The Croatian magazine ‘Apartman Plus’, dedicated to the world of hospitality, delves into the topic of sustainability with Ecobnb, reviewing the main eco-label certifications for accommodation facilities
Eco-friendly, organic, vegan and zero-waste accommodations are becoming increasingly popular in the world. Croatia also follows this trend. If on the one hand, we witness the phenomenon of overtourism and some destinations, such as Split, Venice, and Dubrovnik, become increasingly crowded and lose their identity. On the other, more and more travelers are looking for authentic destinations and new ways of traveling. The conscious guest looks for quality, innovation, respect for the environment, places and people, green itineraries.
A growing number of hospitality companies recognize in the green a market niche to be developed. This also makes the eco-label important, which prevents “Greenwashing” and makes it easier for travelers to choose a truly green accommodation facility.
