org.

*Note from Greentraveller's editor: Jeremy is the bloke I teamed up with to write Clean Breaks - 500 new ways to see the world (which will be published this August by Rough Guides).
