Now you can enjoy earth-friendly travels in a destination known for its make-believe worlds. The new Orlando Green Travel app will guide you to a Central Florida getaway that is fun while also being a little kinder to the earth.
The Orlando Green Travel app (Sutro Media, $2.99) is the only travel resource of its kind to showcase the attractions, accommodations, restaurants, shopping venues and spas that work to minimize their eco-footprint while maximizing enjoyment for travelers in one of America’s most popular cities .
“Green travel is no longer just about camping in the woods or having to give up what you love while on vacation,” said Kimberly Button, author of Orlando Green Travel, as well as a Green Living expert for TV, a veteran travel journalist, and founder of greenWell. “In today’s world, green travel can include luxury spas, world-class dining and unique destinations. It’s about finding the businesses that are reducing their environmental impact while also providing travelers with the fun and excitement that they desire on vacation.”
With more than 120 entries and over 900 photos, Orlando Green Travel features surprising green travel options including:
• All 24 Walt Disney World resorts are Florida Green Lodging certified.
