DESCRIPTION OF INITIATIVE
Ecobnb is an innovative start-up that has created an environmentally-friendly web and mobile application connecting a community of travellers who want to discover a more sustainable way of travel, in harmony with nature, places and people, with a big network of eco-sustainable accommodations.
It allows responsible travellers to book eco-friendly accommodations around the world: organic farmhouses, treehouses, apartments, hotels, etc. To be part of the Ecobnb network, sustainable accommodations must satisfy at least five of the ten fundamental eco-sustainability parameters recognised by ecolabels and ecotourism certifications: organic food, high level of energy efficiency, 100% renewable energy, solar thermal panels for hot water production, ecological cleaning products, more than 80% waste recycling, car free accessibility, water flow reducers, energy saving lights, recovery and reuse of rainwater.
Furthermore, the Ecobnb servers are 100% powered by locally produced renewable energy sources. Those who choose to book through Ecobnb not only help the environment but also finance a network of small entrepreneurs engaged in sustainable projects.
