Green Travel or sustainable tourism is the new trend in the travel industry. Since the growing number of international travelers have a large impact on the environment and communities in the host countries, companies are beginning to offer more green products and services. Likewise the demography of travelers is changing, with an increase in the 50+ age group. The trend amongst those mature travelers is to seek out Green Travel, and to participate in adventure and life-long learning opportunities. Typically such travel includes physical activity, environmental interaction and cultural immersion. Concern about global environmental and social issues is another reason travelers increasingly want to connect with different cultures and to participate in solutions to these issues. This may include volunteering in environmental or social programs.
