Eco- friendly tourism involves the education of environmental
issues such as, the protection of natural resources
or endangered species
but also education about the cultural and historical
valuesparticular for the region.
In addition to visiting the natural areas there also should
be an effort to protect and empowering the local community,
socially and economically.
For an active holiday

Provide positive experiences for both
visitors and hosts
Provide direct financial benefits
Provide financial benefits and empowerment
for local people
Raise sensitivity to host countries'
political, environmental, and social climate
Support international human rights
and labor agreements
and foreign tourists should adopt the "leave no trace"
For example if you plan a picnic in a natural site it will be
much easier to leave no trace if you use traditional products
: bread, pastries, fruits, dry fruits (dates, apricots, figs,
raisins...), almonds, nuts... Avoid modern products with non biodegradable
packages. Collect all your waste and bring them back in a town
where garbage collection is organized.
some examples of the time needed for waste to decompose :
•Tissue (Kleenex): 3 months
•Cigarette filter : 1 to 2 years
•Fruits peel : 3 to 6 months
•Chewing-gum : 5 years
•Aluminium can : 50 to 100 years
•Plastic bag : 10 to 20 years

The 27 (24 active and 3 backups) satellites
making up the GPS network over earth send microwave signals at
light speed to communicate positions. For years, the military
has used GPS coordinates to locate people, targets, set navigation
and establish meeting places. Today, people use GPS for hiking,
driving, SCUBA diving, golf and other applications where specific
locations are needed.
