#044 OTA Ghosting In The Glamping And Hospitality Industry#043 Eco-Tourism And Eco-Business In Action
With memories of fewer aeroplanes and clear skies, less traffic on the roads, and lower pollution during lockdown firmly in our minds, the desire of tourists to make different choices about how they spend their holiday time is starting to emerge. Show notes: https://inspiredcamping.com/043 This is great news for eco-accommodation and glamping businesses as the industry is enjoying a surge of staycation bookings and increasing interest from investors who are looking at diversifying their portfolios into more sustainable projects. But what about the perspective of the glamping business owner? What benefit is it to them to increase their environmental awareness, lighten their carbon footprint and strengthen the environmental ethos at the core of their business? This episode is about the journey of business owners Jo and Ben of Devon Dens, and how they've taken the concerns of their community seriously and demonstrated eco-tourism in action. This episode is about inspiring people to live differently, setting the right expectations for the guest, never deviating from your own core values, trusting your instincts, implementing as much off-grid infrastructure to make a difference, and yet staying as user-friendly as possible. Jo and Sarah talk about water saving, solar PV systems, and off-grid technology, reed bed systems for greywater, edible hedging, wildlife support, taking the time to connect with slow travel principles, and how you can have robust eco-credentials whilst also running a business.
