Earth Day, April 22, 2020
The global response to the Covid-19 pandemic has created some interesting environmental impacts. From the canals in Venice clearing up to a reduction in NO2 emissions over China. Many of the actions advocated to minimize climate change were enacted in less than a month’s time. So, this Earth Day will be different from days gone by. We are in the middle of a public health crisis. It is changing not only our personal day-to-day interactions, but also our business, and travel patterns. Will this lead to an increased focus on eco-tourism and sustainable travel?
Moving towards a focus on sustainable travel
We hope that when we come out of this situation that people continue to see the value of travelling, learning about new cultures, and experiencing new places. We also hope to see a shift in the ways that people evaluate their travel choices. Questioning the impact of travel on the environment, and the local community? How will your visit not only positively impact you, but also those around you?
The Fernie Fox Hotel is focused on ensuring that the hotel is not only as sustainable as possible but that we give back to our community in meaningful ways.
