Ecobnb 4th birthday: outcomes in sustainability

Ecobnb community keeps growing up. The users of the platform are doubled in one year. We’ve engaged new partners, among which Imtrex Travel. We’ve started new collaborations with two important destinations in Trentino: the Adamello Brenta Natural Park and Alpe Cimbra. Ecobnb has explored the Alpine Pearls driving an electric car, that we’ve bought to make our travels more and more green.

In 2018 we’ve managed several events: lectures, workshop and courses. We’ve touched many Italian regions, from Basilicata to Cilento, from Piedmont to Tuscany, from Trentino to Emilia Romagna.

The figures about the platforms are doubles in respect to the previous year. More users, visited webpages (more than 4mn pages in 12 months), number of bookings both via web and mobile.

So we are proud to say that we’ve contributed to reduce by more than 24 thousand kg the carbon dioxide emissions. Thanks to green bookings around 384.935 trees have been saved this years.

Happy birthday Ecobnb!

What are the future outlooks? We’ve asked Simone Riccardi, Ecobnb’s CEO:

Increasingly promoting sustainable mobility. Spreading among the Ecobnb accommodations the electrical car recharge stations. To get there, we’re planning some specific workshops in partnership with Alpine Pearls and eMOTICON. This year we’ve also worked a lot on the efficiency of the online booking system. It will be online by the end of March“.

Nothing else to say but happy birthday Ecobnb!
