A new eco-friendly travel directory has been published to help flight passengers book holidays to green destinations.
The Travelocity guide features a number of destinations and properties that offer ‘meaningful sustainability initiatives’, and can be considered a trusted source of information for people looking to book an environmentally-friendly break this year.
Commenting on the guide’s launch, Kathleen Hogan, director of the Environmental Protection Agency, said: "Choosing energy efficient places to stay is another way everyone can help in the fight against global warming."
Travelocity is also involved in the development of the first sustainable tourism guidelines through its membership of the Global Partnership for Sustainable Tourism Criteria.
It is designed to provide a framework for the increasingly popular trend of sustainable tourism and to ensure that tourism is capable of helping rather than harming local communities and environments.
Recent figures from Travelocity showed that domestic air fares in the
US were beginning to fall in price.
The average cost of a domestic flight ticket is now $24 (£17.60) cheaper than it was during the same period last year.
