Vacations to Clean Up Your Travel Act!

A brand new book from Rough Guides, www.roughguides.com, has taken much of the effort out of choosing sustainable, low-impact, responsible vacations. Clean Breaks: 500 New Ways to See the World shares terrific travel ideas that are not only inspiring and unusual but that actually make a real difference in the lives of local people and on the planet. From the rustic, such as sleeping on houseboats in Kerela, India to witnessing the zebra migration in Botswana, to the more chic, such as taking the train hotel from Paris to Madrid, this full color 392-page book is packed with ideas to create a lifetime of great adventures.

“What makes a Clean Break?” ask the authors. “Essentially it is about minimizing your environmental impact – on your journey and at your destination – by choosing carefully how you travel and the nature of the place where you choose to stay. It is also about having a positive impact in other ways – by contributing where you can to the conservation of wildlife and local heritage, and supporting local economies.”
