The Last Week
Well a it's been a busy week. Working on the various different elements that go into Eco Accommodation. The struggle I've been wrestling with is that you can either write something in relation to an area of an accommodations offering that it is very detailed and perhaps overly specific, or something that is more general but verges on being so vague as to really not be fit for the purpose of giving a wider understanding of the "eco" terms around eco accommodation. So for example something like "waste management" it's obvious what it means. But the manifestation of this management of can be so varied, it can be tricky to nail down. An Eco lodge can have such a different offering to its guests from an eco urban hotel. I think it can be split simply into two straight forward catagories, there is the minimisation of waste by controlling consumption at source, for example, smart lighting which turns on when there is movement in a guest's room and turns off when there isn't. The other form of waste management is the more obvious is the more obvious, namely the management of waste after it has been created, like sewage or plastic for example. Anyway, I'm still wrestling with it all so more tales of further definitions to follow no doubt. On another note, the ecothreesixty.com website is getting more pages indexed by Google which is a great, we're now comfortably into double figures.
